|Sony Pictures Classics | Release Date: June 9, 2000||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Lively, likable and refreshingly unsensationalistic about the drugs and sex that come with the territory, this techno-propelled mash note to the rave spirit sticks to the surface.
If you require fine writing, sharp plotting and consistently good acting, you will be in for a long 86 minutes.
Has a sweetness to it that's irresistible, and its techno, trance and jungle soundtrack is as infectious and hypnotic as a contact high.
Contains too many weak performances and predictable lines to succeed, but it's probably the best rave movie so far.
Its characters and plot are almost wholly negligible. It's just a party.
There's not enough sustained musical momentum to simulate the energy of an actual rave; the characters are likable but unremarkable.
Groove seems to be less about what it is chronicling than what its attempting to decipher.
Unfortunately, it lacks a compelling story or characters of any complexity.
But there's nothing in this amateurish movie that the opening credits of last year's "Go" didn't do better.
