Battle of the Year 3D Review | Geekenstein

"B-Boying, or breakdancing if you’re not up on your hip hop jargon, is apparently still a thing. Yes, even though the general populace lost interest with men spinning on pieces of cardboard in subway stations somewhere in the early 1990s, these men continued to spin on ever more intricate pieces of cardboard, eventually trading in their boomboxes for jumpsuits and their street cred for corporate donations in order to put on the Battle of the Year, a real global event that takes place every year to determine the best dance crew in the world. You’d be excused for not knowing this going into, or even coming out of, Battle of the Year 3D, which treats its subject matter with the same self seriousness of such landmark “sports” movies as The Wizard and Over The Top. Sadly, unlike those two examples, the ridiculous of the film’s premise is not cashed in on, and we’re left with a retread of well worn cliches that is sure to please almost no one." - Alex Santa Maria of Geekenstein (Battle Of The Year, Cinema) 0.5/5
