"Battle of the Year" touches on just how the other world gettings welcomed b-boy society, but just how they're no longer perceived as chopping edge or cool in the United States.
That frets the Sean Combs-like impresario, Dante (Laz Alonso): "How lengthy prior to hip-hop isn't really cool down?".
He has to safeguard his songs, fashion and dance empire by putting American b-boys back on leading. He employs an aged dance pal, W.B. (for "Wonder Bread"), now a grieving, alcoholic ex-basketball coach (Josh Holloway of "Lost"). W.B. has to get himself up to quicken on the existing state of dance, then sponsor and coach a "all-star team" of the most effective of America's finest to handle the other world, which has actually passed America by and long controlled the annual b-boy Olympics understood as "BOTY," the Battle of the Year.
That team consists of assorted arrogant, chip-on-their-shoulder showoffs, since that's just what it takes to be successful. Actual superstar professional dancers such as Do Knock and Flipz are blended with others, consisting of vocalist Chris Brown.
And assisting coach is Jewish hip-hop authority "Franklyn with a y," played by Josh Peck.
Benson Lee, director of the clear-cut docudrama on the globally sensation, "Planet B-Boy," co-wrote and directed this, and immodestly has characters see that film and perform its applauds. Holloway can not also mean a real dancing past, so the flick fabricates that by having his coach run his people via drills (in split-screen sequences).
Peck, as soon as of TELEVISION's "Drake & Josh," one-time star of "The Wackness," has a small, sustaining part yet is provided leading billing. In this instance, that indicates his every situation includes coiffed and very fabricated close-ups. It's laughable.
However tabloid beloved Brown greater than holds his own with this staff, apparently not also needing a dance double. The dance settings-- especially those entailing teams from Germany, France and Korea-- take the b-boy moves to the next degree.
And there are sufficient simple, undemanding laughs, the very best lines originating from Peck's assistant coach.
"You appear like a gazelle available," he praises his employer. "A gazelle with arthritis." Which, while it doesn't explain the movie, does hit this genre right in the bull's eye. After that, the charm of "Step Up" and all its exhausted imitators is that the viewers they're shooting for has no suggestion that there getting been 20 or 30 motion pictures specifically like this one that came prior to it.
He has to safeguard his dance, songs and fashion trend empire by putting American b-boys back on top. He hires an old dancing friend, W.B. (for "Wonder Bread"), now a grieving, alcoholic ex-basketball coach (Josh Holloway of "Lost"). W.B. has to get himself up to speed on the present state of dancing, then recruit and coach a "dream group" of the best of America's ideal to take on the remainder of the globe, which has passed America by and long controlled the annual b-boy Olympics known as "BOTY," the Battle of the Year.
