Movie Info

In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing. From the producers of Paranormal Activity and featuring narration by James Remar (The Warriors), THE FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphant montages and neon street wear that Moviefone calls "a rare ready-made cult hit." -- (C) Drafthouse

Critic Reviews for The FP

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8)

Rather than crafting a movie that's so bad it's good, writer-director brothers Jason and Brandon Trost have come up with something that's just plain bad -- and boring, and repetitive.

March 22, 2012 | Rating: 1/4

"The FP" so desperately wants to be cultishly admired for its bad-taste rollout of wacko characters, ugly costumes and vulgar slang that it forgets to be genuinely offbeat or funny.

March 16, 2012 | Rating: 1/5

You need to find a room full of people who get the joke and see this movie there, because audiences will be laughing so hard they'll be screaming.

March 15, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It falls all over itself to lampoon its midnight-movie forebears even as it borrows their contrivances.

March 15, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"The FP" works best as an operatic parody of mixed genres with lunacy on the fringes.

March 15, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4

Neither obliviously dreadful enough to be "so bad it's good,'' nor intentionally tongue-in-cheek enough to be funny.

Audience Reviews for The FP

In the future rival gangs fight for control of a lawless suburban town, gaining power and street cred by winning dance video game duels. You have to give THE FP credit for playing the goofy idea straight, but unfortunately the overall message seems to be that the wannabe gangsters of the apocalypse will be just as annoying as today's youth are.
