The gang wars and violence of the ’60’s have given way to the hip-hop culture. No longer do warlords and their gangs roam the streets possessively guarding their territory. But rather, break dancers, rappers, DJs, and graffiti artists have expanded their territory and goals beyond immediate physical borders.
It should be noted this film was shot in the birthplace of breakdancing (“This ain’t New York, this is the Bronx!”), and features appearances by the fathers of breakdancing, dance troupe Rock Steady Crew and rapper Afrika Bambaata. Rock Steady Crew provide the best scene in the film when they dominate a dance battle at the premiere breakdancing club of the early 80’s, the Roxy. A must see for hip-hop lovers.
