Critic Reviews for Swing Kids
By the end, fancifully snappy dance numbers vie with grisly bullet ballet for top setpiece honors: Kang stages both with aplomb, leaving audiences caught between crying and cheering.
"Swing Kids" is such a dizzying, anachronistic mash-up of genres and cultures -- tap-dancing musical, violent war movie, social-justice drama, and slapstick comedy -- that it deserves respect, even if it falls short as it strains to cover all these bases.
Though a bit longer than necessary, the movie tells an engaging, enjoyable story, peppered with impressive dance numbers.
The plot's light and dark elements... start clashing halfway through this overlong feature and never resolve.
Combining the harshness of war with the exuberance of dance seems like mixing oil and water, yet ... [Swing Kids] is all at once powerfully evocative, undeniably charming, and completely heartbreaking.
