Entertaining but the plot is thin
9 February 2016 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a young man in college, who lives with his mother and elder brother. They go completely broke, and hence he chooses to make some quick money by exotic dancing in a club for the ladies.

The plot is very predictable and thin, but it's OK because people watch "Chocolate City" for something other than the plot. One thing that it does well is the portrayal of interpersonal relationships, especially the mother and son relationship, and the relationship with the girlfriend. The tension and competition between dancers get portrayed nicely as well. I enjoyed watching the dancing and listening to the songs. I think "Chocolate City" is entertaining.
