Time Out says

A vehicle for the astonishing form of 'breaking' in which athletic types perform as if they were having a molar drilled without anesthetic while being simultaneously kneecapped...all to that disco beat. On the athletic level alone it trashes Flashdance into the boards, and the film's three heroes, Dickey, Shabba-Doo and Boogaloo-Shrimp (Oscars all round, just for the names) are all spellbinding; the soundtrack is also a treat, and the storyline, if lame (boy meets girl, sticks two fingers up at the dance establishment, and still wins prestigious audition) is peppered with enough modern motifs to suspend disbelief.
