Battle of the Year (2013)
Critic Consensus: With a hopelessly hokey plot and unintentionally hilarious dialogue, Battle of the Year is flimsy even by the standards of the dance movie genre.

Critic Reviews for Battle of the Year
The young dancers' undeniable skill and athleticism is squandered in this formulaic, overly familiar dance movie.
In particular, as mentioned, the dance sequences are a mess, which is the kiss of death for a film in this genre.
its dramatization of a U.S. dream team's journey to the international showcase is leaden with predictable character types and storytelling clichés, neither of which its well-executed but oddly infrequent dance sequences are able to overcome.
The bar for urban-flavoured dance movies has already been set pretty low, but Battle Of The Year effortlessly leans back and limbos on below it.
The actual dancing scenes are occasionally electrifying, if far too sparse, but other than that and the welcome sight of co-star Chris Brown getting clocked in the face, the film barely gets off the ground, much less sticks the landing.
