Storyline

Chilly D is a young man in New York who just lives for the thrill of rapping and breakdancing with his gang, the Body Rocks. One night after performing in a club with his friends, Chilly gets an offer to perform at a high-class nightspot with a chance at becoming a star. He grabs the opportunity and soon he's on top of the world. Surrounded by all the trappings of his new-found fame, however, Chilly loses touch with the people and lifestyle that made him what he is. Will he turn his back forever on his past, or remain true to his roots? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Crap
11 May 2015 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

The third hip-hop/break dancing musical of 1984 (after Breakin' and Beat Street) and easily the worst. In fact, it barely got released theatrically at all. Lorenzo Lamas stars and let's just say he's no Adolfo 'Shabadoo' Quinones. He's such an unlikable meathead douchebag you'd have to be a sociopath to care whether he's successful in his music/dancing career or not. The other big problem is that the film's music, while not necessarily awful, is in no way hip-hop. It's all techno-pop. Lamas may be Hispanic, but the movie definitely feels like it was made more to appeal to whitebread audiences (not that the other two movies mentioned above weren't also made for that audience, but at least they featured actual black music). If you want authenticity, go for Beat Street. If you want goofy fun, go for Breakin'. If you want to be bored out of your mind, go for Body Rock.
