Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This sequel to the surprise hit Breakin' is every bit the opportunistic quickie that its sequel status might lead one to suspect. However, that's not a bad thing: Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo knows exactly what its audience wants (i.e. breakdancing, and lots of it) and delivers the goods with relentless energy. The script harkens back to the musicals of the Busby Berkeley era, complete with regular stops for fantasy musical sequences and a "let's put on a show to save our hangout" finale. Characterizations and plotting tend to be pretty inane, but director Sam Firstenberg skips past these hurdles by minimizing those elements in favor of cramming in as many musical set pieces as 90 minutes can hold. Some of these moments are surprisingly inspired, the best being an all-stops-out dance sequence in a hospital ward and an impressive scene in which Ozone dances up the wall and across the ceiling. This breathless approach makes Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo a blast of colorful, kitschy fun that is well worth a look to anyone nostalgic for the era of parachute pants and pop-locking.

    inspiration!!!!!!!!

    'Was so thrilled to be able to get this! After 20 years it still has the power to inspire me to drop to the floor, stretch and keep moving! Brings back memories of the Funhouse, Roseland, Soap Factory and changing clothes from club to club!
