Battle B-Boy (non-spoiler) Review
22 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was great. It had all the thrilling dance/combat sequences to satisfy any thrill-seeking dance or martial arts fan, but it also had more. To call it a dance movie would be to do it a disservice since it had none of the crappy stuff found in most dance films. While one doesn't turn to these films to see fine acting (and dance films have some of the worst) the performers in Battle B-Boy had such charisma and charm and obvious love for what they were doing that I didn't even notice any lack of acting skills. I got completely caught up in their story. I kept thinking of something to compare the unique movie to, and later while talking with John Kreng, the stunt coordinator and one of the producers, I got the perfect reference. He said that they were trying to go for a Saturday Night Fever tone, and I thought that was EXACTLY the perfect comparison. Without the glossy Bee Gee's soundtrack the comparison had eluded me. The music for Battle B-Boy was more conducive to the battle sequences. The movie's highlight was a dance/combat battle against a group of dancers using an old-school robot technique. All the battle sequences throughout the movie were captured with amazing clarity by cinematographer Jason Inouye, and given the time constraints and budget for a film like this, that the scenes look as fluid and clear as they do is truly an amazing feat.
