Editorial Reviews

Includes SRM Free Digital Download

In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing. From the producers of Paranormal Activity and featuring narration by James Remar (The Warriors), THE FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphant montages and neon street wear that Moviefone calls "a rare ready-made cult hit."

Customer Reviews

The FP is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.
E. Luna
It reminded me a lot of Airplane where everyone in the movie stays completely straight faced the entire time even as they say hilarious things.
TR
The FP evokes, very strongly and deliberately, the kind of shabby direct-to-video post-apocalypse films that saw a meteoric rise in the 80s.

When Albert Camus wrote of the absurdity of man, he could never have fathomed the FP. This is the most wonderfully absurb movie I have ever seen. If you attempt to take it seriously, you will hate it. If you are capable of taking it seriously, seek professional help. The plot surrounds a young man, JTRO, who lives in a semi-post-apocolyptic (or merely post-recession?) northern California town, Frazier Park (aka "the FP"). There, rival gangs must compete in "Beat Beat Revelation" (aka "Dance-Dance-Revolution") for their street cred. After the death of his brother, JTRO leaves the FP and seeks employment in the logging industry, because "Logs is chill". When the heir to the only liquor store in town brokers alchohol to only those who will comply with his gang's demands, JTRO must return in the name of justice to set things right. So be Never Ignorant and Get Goals accomplished, settle in with a spaghetti-O and waffle sandwich, and watch "The FP". Turn on the subtitles - the spelling of the dialog is half the the fun. Dayum!

This movie is awe inspiringly awful in the best possible way. I can't recommend it highly enough for anyone who sees the humor in a bad flick.

I am literally going to buy this for people and write a note: "You're welcome -M" on it.

There's heavy slang, DDR to the death, epic montages of unepic things, excessive swearing, random nudity. Oh god this is fantastically redic. Can't recommend it enough.

This is a great movie. I laughed my butt off the entire time I watched it. I was lucky enough to see it in theaters and quickly purchased it when it became available. It is sort of like a The Warriors meets Rocky with moon boots! The acting is pretty good and they stay in character which I might find difficult to do in a movie such as this. I love how it looks on Blu Ray the colors are nice are sharp and did not see any issues w it. The soundtrack is also pretty good I believe the composer is George Holdcraft. The recently announced they are making it into a trilogy so there is that to be excited for.

In short this was a great movie and will long have an honored place in my collection.

While it can't be anymore hilarious then the first time you see the trailer, surprisingly the full length feature film manages to stay consistently amusing for nearly the full duration. Don't get me wrong this is played straight hardcore B-rate cheese, of quite possibly the finest caliber I've seen in a long time. Highly recommended to people who like campy movies.

Contains adult language, drug usage, inappropriate sexual situations, and a random boob shot.

Note: Not recommended to get for your kids who like DDR. This is an adult film ages 14+.

When I first saw the trailer for THE FP and learned what it was about I could only do one thing. I laughed. Hard and loud. Are you for real? A post apocalyptic film where gangs fought one another for possession of turf by...dance dance revolution?

Much of THE FP seems like something that would come out of a Troma film. That's a compliment, not an insult. The production values are low budget but you can't really tell because the film looks that good. There is little to no money coming along to rescue this film so it all depends on the effort made by those involved. That effort is tremendous.

As I said, the film takes place in what appears to be the near future, a world where everyone seems to do little more than get drunk and celebrate their heroes, those who face off in dance dance revolution. If you don't know what ddr is it's the game where to contestants stand on a platform made of squares and must imitate the patterns appearing on the screen making dance moves in the process.

The main hero is Btro, a player who has yet to be beaten. His brother Jtro (Jason Trost) is also a competitor but not near the player Btro is. On a fateful night, Btro is facing L Dubba E, the winner taking control of the FP (short for Frazier Park where the film takes place). During the competition Btro has a heart attack and Jtro swears to never ddr again.

A year later and we find Jtro working a road crew. His friend KCDC comes to him and tells him they need his help. L Dubba E has taken control of the liquor store and now the drunks are limited to meth instead of getting drunk. KCDC pleads his case to Jtro telling him the drunks no longer feed the ducks in the local lake. "Do you know what it's like to have a lake with no ducks?" he screams?

There are times when a movie is so absurd, so ridiculous, and so over the top that you can't help but enjoy it. The movies that never take themselves too seriously yet at the same time are the perfect mix of campy cheesiness and straight shooting acting; the ones that may have initially bombed at the box office, but have gained a cult following since its release on Blu-ray, DVD, or even VHS. Full length features that may be seen as a failure in the eyes of reception and criticism, but you are a huge fan of; no matter if that's a closet fan, a shy one, or one that screams their admiration of said feature from the heavens. "The FP" fully embraces all of that and never tries to be something it's not, which is perhaps one of the reasons it's as good as it is.

It takes a few minutes for this ludicrous concept to really sink in. A gang war centered on Dance Dance Revolution; that's basically what you're looking at here. Once you're able to accept that that is actually happening; the movie is a hell of a lot of fun. The movie is driven by its endless amount of references to 80s movies and its insane dialogue. Aside from Art Hsu, these are some of the whitest guys you've ever come across and yet they speak some of the most ghetto, street dialect you've ever heard.

Most of the stuff said in the film can't be repeated here. The F word is used over 250 times, but that only helps add to the humor of the movie. When KCDC first pulls JTRO back to The FP, he gives him the most ridiculous pep talk in the world: drunks have turned to meth in his absence because L Dubba E now controls all the alcohol in town. No drunks means no bums and no bums means that no one will feed the ducks down at the park. A town without ducks is nothing.
