Was expecting breakdancing
16 February 2021 | by max_g-30350See all my reviews

I was under the impression this movie was about breakdancing... It is not. It is however about dancing, stage performance, and i must admit it does contain some impressive dancing, especially the breakdancing, the stage performance is cool too... But it is not breakdancing.

This whole movie is about a dancer who has to make a stage performance for a... Thing... Anyway she goes to some city, and is inspired by breakdancing, and sets out to get a teacher. They have 3 weeks to make a performance, so they focus on making it unique... Which is funny because the movie is not. Unique that is.

The movie has weird pacing, it feels offbeat, the then story feels off too, it lacks motivation and emotion, you never really get a feel for the character or why they are pressuring this goal.

The goal that is set to be the ultimate goal is then defeated, to be replaced by a new goal... combined with the sup plot and drama.... So it all kinda feels ruched because it all has to happen in only 1 hour and 37 minutes

All in all i was left a bit disappointed by the lack of actual breakdancing and unfocused due to pacing. I did enjoy some of the movie, some of it was cool.
