I Didn't Expect Much From A Martial Arts/Dance/Hip Hop/Film But I Was Highly Mistaken
First, let me state that I have given films like Gladiator, Casa Blanca, and other classics a "9" or "10". And though I don't put Battle B-Boy in that rank, I give it a "9" because I have never seen so much put into a low-budget ($20,000 I read) in my life. There was beautiful martial arts; not the Steven Segal faux stuff, dancing like one's never seen, buddies for life on the fight team, a peripheral plot of saving the life of one of their dying fathers, and some subtle moral lessons of decent human behavior from struggling middle class kids trying to do well, and do what's right. I was very impressed, and would love to see this Indie gem re-produced on a larger scale (or one like it with most if not all of the same cast). Not a waste of 90 minutes (though I was sure it might be at the start). Very worthwhile. Even my wife, a harsh critic, agreed.
