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>

Body rock
31 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The best part of the movie for me was watching the new york city breakers. Why did they choose Lorenzo Lamas for the lead i will never know. You can not beat style wars or beat street. The title track was okay for that time but the rest of the film and it's scripts was absolute garbage. Although from 1980-1985 their were quite a few hip hop movies about but this for me is still at the back of the stack. Lorenzo's best roles were in Grease as the nerd(to bad his brains are in his biceps) and of course Falcons Crest. I do not know what he is doing these days but good luck to him. PS Lorenzo Lamas and Lucinda Dickey of the Breakdance movies would have made a great team!
