Dallas Observer
Director Christopher B. Stokes (House Party 4) shapes up the fabulous dance sequences with undeniable energy, and real-life brothers Houston and Grandberry are two of the most enjoyable musicians to appear onscreen since Sting played a bellboy.
50
Part soap opera and part thriller, and it has the unique characteristic of being both undeveloped and overwritten.

L.A. Weekly
Seems stuck in fad mode, a showcase in search of a movie.

The Hollywood Reporter
Assembling this vehicle for his young clients, music producer/manager/video director Christopher B. Stokes has attached an anemic plot to a series of dynamic hip-hop dance sequences.

Variety
A serviceable youth pic that's marginally less dumb than November's urban quasi-musical "Honey."

The New York Times
Will probably keep its core audience of suburban teenagers mildly entertained for the course of its 93 minutes. Urban grumps, however, may be distracted by Mr. Stokes's annoyingly overedited execution of the dance sequences.

Baltimore Sun
The astonishing brio and verve of street dancing deserves better than this.
25
New York Daily News
This amateurish drama about street-dance contests and busted friendship is about as real as Lil' Kim's chest.
25
New York Post
Cliched, amateurish and feeble.
25
Rarely do you encounter a movie without a shred of originality. You Got Served is such a cinematic vacuum.
