You Got Served Reviews

February 4, 2004
Commits a variety of cinematic sins, none fatal individually but collectively enough to pull an audience under.

The movie dances when it should be developing, say, characters or story line.

The story is so bored with itself, it collapses -- but the diverse troupe of dance talents at least makes it an eclectic slide.

January 30, 2004
A thinly written, hoarily cliched story that serves mostly as connective tissue between the movie's chief draw, its dazzling dance sequences.

A street-dance film that's lively and silly and about as 'street' as a Britney Spears video.

January 30, 2004
A somewhat incongruous mix of high drama and street dancing in which the street dancing is fabulous, and the high drama is low grade at best.

January 30, 2004
Between the opening salvo and the equally staggering finale is a dull, dour drama that drains the movie of nearly all its exuberance.

Every bit as cliched, amateurish and feeble as its predecessors.

Christopher B. Stokes's film showcases the latest developments in hip-hop street dance, which, much like hip-hop music, appears to be a largely masculine domain.

The performers are elegant, expressive and viscerally exciting when they move.

Seems stuck in fad mode, a showcase in search of a movie.
