Andre-Julius 'Thundakat' Abrams,
In the scene where Turbo dances all around the room, there is a hole in the ceiling (close to the skylight) through which one can see the movement as they spin the room around to create the illusion. See more »
This is the film dreams are made of. Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo is non-stop entertainment with maximum jammage. I love this movie, it seems that cheesiness knows no bounds. Every ten minutes there is a relentless dance sequence that reminds me of a John Woo action sequence, it is both well choreographed and ridiculously crazy. The story is so standard and formulaic there is almost no need to worry about what the hell is going on except for another boogaloo around the corner. The performances by the actors are just stomach-churningly hilarious and whenever Shabba-Do randomly zips up his pants you can't help but roll on the floor in hysterics. As the films progress it slowly loses it's grip on reality which is shown in a dancing on the ceiling breakdown, a crazy hospital number, and the character's willingness to die for a community center! Costume changes are made every 5 minutes or so and boy are there a lot of costumes, I find it very hard to believe that some point in time this was considered cool. Or was it? Anyways if you are looking for the most relentless cheese this side of King Solomon's Mines (1985) then get down with the boogaloo, Electric Boogaloo that is.
