Body rock, 31 January 2006
Author: gurpreet007 from United Kingdom

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!
