Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I watched this as I was a fan of the older 80's+ breakdancing films, but I just got the feeling that this subject has been pretty much done to death.

The dance scenes were amazing and show some real raw dance talent.
The music wasn't all to my taste, but did add to the atmosphere.
The story line was deja vu of so many underdogs struggling to make it in the world, are they going to....not likely.....oh, wait yes they do. Didn't see that coming. OK, that's a bit harsh and it's not fair to compare this film with the ealier generations films as dance moves improve, music and dress change, but I couldn't help but to see likenesses. Had this been the first breakdance film I had watched I would have rated it higher, but it isn't and I have to give an honest opinion.

This is going to appeal more to breakdancers, teenagers and hardcore lovers of everything breakdance.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The storyline to B-GIRL is fairly standard; Girl finds herself in trouble, girl moves states, girl wants to make new friends and `prove' her....but as the majority of the cast are professionally trained dancers their acting isn't the strongest, but it is passable, so it's best not to over-challenge them.
After a little while you'll be so engrossed in the dance routines, you will hardly notice the less-than-Oscar-worthy performances.

Naturally - a dance film has to have an engaging soundtrack in order to capture the audience... B-GIRL delivers. I'm not usually a hip-hop fan, but the music here seems `lighter' somehow.

And finally a quick comment on the extras. We get six different features, more then you get with a lot of big budget films.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Angel moves to LA after her girl friend dies in a knife attack aimed at Angel. The attack has left scars on her soul and body and she is unable to start a new life while blaming herself for the death of her friend. Add to that an alcoholic mom and having no friends, spending days in college and working in the nights to buy a ticket to NY endlessly, only her love for break dancing and a new friend (with shaky past but lots of commonalities) could rescue her from despair.

Needless to say, the story is just an excuse to showcase some of the best break dancing acts. I lost count of the number of break dancing events, but the last competition contained about 12 solo dances and a couple of them were breath taking to say the least. Some moves are a bit repetitive but that could be ignored easily for the overall quality of dances.

If you like to watch break dancing, then you must see this movie, just do not expect any good acting, story twists or character developments which of course were probably deliberately undermined to give more screen time to the dancers. Direction is just Ok-ish as well but having said that, camera work was really amazing and showed the best possible angles.

I give a 4 star rating to this movie for any fan of break dancing. Recommended!

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I wish I could say this was even a by-the-numbers dance flick, but the truth is that even this faint praise would be too good for this badly put together breakdance movie. Written and directed by Emily Dell, who has just one previous credit as a production assistant, I wonder how this project ever got greenlit.

For starters, the characters are apallingly miscast. The three women cast unconvincingly as daughter, mother and grandmother of the same family have perhaps 20 years age difference between them in total, and are even of different racial backgrounds.

Then there's the direction, which can't decide if it wants to be a documentary or a classic dance flick. The camera work and editing starts out clipped, raw and very mockumentary in style (with some terrible pacing shoehorned in), but soon reverts to Hollywood dance-movie conventions. This really jarrs and makes the film feel unfinished.

Thirdly there is the worst screenplay and dialogue I've encountered since Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus. The screenplay bounces from one cliche line to another whilst taking itself far too seriously, with too much emphasis on the fight of the B-Girl in a B-Boy world, and a heavy dose of romance against the gritty backdrop of LA gang war to feel anything other than embarrassingly trite.

The lead actress can really dance - she's one of the best B-Girls I've seen and certainly has the moves, if not the individual style, but there isn't nearly enough dancing in the film to satisfy the hardcore B-Boy audience this movie was obviously targeted toward.

Unfortunately B-Girl is a B-Movie made by the B Team, and will not feature on even the most hardcore Breaker's A list of Breakdance movies unless it gets re-cast, re-shot and re-edited.

If you're hoping for Step-Up or Step-Up 2 you might be a little dissapointed.
B-Girl has some real great parts to it but it's at the expense of the rest of the film.
First off let me say this is the finest and best dancing I have yet to see in any dance movie. It really is. Some of the moves and dance scene's you simply have to admire even if you don't like this kind of music and dance (and I don't). However credit where it's due. These dancers are second to none ... and it's here the movie starts to fail. You see the people in this movie are dancers. They're not really actors. The acting is mediocre but the actors/dancers themselves aren't the cool sexy eye candy like in Fame, Step-Up and all the other hollywood 'dancer struggles to overcome past and makes good at the end' type movies. The female lead/dancer is brilliant at dancing but she's nothing to look at. Same for the male dancers. The story is very very weak. The whole production lacks the polished feel of all the previous dance movies. It's as if the producer found the very best dancers they could and then built a movie around it. Technically it fails as well with many flaws like in the begining Julie Ulrich comes off the dance floor and suddenly she's wearing a hat speaking to her friend. She took it off to go dance but the cut as she leaves the dance floor to meet her friend (who was holding her hat) suddenly she's wearing the hat before she gets to her friend. There's lots of things like that. The script is poor too. Julie leaves New York to get away from a killer and moves to LA. As usual she has to prove herself to another group of street kids she wants to hang-out with and when she's asked her name she says "Angel" and the street kid says "Yeah...I heard of you". ????? Really ????
