What is wrong with you People?The world is losing hope in how a life can be changed by good influence or a positive message.
16 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand the negative reviews for this movie.This deserve a 10 stars.Something is definitely wrong with people when they do not care for a positive message in a movie.This movie was beyond great,had a touch of everything.It shows what can happen when a person's influence can change lives.These young boys had no hope,they could not see a promising future.The streets are what they knew,and of course,some of you can't relate, but if you are a fair person,then you will try to understand it from that viewpoint.I was not raised in a bad neighborhood,nor the streets, and i still totally get this movie.Life is about sacrifices and there were many a lessons in this movie that are based on real life for so many young people out there.This is their reality, and however fate made an entrance in these young boys life.It brought them someone that made them believe in themselves. Whether dance is an art to you, or not.Only the true artistic, and creative minds can get this.The art of dance comes in many forms.I don't know why you all just see it being a stereotypical movie.I do not think they are exploited in this movie.All the reviews that are voicing this opinion is so Wrong!The point i am making is, some can't understand because their mindset is stayed or stuck on only the parts of these little boys being kids and the street dancing.But people who are giving bad reviews are using half of their brain.If you were to consider their upbringing,then any good positive element or opportunity that can make them productive or get them in a positive frame of mind is the greatest thing. Of course,some part of it might not be realistic to some folks, but they are clearly missing the point of the movie.This is a great and positive not to forget encouraging movie,especially for young people.If you cannot see the positive part which outweigh the environment,then you are close-minded and out of touch with the generation of young people that enjoy this kind of dance.Some need dance to be a part of keeping them occupied and productive.Thumbs up to Marques Houston!He has done an exceptional job.I could watch this with my nieces and nephews many times and keep this in a collection of good movies.I applaud the message of this movie and i will leave close minded people with this quote from Albert Einstein."Imagination is more important than knowledge".
