Breakin'

( 2 )

Overview

The first major breakdancing film, Breakin' has the twin advantages of freshness and boundless energy. Lucinda Dickey plays a dancing student who dislikes the hidebound regimen of her demanding teacher.

Overview

The first major breakdancing film, Breakin' has the twin advantages of freshness and boundless energy. Lucinda Dickey plays a dancing student who dislikes the hidebound regimen of her demanding teacher. She breaks free from terpischorean tradition when she befriends a bunch of street kids devoted to breakdancing. Yes, it's basic Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland stuff, right down to the Big Audition at the finale. Still, Breakin' is a most engaging time capsule, highlighting a wealth of top-ten musical hits as well as such stars-in-the-making as "Shabba-Doo" (Adolfo Quinones), "Boogaloo Shrimp" (Michael Chambers) and "Ice T" (Tracey Morrow). Within a year of its release, Breakin' spawned a sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Reportedly shot and released within one month, the original Breakin' was a monster at the box office and an entertaining, if not unabashedly formulaic flick that helped break open the street culture to the masses in 1984. Despite the male leads having no acting experience (both were legends on the circuit), the flick doesn't sink under this weight, but flies with the energy that they throw on the screen; besides, the main focus is the dancing and that's where the flick truly delivers. Additional nods go out to Ice-T flexing his early Sugarhill Gang-style rap muscles. Speaking of muscles, check out none other than the "Muscles-from-Brussels," Jean-Claude Van Damme in his very first on-screen appearance during the beach dance-off clip in the beginning (he's the extra in the unitard and the goofy grin). The end credits promise a sequel, which was indeed rolled out the same year, just seven months later, with one of the most infamously mocked titles in movie history -- Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    This is a hiphop headz classic

    This movie is worth picking up along with Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo. If you have any interest in breakdancing this is the perfect dvd for you. Old Skool Baby!

    Classic

    I used to watch this movie all the time when I was like five or six years old and when i got my new DVD player, I kept wondering 'What should be the first movie I'll buy?' and I instantly thought of this movie. My original copy was stolen about sixteen years ago and this wasn't exactly the easiest movie to find. I watched again and I love it the same way I did when I watched it as a little girl. James Hill, a movie critic, talked about how bad the acting was in this movie as well as 'You Got Served' and I had to laugh because much of the acting was pretty bad, but just like 'You Got Served', the dance scenes completely outweighed it. Both movies also gave you the chance to see some actors/actresses that should become successful, ex: Turbo was pretty good and J-Boog was really good. My six-year-old nephew watched it last night and even liked 'Breakin' better. Now you know if a movie came out almost two decades ago and it's still classic, that was one great movie. For the love of hip-hop, I totally appreciate this movie!
