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.

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

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

1) Break dancing gets very tiresome after a while.

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

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

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.

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.

But above all, it's entertaining.

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

I agree, it was entertaining as an unintentional comedy.

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

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

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.

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