Storyline

Think breakdancing died in the eighties? Think again. PLANET B-BOY is a feature-length, theatrical documentary that re-discovers one of the most incredible dance phenomena the world has ever seen. Originally known as "B-boying", breakdancing was an urban dance form that originated from the streets of New York City during the seventies. Along with Emceeing, Graffiti and DJing, B-boying served as one of the crucial elements in the birth of hip-hop culture in America. Through the help of movies like Flashdance, Breakin', and Beatstreet, breakdancing took the country by storm, and teenagers across America were spinning on their backs doing "windmills" and training their bodies to "pop and lock." Like most dance fads, however, breakdancing eventually faded into the annals of pop culture history.

Shows What Being a True Bboy Takes
29 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary shows many different "crews" from all over the world that have come together in Germany for the battle of their lives. The main 5 crews are: Ichigeki (Japan), Last for One (Korea), Gamblers (Korea), Knucklehead Zoo (US), Phase T (France). The documentary goes through the lives and hardships faced by the crews and the members as individuals. It also shows how dedicated the bboys are in the hope of achieving their dream/goal.

The film really sheds light on this dance that not much know about and reveals what bboying is all about. Being a bboy myself, I can really say that the film is accurate in probably all they say about the art called bboying. This documentary has helped spread the hip-hop culture, something that I really want to see happen.
