BREAKIN' is quite simply the best dance movie to come out of the wonderous 1980's. It was released in cinemas in 1984 and starred Lucinda Dickey(NINJA III: THE DOMINATION)as a classical dance student who quickly bores of her mundane classes and the seedy attempts by her dance teacher (Ben Lokey) to seduce her. One day her friend from dance class Phineas Newborn III introduces her to the local breakdancing scene held on venice beach. Kelly befriends Ozone and Turbo the two master street dancers on the scene, who after being defeated by a rival gang, the Electro Rocks, teach Kelly how to breakdance. The trio then take the rival gang on and win. Meanwhile Kelly also has had many dissapointing dance auditions via her talent agent James played by Christopher McDonald. When Kelly tells James she wants her two breakdancing friends to enter for a big time audition with her, he is dubious and so is the entire dance world. But all this aside, the body popping trio over ride the system and get into the audition and end up in a really big dance show. BREAKIN' like Flasdance (1983) is pretty much the same story but with a much more light hearted feel to it. Flashdance is drama. BREAKIN'is a feel good movie which the whole family can watch. It's also a terrific part of the 80's. BREAKIN' in europe is titled Breakdance and sometimes Breakdance The Movie.

lucinda dickey(kelly k),adolfo quinones(ozone).michael"boogaloo shrimp"chambers(turbo)
head the cast in this vibrant,colourfull dance movie.
The music includes ice-t,the barkays,ollie & jerry george kranz and even kraftwerk.
This movie is funky & fun and contains some of the best breakin moves still copied to this day!.
Coupled with great performances from ben lokey,lucinda dickey and chistopher macdonald make this one of my all time fav films.
The movie must have been quite a gamble at the time of its making but one which in my opinon,paid off.
If breakin was never your thing don't simply dismiss this film give it a try,i guarantee you will leave it with a smile on your face.

In 1984, I was ten years old and I first watched this movie with my eyes bulging out of my head. In fact, looking back, 'Breakdance the Movie' (or 'Breakin', as it was known in the U.S) changed my life. Before this film, my record collection consisted of a few 'Musical Youth' seven inches and a couple of Michael Jackson albums. After watching this film, I started collecting electro records, hip hop albums and began to roll around our school dinner hall like a fool.
The film itself is terribly acted, has a dreadful script and is shot with the same artful grace as an episode of 'Falcon Crest'. There are shocking continuity errors which just emphasises that the film was rushed out and packaged up to capitalise on the popularity of breakdancing during the early eighties. During the first 'battle' scene between 'Ozone'/'Turbo and 'Electro Rock', watch how a scowling member of the crowd (dude with huge afro) appears to magically appear in nearly every shot. The character, 'Kelly' (played by Lucinda Dickey, who you may now find shuffling around L.A pushing a supermarket trolley full of aluminium cans)is quite frankly, an embarrassment to the acting profession.
However, the importance of this film is the huge cultural impact it had on the many young people around the world who were fortunate to see it. Technically, this movie is about as bad as they come but I paid for a copy on DVD, as I will eternally be grateful to it because, like I said before, it changed my life.

Breakdance has been a personal favourite of mine for a long time now. It is by far the most impressive film of its time and it itroduced the world to a whole new craze, street dancing.
The film tells the tale of a jazz dancer who meets two breakdancers and set out to find fame with a big dance audition.
The film is rich with superb dance scenes and a pulsating hip hop/dance soundtrack which i remember made it to number 1 in the charts. The dvd is pretty cool, it has a handful of bios and interesting stuff about breakdancing and the hip hop world.
If you have not yet seen this film and you love 80s cult classics, i suggest you pick it up. I thought i would never see it again until i came across it on Amazon.co.uk so thanks to them i know have one of my fave movies on dvd. A solid 5 star rating for the movie and to Amazon too.

As a fromer b boy and hip hop fanatic, i am stoked to find BREAKDANCE THE MOVIE after all this time. I had it recorded of the tv, about 15 years ago and lost it through time, and nobody had any idea of what i was talking about when i was searching for a copy, until i hit the 'find' button on my pc........now im in breaking heaven once more. Listen to me cats, if you aint seen this movie, you have to.........believe me, this movie has it all, music, moves and a deep story to tell...........and OMG, you have to check out Turbo and his fantazia styly scene in this. A real 'tour de force'

Breakdance is quite possibly the most definitive dance movie of the 1980s. It captured street dancing on film for the very first time while mixing it cleverly with an upbeat family entertainment value making not only a great dance movie but a beautifuly told fairy tale fantasy. Lucinda Dickey made her second major starring role with this box office hit. Her prior film was Ninja 3:The Domination also produced by MGM. Adolfo Quinones and Michael Chambers provide the sleek zezt of the street including, popping and waving while Lucinda adds in her fantastic classical dance and gymnastic routines. Breakdance was a very low budget film that went on to become the film that would start the breaking craze across the globe. Ever since the movie hit Cinemas in the summer of 1984, people were suddenly learning the moves and displaying on the city streets everywhere on the globe. It is a classic that everyone should own, specially if you love the 80s.
