"Struggle of the Year" touches on exactly how the rest of the world gettings accepted b-boy society, but how they're no more regarded as chopping edge or cool in the United States.
That stresses the Sean Combs-like impresario, Dante (Laz Alonso): "How lengthy prior to hip-hop isn't really cool?".
He needs to secure his fashion trend, music and dance empire by putting American b-boys back on top. He employs an old dancing pal, W.B. (for "Wonder Bread"), now a grieving, sprituous ex-basketball coach (Josh Holloway of "Lost"). W.B. has to obtain himself up to speed up on the present state of dance, after that sponsor and coach a "all-star team" of the very best of America's finest to handle the remainder of the globe, which has actually passed America by and long controlled the yearly b-boy Olympics called "BOTY," the Battle of the Year.
That group contains diverse egotistic, chip-on-their-shoulder showoffs, since that's just what it takes to succeed. Real celebrity dancers such as Do Knock and Flipz are combined with others, including singer Chris Brown.
And aiding coach is Jewish hip-hop authority "Franklyn with a y," played by Josh Peck.
Benson Lee, director of the definitive docudrama on the globally sensation, "Planet B-Boy," co-wrote and directed this, and immodestly has characters view that movie and sing its applauds. Holloway can not also hint at a genuine dancing past, so the movie fakes that by having his coach run his people with drills (in split-screen series).
Peck, when of TELEVISION's "Drake & Josh," one-time star of "The Wackness," has a small, assisting task however is provided top billing. In this case, that suggests his every situation consists of coiffed and excessively fabricated close-ups. It's laughable.
Yet tabloid favorite Brown greater than holds his very own with this team, obviously not also requiring a dance double. The dance scenarios-- especially those including groups from Germany, France and Korea-- take the b-boy transfer to the following degree.
And there are lots of easy, undemanding laughs, the finest lines coming from Peck's assistant coach.
"You resemble a gazelle around," he applauds his employer. "A gazelle with arthritis." Which, while it doesn't describe the motion picture, does strike this category right in the bull's eye. But then, the appeal of "Step Up" and all its exhausted imitators is that the audience they're capturing for has no idea that there getting been 20 or 30 films specifically similar to this one that came prior to it.
He has to safeguard his dancing, popular music and fashion trend empire by placing American b-boys back on top. He employs an old dance pal, W.B. (for "Wonder Bread"), now a grieving, alcoholic ex-basketball coach (Josh Holloway of "Lost"). W.B. has to obtain himself up to speed on the present state of dancing, then recruit and coach a "dream group" of the best of America's finest to take on the remainder of the world, which has passed America by and long controlled the annual b-boy Olympics known as "BOTY," the Battle of the Year.
