Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984)

  • Lucinda Dickey
  • Adolfo Quinones
  • Michael Chambers
You have just finished watching Breakin' - and feel like you want to go out onto the streets and find a group of people to dance with, then you realise that your about 20 years too late and the only gangs hanging around your neighbourhood are not interested in dancing.

Your spirits drop, realising that you can never get back your youth...

But then you remember, you also own Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo and you get back on your sofa and spend another couple of hours with a friendly group of Break Dancers who only want to support their local amenities... They don't use violence (apart from perhaps some suggestive popping' and lockin' moves), they don't use guns or drugs and they even get their rival street gang to kiss and make up with them in order to protect their hood from the City Suits.

Where else could you get a story line like that? Take it for what it is - great music, great dancing, great fun!
