Ok movie, but not that great. A bit dissapointing

The dancing is great, but there are a lot of talk of drugs. :/ This movie was how Robert Hoffman (step up 2) became famous.

Primarily Appropriate for Kids

This movie was NOT one that I had to worry about shielding my eyes or covering my ears due to super strong language and inappropriate scenes. Profanity is used but it is not too harsh (the d-word, the a-word and the h-word are the only ones used frequently. There is one instance of "BS" and h*e.) There are only two slightly-inappropriate sections, and those are merely five second kissing clips. The most inappropriate element of the film is the constant involvement of drugs. The two main characters work for a big-time drug dealer, though they never discuss the type of drugs deeply, or show any form of drug use. There is also a small, violent scene and many, small instances of shoving. (SPOILER ALERT- SKIP THIS SENTENCE IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS.) One extremely young character in the movie is shot and killed off-camera. (SPOILERS DONE.) The film is primarily appropriate for children, and I would say any kids ages eleven and up can view the motion picture comfortably.

Impressive Choreography Backed With A Jaded Plot - Shivom Oza

Firstly, ‘StreetDance 2’ has nothing to do with its predecessor ‘StreetDance’ (2010), so you need not watch the first film to figure out the story. The only common elements, besides dance, being the ‘Britian’s Got Talent’ stars Flawless and George Sampson! This film is about your run-of-the-mill street dancer Ash (Falk Hentschel) who along with his newfound friend and manager Eddie(George Sampson) set out to gather the best street dancers from Europe to beat the world’s best dance crew ‘Invincibles’ at an event in Paris. They even rope in a salsa dancer Eva (Sofia Boutella) to conceive an alternate dance form, a fusion of street dance with the Latin variety. The story is of course, peppered with innumerable dance sequences, some of them exquisitely shot by the brilliant Sam McCurdy, a clichéd romantic track and that customary twist at the end. The dance sequences, especially the ones featuring Sofia Boutella displaying her salsa moves are impeccable performed, and the credit for that should go to the directorial duo at the helm, Max Giwa and Diana Pasquini. Falk Hentschel does a decent job in the dancing department, however leaves a lot to be desired in the acting. George Sampson, who had also featured in the first film of the franchise, does an impressive job. You also have the veteran actor Tom Conti, who plays Eva’s uncle in the film. He charms the viewers with his witty one-liners, histrionics with a tinge of subtlety and yes, even shows-off dance moves of his own. Overall, the performances were decent. Sofia Boutella looks stunning, dances amazingly and does her acting bit fine too. You may hear a lot more of her in time to come. As far as the plot goes, there is nothing that you haven’t seen before. Films about a bunch of underdogs taking on the much-touted dance-troupe, a David v/s Goliath, if you may, have been done to death. However, the makers could have done so much more. The story is far too predictable, and even the minor twist at the end fails to make the film intriguing enough. The editing (Tim Murrell) saves the day, keeping the film short and concise. The music too, offered an eclectic mix, considering the film was not just about street dance but its fusion with the Latin form. Kudos to the choreographers Rich & Tone Talauega for Hip-hop sections and Maykel Fonts for Latin sections, for offering something different from the usual fare! The 3-D is disappointing, so if you do watch this film, watch it in 2-D. The film is strictly a one-time watch. I’d give it 2.5 stars! Shivom Oza

13 and up.

You Got Served is a awesome dancing drama hip-hop movie but parents you need to know that You Got Served has some mild violence some strong language used and some drugs involved with a drug dealer there's a little message about being Strong, loyal, and capable.
