1) Break dancing gets very tiresome after a while.

To call the plot contrived and the actors not being able to act is like calling a duck a duck.

The story is so standard and formulaic there is almost no need to worry about what the hell is going on except for another boogaloo around the corner.

It features the worst clothing, highly infectious and repetitive music (while not bad at first, it makes your brain melt a bit after a while) and the most inane qualities in a film of the era.

Few movies are as bizarre, yet oddly compelling at the same time.

"Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo" is a film with very, very little plot.

Yeah the film is predictable, poorly acted, & the clothes....

Ozone's rooftop number and Turbo's dancing on the ceiling are very enjoyable.

It's predictable stuff, all the people who are against the music are depicted as rich, stiff boring people, whilst at the other end of the spectrum, this film shows you that you don't have to work, just dance and all your problems will go away.

Incredibly predictable tale of breakdancers stickin' it to The Man whilst putting on a show and impressing all the straights with their guts and determination.

The dancing, while not as riveting as it's predecessor, is enjoyable.

But above all, it's entertaining.

I'd much rather spend a night watching it than some pretentious Hollywood garbage like Armegeddon.

I agree, it was entertaining as an unintentional comedy.

It makes for a very entertaining 1h30m, and it's a movie that you can watch over & over again.
