I think this movie was a perfect way of contributing to the hip hop culture and what its like to be fond and into the lifestyle.that alot of movie goers dont understand why most movies based on this culture is made!I seen alot of comments from those that have no idea what its like to be a fan of street dancing,and maybe if they took the time to watch and learn why its such a big deal in dance films..they would understand why it dont take much storyline or an oscar winning role acting in any movie that is based on the dance,but thats what this movie brings to the table about street dancing and the lifestyle..wich I was fond of back in late 70's early 80's and wich still is going strong today all over the world,and I commend benson lee's contribution to try and teach the world what the culture and lifestyle is about and means to the world of hip hop..the music the dance and the lifestyle..is all they need-kudos- to the hip hop nation and benson lee for trying to teach the world..what the dance is all about!!
I think most critics should realize when watching a movie about street dancing theres never a truly good storyline or epic movie other than the dancing for wich most the movie is made for,and unless your a street dancer or have any idea what its like to be one then a movie like this wont appeal to the vast majority of movie goers! You have to understand street dancing and the whole battle scene to truly enjoy another street dance film..other wise looking for a oscar role lead or superb acting was meant for a robert de niro or al pacino kinda flick,cause no street dance film will ever have an effect like that on storyline movie buffs,but the dancing will be outstanding to say the least so unless you appreciate street dancing or movie about battles wich 99% of wich the movie is made..these kinda movies are not for you so see a title like this or you got served dont waste your money,cause it wont have what your looking for,but if your into talented dancers in there own right then this kind of movie will appeal-critics lol-
The storyline was bland,but it was the dancing that made this movie for me..I watched it for the battles that was something I enjoyed from my life into the hip hop culture..the dance was what this movie is truly about and lil saint this one for you baby!!
Classic hip hop and story of the breaking scene..not much story was needed to explore the world of the hip hop culture and why it was such a big thing for teen youth back in the 80's this lifestyle was a great alternative from the scourage of street gangs and street violence..this was a perfect touch into the hip hop culture..classic!
