Editorial Reviews

How She Move is an energetic, gritty and ultimately inspiring coming of age tale about a gifted young woman who defies all the rules as she step dances her heart out to achieve her dreams. Featuring a fresh cast of new discoveries, this Sundance Film Festival hit marks the feature film debut of the electric RUTINA WESLEY, with street-style step sequences by top choreographer Hi Hat and special appearances by R&B singer-songwriter Keyshia Cole and comedian DeRay Davis. Bursting with raw talent and intelligence, Raya Green (WESLEY), the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, has always been the family’s one great hope. She won the rare chance to break out of their drug and crime-infested neighborhood when she was accepted into the exclusive Seaton Academy. But when her sister dies of an overdose, the family is shattered and Raya is forced to return to the place she tried so hard to escape.

Customer Reviews

The movie was good overall but the story line was a little whack.
Adam T. Rice
As noted earlier, the movie achieves some spark when the performers are up on stage dancing, but such moments are far too few and sadly fleeting.
Roland E. Zwick
If anything, the movie should have been titled "Oh No She Di'int" because of the audacity needed to title a movie with such egregious grammar.
Jason

`How She Move' takes many plot steps we've seen before. Reminiscent of some of the dramatic moves taken in films like `Take the Lead,' and `Akeelah and the Bee,' the movie makes quite an impression when the characters are on stage ready to dance.

A second generation Jamaican, Rayanne (Raya) Green (Rutina Wesley) is a child prodigy, ready to go to prestigious colleges after an education at a private high school. The only thing keeping her from the best prospects are her family's finances. She has to drop out and enroll at a public school, where she is now an outsider to her former friend, Michelle (Tre' Armstrong), and her peer group. All the while she and her family are grieving over the loss of her elder sister, Pam, and all the fallout of her deadly drug use.

Trying to keep her head up, Raya is well-rounded. While she is an ace at academics, she is also sharp on the auto shop floor where all her friends gather to stomp out the latest moves. More interested in her romantically, Bishop (Dwain Murphy), who has known her since fifth grade, makes advances, but shuns the prospect of having her in his stomp "crew". Potentially, she must do the balancing act of many talented teenagers: She has to study for her exams, practice her dance moves with the boys, and come up with a way to pay for her tuition. Added to that is the reluctant misery she faces by becoming Michelle's tutor to avoid suspension after a physical fight.

`How She Move' is an enjoyable film experience.

The urban-dance drama, "How She Moves," springs to life only when its high-energy, talented cast members are kicking up their heels and strutting their stuff for the camera. Otherwise, this stale strive-suffer-and-succeed story is low on energy, low on originality, and low on anything that might make the movie stand out from the dozens of other likeminded films that have come before it.

Rutina Wesley has modest appeal as the academically gifted inner-city youngster who finds that the best way for her to raise her private school tuition money is by entering step-dance competitions, but both she and her fellow actors are poorly served by uninspired screenwriting and undistinguished direction. As noted earlier, the movie achieves some spark when the performers are up on stage dancing, but such moments are far too few and sadly fleeting.

When the plot for a movie is basically created by combining Breakin 2 and Honey, there is a near guarantee that it's going to open up a cinema black hole. If not for the superb dancing in this movie, the entire project would be nearly without anything substantial or worthwhile.

Rayanna Green (Rutina Wesley) is not only a good student, but she's also a great dancer who has to earn the respect of the boys in the dance crew. Somehow this group manages to get tons of school time, and the auto-shop facilities to practice their moves, while fulfilling and/or overcoming every cliché in cinema history. Among those clichés is obviously the big dance-off ending with corny DJs, and I can guarantee you can guess the winner. This movie is so unoriginal, I think the makers of Stomp the Yard, Step Up, and Save the Last Dance should look into legal proceedings.

I remember seeing the preview of this movie, thinking it was a bland remake, and writing it off. But when it ended and I saw that the title was "How She Move", I immediately became irritated with the insidious way in which ebonics have crept into acceptability. If anything, the movie should have been titled "Oh No She Di'int" because of the audacity needed to title a movie with such egregious grammar. The dancers and choreography may be nimble, but the acting and plot serve as the two left feet of the drunk uncle who shows up at every family wedding, and ruins whatever positive vibe there may have been amongst those who are having fun and dancing.

How She Move is a very entertaing positive film that focuses on a very intelligent and lovely young black woman, Raya. Raya leaves boarding school and goes back to her home in the projects after her sister dies. From the minute she gets back she's confronted with jealous ex-peers, two bit hustlers and a young man (Bishop) who has romantic feelings for her from back in the day.

Raya sticks to her plans to attend medical school but must overcome obstacles. These obstacles include her old nemesis/friend Michelle and Raya trying to get into Bishop's step crew. Raya's naturally talented in step but Bishop, though he's very attracted to Raya, doesn't want a female on his crew. Raya becomes determined to be on Bishop's crew after realizing she can win fifty thousand dollars at a step competition. She plans to use the money for medical school. Bishop suggests she gets on a girl's crew, namely Michelle's but Raya isn't having it. She doesn't give up and finds help in Bishop's younger brother who teaches her Bishop's routines behind his back.

Bishop finally agrees to let Raya step in his group but his ego gets the best of him when he sees she's easily the best in the crew. From that point on Raya continues to try to prove herself to those around her and ends up learning many valuable lessons. Though she hits roadblocks with Michelle and Bishop, they both help her to see that they need her as much as she needs them.

I was surprised at how good this film was. I enjoyed it because it's not the typical hip-hop movie. This is a film about a woman's journey and that woman just happens to know how to step. I think those that said the film's dances lacked something (which they didn't to me), didn't understand that the movie wasn't about the stepping.
