Dante Graham (Laz Alonso) is a hip-hop mogul, but he was a breaker; now he wants nothing more than to see an American team win the Battle of the Year, an international b-boy tournament.

With just three months to whip a crew of 13 headstrong guys into a cohesive unit, Blake, his assistant (Josh Peck) and a choreographer (Caity Lotz) have a daunting job ahead of them.

  • An enjoyable movie not because of any special gifts by the filmmakers or emotional resonance in the script. It was more like destiny. Once someone jotted down the concept on a cocktail napkin and hired B-Boys who could actually dance, the movie pretty much had to turn out OK. show more

  • It’s undeniable that the good-natured “Afterschool Special” vibe here plays to the film’s corny strengths, and the dancing is impressive. So much so that it’s almost impossible not to cheer during the final round. show more

  • The young dancers' undeniable skill and athleticism is squandered in this formulaic, overly familiar dance movie. show more

    Chris Brown was such a good actor in this movie from the trailers that you see can\'t wait to see it when it comes in theaters in January 2013. Josh Peck was a good actor to but not better than Chris Brown is. Did you see Chris Brown with his shirt off.
