The FP dances into brilliant silliness
13 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every so often a movie comes along that seems so out there you just have to check it out. Usually it ends up also being so horrible that you wish you never bothered. The FP is one of those films that when you see the trailer you can't believe someone actually got money to make this film, let alone anyone would want to see it. Can a movie basically about gangs that fight using their own version of Dance, Dance Revolution work on any level? The FP follows rival gangs in the future who use a game known as Beat Beat Revelation to establish dominance and take control of the area known as Frazier Park. This is easily one of the most ridiculous films to come out in a long time and somehow still manages to work. This film is not intended to be as serious as it appears which is the beauty of it. These guys knew exactly what they wanted to do and went for it. All the characters are way over the top and deliver some of the most annoyingly obnoxious ghetto slang you can imagine, but it adds to the silly nature of the experience. The fact that they manage to take the video game dance battles as serious as a cage match adds to the absurd brilliance of this film. You have to understand going into this movie that is exactly what it is meant to be and that is a joke. They have crafted a film around the most absurd subject matter and made it work creating a grindhouse type film and kidnapping story ideas from everything from Rocky to The Karate Kid to the Warriors. The acting isn't always the greatest, but it somehow just enhances a film that should never in a million years work, but does and in a not soon to forget fun way that must be shown to as many people as you can.

If you tell someone the plot of this film, you will get eye rolls and groans about how that sounds just stupid, but until you witness this you cannot believe it. This is one of those films that is sure to garner a cult following and is well deserved. You probably think this was made by some non-experienced filmmakers trying to break out, but these guys already have careers working on films such as the Crank series, Rob Zombie's Halloween, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and many more. These guys know how to craft a movie with next to no budget, but still give it that big budget feel. Be on the lookout for the Trost brothers in the future, especially since they seem to be planning more additions to this series.
