Editorial Reviews

Go For It!, the Audience Award winner and an official selection of the 2010 Chicago International Film Festival is an inspirational dance (hip-hop) drama. Carmen is 19 year old student who is trying to find her identity, raised in the inner-city of Chicago. She spends most of her time in underground clubs enthralled with her true passion in life, dance. She proves herself to the tough streets of Chicago as she follows her own beat. Born a first generation Mexican-American she is faced with what her parents expect and what her heart is demanding. Afraid to believe in herself Carmen is put to the test, when she is challenged by her professor to audition for a formal dance school in California. She is torn between a chaotic family, love interest and her best friend's abusive relationship. Can Carmen overcome life’s obstacles and take the biggest chance of her life or will she fall victim to self-sabotage? The filmmaker created Go For It! inspired by her experiences as a street dancer growing up in Chicago and hopes to inspire urban youth to believe in their inner-strength and follow their dreams.

Customer Reviews

Typical story line, too predictable.
Mikki
By the final dance scene, I'd had enough and was hoping the protagonist would fall and break her ankle or something.
kiki
In fact, we know how bad she really is by the judges asks her if she gots what it takes and she didn't say a thing.

"Go For It" is your stereotypical, hip-hop dance movie. I have to admit, however cliche they may be, I tend to love these kinds of movies. However, this one just fell flat for me. Although the plot was the same as any other (girl loves to dance, girl falls for boy, girl has to overcome some huge obstacle to succeed), this movie didn't do it quite as well as others. It wasn't the acting or camerawork that I had a problem with: It was our so-called protagonist.

It is rare that you encounter such a pessimistic, annoying, selfish character. She acted superior to everyone in her family, and said terrible, judgmental things to her parents. I thought it hypocritical for her to judge her family for not being educated or successful when clearly she was on the EXACT same path herself. It was almost if she expected to get out of her parents' house and make it big, not by hard work or determination, but simply because she thought that the world owed it to her. She had a family who loved her, and time after time she completely disregarded their feelings because she couldn't be bothered to care.

Another issue that I had a problem with was the fact that the audience didn't really understand why her teacher took such an interest in her. She was rude and had a bad attitude. This teacher supported her, encouraged her to be something, and helped her apply into a dance school; all she did was complain and talk about how she didn't have time for this and didn't feel like doing that. (I don't see why not. The audience watched as she quit doing much of anything). She was completely unappreciative of the hard work her teacher put in for her, and was more than prepared to throw away a golden opportunity for NO reason whatsoever.

I love Aimee Garcia, but it's hard to root for people so filled with anger and hostility. The dance scenes weren't shot very well, too much cutting and closeups. I like to see movement with a group, not bad angles and fast cutting. Aimee's great, but they need to put her in more things that bring out her pleasant persona.

It was ok, depending on your movie preferences. Not as good as any of the Step Up movies were, but not terrible.

Delivery took a little while, disc was in great condition, but when I watched it it was not what I expected. Its a drama film, portraying the difficulties in life for Latino's with a girl with a dream (and a bad attitude). It was an okay movie.

Contrary to many of the other reviewers, I thought this movie was better than most dance movies. I don't think there was quite as much dancing as in Step Up or You Got Served (but there was more than in Save the Last Dance), but the characters were much more believable and the story was better. I liked that the characters had flaws, and that in the end the girl didn't get the boy and not everyone got to live happily ever after. It was a nice change from the typical story of the great guy from a poor family who works really hard and is talented and wins the big contest to get the prize money that makes their life complete.

Good movie, with a good story line, I did not like the ending as it feels like it was incomplete.
