Funny comedy in which a group of underdogs become involved with disconcerting situations when participate at a dancing machine contest
2 July 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Fun comedy full of entertainment and amusement with a team of very comical roles . It deals with quartet (Jordi Vilches , Eduardo Garcia , Chema Calderon , Barbara Muñoz) of young geeks decide to sing up the first national competition of dancing machine (an Arcade machine , Dance Revolution , ready to dance) to win the championship , so that they save money to buy a new serpent Boa which accidentally killed . They are trained by Johnny (Santiago Segura) , an unfortunate veteran who has had a moving life , as he was a dancing winner , but when a distress happened , he has been marked and successively humiliated by his old friend Fernando (José Corbacho) .

Nutty comedy about a bunch of freaks who take on a competition with unexpected consequences , it displays nutty humor , tongue-in-cheek , emotion , rapid flash choreography , funny situations , brief elements of drama and many other things . This ¨Maquina de Bailar¨ or ¨Dance machine¨ (2006) pays tribute to a lot of films of the seventies and eighties such as ¨Fever Saturday night¨, ¨Flashdance¨, ¨Staying alive¨, ¨Karate Kid¨ and specially to Sylvester Stallone and his Rocky series . Passable cast formed by adolescents and very young actors , most of them unknown . Support cast is pretty good , with some veteran actors as José Corbacho , Enrique Villen , Emilio Laguna , Benito Pocino and Josele Román . And cameos by Nacho Vigalondo and Antonio De La Torre . But it results to be Santiago Segura who steals the show as an unlucky , vulnerable worker who is abused and duped by his boss , José Corbacho . Atmospheric musical score by Javier Navarrete , considered to be one of the best Spanish composers and he has composed great number of successes , as national as international , such as : The devil's backbone , Pan's labyrinth , Mirror , The Warrior's way , Wrath of Gods , Cracks , Inkheart and Byzantium . In the film is added a lot of modern songs , soundtrack performed by duo vocal Charm , disco music and other incidental musical score . Colorful and brilliant cinematography by Teo Delgado , who has photographed some box office films as ¨Unresolved sexual tension¨ , ¨Paper castles¨ , ¨ Isi and Disi , high voltage¨ , among others . Being shot in Madrid , but most in studio and interiors .

The motion picture was regularly written and directed by Oscar Aibar . Oscar is a craftsman who has directed a few films , all of them have special issues and interesting themes , dealing with all kinds of genres , such as Spaghetti/Sci-Fi : ¨Atolladero¨ , Fantasy : ¨The Forest¨ , Thriller : ¨Rumors¨ , Comedy/Drama : ¨Platillos Volantes¨ and Biography : ¨El Gran Vazquez¨ also starred by Santiago Segura . Rating : 5.5/10 , Acceptable and passable .
