It’s undeniable that the good-natured “Afterschool Special” vibe here plays to the film’s corny strengths, and the dancing is impressive. So much so that it’s almost impossible not to cheer during the final round.

Should satisfy the planet of b-boys and girls to whom it preaches. Read full review
The young dancers' undeniable skill and athleticism is squandered in this formulaic, overly familiar dance movie. Read full review
An enjoyable movie not because of any special gifts by the filmmakers or emotional resonance in the script. It was more like destiny. Once someone jotted down the concept on a cocktail napkin and hired B-Boys who could actually dance, the movie pretty much had to turn out OK. Read full review
The singer and tabloid darling Chris Brown more than holds his own with this crew, apparently not even needing a dance double. Read full review
The 3-D is a pain, and the excitable editing, slo-mo and speeded-up action frustrate attempts to watch the athleticism on display, but the last half-hour takes it up a notch. Read full review
It isn’t good by any stretch of the imagination, but B-movie lovers who like their dance movies flashy, fun, and spectacularly dumb shouldn’t mind. Read full review
So fatally frontloaded with endless training montages, awfully written, indifferently acted drama, sports-film platitudes and jaw-dropping product placements that only the hardiest of viewers will make it through to the payoff. Read full review
This 3-D spectacle is less the dance movie that's going to make b-boying cool again than a shill for sponsors' gear. Read full review
The miracle of the new 3-D dance film Battle of the Year is how it can be so relentlessly boring while there is so much frenetic activity on screen. Read full review
