Impressive
10 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't explain in words on the impact that this movie has had on me. I would recommend it to anybody that is looking for a film that has it all: great acting, excitement, drama, HUMOR and intense dance scenes. Shabba-Doo really carries the movie with hot choreography and excellent portrayal of the bad boy who really has that innocence buried deep down inside. The character Dean plays a great antagonist that highlights the movie with his intense attitude, great hair and unforgettable facial expressions. Blade steals the show with his portrayal of a man leading two lives, a Hispanic who changed his identity after he was adopted at the age of 14 by a white parents. After the movie is over and the butterflies leave your stomach, you'll thank me.
