B-Girl

Although there's been quite a few dance movies of late, B-Girl is actually a different kettle of fish or dance style and from the very first moments, you immediately know that you'll be in for an impressive dance treat.

The story revolves around a powerful young woman called Angel (Jules, 'Lady Jules' Urich) who is quite passionate about music and more specifically dance. If she sounds familiar, that's because she also starred in STEP UP 2 and YOU GOT SERVED but best of all, she really knows how to move her body.

Unlike the aforementioned movies, B-Girl is a slightly darker dance film that contains heavy elements of drama and even a touch of social commentary. Although Angel doesn't have the perfect life, it almost comes to end when her boyfriend Hector leaves her fighting for her life and her best friend dead.

After this brutal and shocking attack, Angel has become disempowered and seeks shelter and comfort back in Los Angeles with her mother. Estranged from her community, her family suggests she makes an attempt to go out and try to rebuild her life which leads her to a Church group.

Obviously this is not the crew for Angel, however at this church, there is a dance group practicing for an upcoming event. Hearing the call of dance again, she meets Carlos (Wesley Jonathan), a former dancer and together they strike up a relationship and the empowerment that Angel needs again to rebuild her life.

Although the story is your traditional underdog tale and redemption, seeing these wonderful dances move with such an engaging story is actually quite a blissful experience and with a touch more adult content, B-Girl is definitely not your average dance film.

Definitely something to watch on a Saturday with some great special features from amusing bloopers to behind the scenes. Add in almost perfect video and audio quality on DVD and B-Girl is a quite a professional feat.
