Storyline

Donny's a cocky kid from New York who likes to dance. He goes to New Orleans and he unwittingly takes part in a criminal act. He is arrested and sent to jail. He gets out on parole and makes a living by dancing in the streets. But his parole officer tells him to stop it because he's not suppose to be where he goes to dance as part of his parole. The officer tells him to get a job but he only wants to dance. He decides to go back to New York even though he's not allowed to. He goes to his brother Nicky who has a club. He learns that Nicky and his partner Kaz had a falling out when a rich guy convinced Kaz that he doesn't need Nicky. Nicky told Kaz that he's just using him to get to Kaz's sister who is also a performer who is hoping an agent will take her as a client because she could be sent back to Japan where she is from. When Donny sees her, he can't help but be interested in her despite Nicky telling him not to go near her. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

An amazing movie about dancing, passion and love.
4 April 2014 | by vinogradovairiSee all my reviews

Actually, I don't quite get why people leave so many negative feedback regarding this amazing movie. "Make Your Move" is one of the best movies about dancing and expressing the feelings through the moves, about passion, hard work and, of course, love. Pure love, which comes with lots of struggle and problems and which, on the other hand, makes people believe in themselves, makes them do things that they even could not have imagined of being possible to do. Romeo-Juliet-like story is really fascinating, and in the movie we can see a completely different, new side of it, which we have never seen before; the storyline is really wonderful - it kept me sitting on the edge of my seat, because there were so many cliffhangers I really enjoyed. To say more, I was really amazed by the incredible choreography, the soundtracks were fabulous as well, and I absolutely love the cast and the crew which did a great job - so many talented people in one movie, isn't it startling? I wish I could erase my own memory and watch this movie again and enjoy it in its whole like I did when I watched it for the first time. One of my favorite movies for sure, and I'm quite picky at this point. "Make Your Move" is an amazing movie about dancing, passion, love and so much more - I will never regret the day I made the decision to watch it.
