Plot Summary
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. Dante picks former dancer Jason Blake (Josh Holloway), a boozy, widowed basketball coach, to select, then train a worthy team. 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.

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

  • Should satisfy the planet of b-boys and girls to whom it preaches. show more

  • At the risk of sounding 100, I think it’s regrettable this film had to be shot in digital 3-D. Both those formats actually do a frustrating disservice to the depiction of the action, making them look choppier, more flickery and occasionally blurrier than they would otherwise. show more
