  • It's disappointing when the electrifying dance numbers are jettisoned for the lackluster story.

  • The salsa scenes are the main draw here, and while the camerawork is unremarkable - zoom in, then pull back, then repeat - the energy stays high.

  • Shine: The Movie is at its best every time first time director, Anthony Nardolillo, decides to give us an energetic dance sequence, full of good music, sweat and passion. [Full review in Spanish]

    October 26, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Shine wants to be a dance movie and a piece of social commentary at the same time. Too much of the running time is consumed by the commentary, which has all the depth of a third-grade book report.

    October 6, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • It's Zayas who anchors Shine. His gravitas shot through with mischief sets the film's tone, showing that serious-minded storytelling can still be fun.

    October 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • This rehash of save-the-neighborhood cliches - devised by first-time director Anthony Nardolillo and co-writers Corey Deshon and Ahmadu Garba - is instantly forgettable, except for the ridiculous use of F-bombs.
