Everyone else, this is just potential future home viewing material for a drinking game: take a shot every time a dancer points and oohs at his opponent or Josh Holloway gives a pep talk or when there’s an unnecessary reaction shot featuring Chris Brown).

Battle of the Year is one of the most horrible movies of this year, is like a terrible spin-off of the Step Up saga. This movie has good coreographies, but the rest of the movie (development, screenplay, performances, etc.) is extremely bad.

I don't have anything to say other than the fact that you don't need to see this movie at all! It SUCKS! Be sure to check out my YouTube channel "TheMovieManLife" for all things movies.

Battle of the Year is far from dead, but the movie is killing us in the dance movie genre. I love Josh Holloway from Lost, but who in the hell did they sign him up in the movie? This is a Step Up rip-off. If anybody that could teach incredible moves like this, it would have to be Michael Jackson. Bottom Line: Save it for the Razzies because this film is a dud. Expand

The movie was totally boring from the outset. After the electrifying and seat grabbing screen wonders, Stomp the Yard, Step Up, and especially the latest “wow” Step Up Revolution, Battle of the Year fell flat in expectations. The Battle ofThe movie was totally boring from the outset. After the electrifying and seat grabbing screen wonders, Stomp the Yard, Step Up, and especially the latest “wow” Step Up Revolution, Battle of the Year fell flat in expectations. The Battle of the Year attempted to introduce themes that were over-used and worn about the edges by every upcoming wannabe movie writer.
It was boring and without imagination on the part of the writer. The actors, even Chris Brown who I suspect was mostly used for sale factor, were lacking in acting skills, and the ability to grab and hold the audience. If the intention is to take children to see a great dance movie, save the dough and get Step Up Revolution from Netflix or pay per view. This movie is not worth the ten dollars and the popcorn.

The acting in Battle of the Year was terrible. Nobody acted like an actor. Nobody did a good job acting, which made the movie quite bad. Interesting story, but if they had high-budget actors who can actually act it would be a way better movie.

Battle of the Year was alright. Terrible acting, everyone was just reading their lines right off the script, there wasn't any emotion whatsoever. The story also lagged in creativity, which is why it's a 5.

Really repetitive movie of similar ones, with all the same problems as they had - basically a spin-off of Step Up and similar movies without bringing much new things into the mix.

Also there are some a bit weird dialogues and it feels like the dancing (b-boy stuff) is the most important thing in the world at some points and they exaggerate about everything a bit. The ending was a bit unexpected maybe, but still it wasn't that interesting to watch. Only reason why I gave 4 out of 10 was because it felt like there might be something interesting going on at the beginning and it wasn't like I switched it off completely, plus if you want to see Chris Brown act or really liked LOST (one of the actors plays in the movie), then you might actually see it Expand

Even when a dance movie is following the formula as closely as Battle of the Year does, occasionally something you won't get to see anywhere else slips through.
