a really solid film … but it’s a real shame
The real shame is that someone might come to IMDb, see that this film is rated 2.6, think it’s a legitimate rating, and not see this film. This is truly a solid film.
Yes, the film is predictable, and at times cliché. Most of these inspirational films aimed at young people are. But this film rises above most others. It hits it’s notes very well, and the direction and choreography are on point. The performances – acting and dancing – were very good.
It’s a shame that so many people have such hatred in their hearts that they won’t expand their own minds by learning of cultures outside of their own. It’s a shame that so many people who have obviously never seen this film used their time and energy to rate this film a 1. How pathetic is that? I’m glad that this film was a financial success, despite the “haters”. I just feel sorry for the kinds of people who would make spreading hatred a part of their lives.
You can see by some of the comments made by some of the IMDb commentators, so to speak, that they never saw this film. It’s also obvious that they know nothing of the subject of this film, stepping. These are the people who might want to see this film and learn of something new.
I, for one, am not big fan of “Greek” organizations. Still, I thought that the messages in, the performances in, and the overall execution of this film was better than any in this recent group of college age/friendship genre films.
I enjoy films of all types, and I can honestly say that this is a solid film for this genre. Also, it’s new in subject matter, which makes it different from it’s peer films.
If you’re on the fence about seeing this film. You should see it. It’s pretty much what you think it is from the trailers, but it’s a very well made version.
I’d give the film a strong 7/10. For it’s genre, however, it’s as good as there is.
I’m 46 years old and a high school teacher. My husband and I took our college age daughter and our 16 year old son to see the movie yesterday even though we had read mixed reviews on it. This is one of those films where you should ignore the critics and get ready to be entertained. We all loved the movie and so did everyone in the theater judging by the clapping at the end. The story has been told a million times before ( boy from the hood is given an opportunity to get out of his dead end environment) but there aren’t many movies that show us blacks in higher education, much less the intense stomp competitions so popular in black universities. The dance scenes will make you want to jump up and start steppin’ even if you are white and lacking rhythm like me.
