I saw this in New York when it played theatrically. I was skeptical at first that this wouldn't be anything more than a highlight reel but I quickly found out that's not true. Planet B-Boy delves into the subculture of b-boying (breakdancing) and shows that it's not only a hobby, it's a lifestyle. It follows crews from all over the world who are brought together by the love of expression by means of "B-Boying" and ultimately to the "World Series" of B-boying, "The Battle of the Year" which is an International competition featuring the best dance crews in the world. It is absolutely amazing to see these people defy the laws of gravity and do the physically impossible.

I saw this movie in the theaters when it was making its US tour. It was really really awesome. It wasn't just about b-boying but also about the guys and their stories. But of course, the dancing is insanity and a must-watch.

Oh... the American crew in the movie (Knucklehead Zoo) has some members that are also in Super Crew- winners of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew Season 2.

I first saw Planet B-Boy in the theater when it came to L.A., on its first day. My son breakdances, it came out shortly after Step Up 2, and I thought it seemed like an indie film worth supporting. It was so much more. For people who are really into this, the heart of the dancers on the teams is completely inspiring. So are their moves. So is the worldwide influence of what started as streetdancing in the U.S. The archival footage is great as well.

The physicality of the moves in this movie really is like being taken to school. The different flavors and styles of the teams provoke all kinds of choreography thoughts. The music is fantastic, and it all comes together. As soon as I knew it was out on DVD, I bought one copy for myself and one copy for a hiphop/rap/breakdancing fan at work. This movie has so much love of dance. If you have a heart for this kind of expression, you'll feel it too.

The story behind break dancing, told through stories of multiple dynamic personalities. Great routines, good beats, and a positive message make it a definitive winner. It'll keep you engrossed from beginning to end.

This is an awsome documentary, shows a world-wide competition, gives you insight into the universality of Hip-Hop and the freedom of this creative dance expression. I love it. Very scholarly, but not "academic." How can you not appreciate Hip-Hop!

I was not a hip hop B-Boy fan, I happened to watch this one day and really liked it A well produced and directed special on the world B-Boy championships and the story and journey of the different country's contestants to the final battle to be world champions. well done.

I normally do not buy DVDs, let alone write a review, but after watching this documentary I had to buy it just to show support for the director and bboying.

I read the product details and was expecting a bare-bones DVD but was pleasantly surprised with a 30 minute bonus feature "More On bboying" that goes even more in-depth into the history of bboying (i.e. Rocksteady Crew, "Flash Dance", and the European evolution of breakin). The bonus feature alone is worth the purchase of this DVD.
