Grammar aside, this is one film that will turn up the volume, get the blood pumping and make you want to get up and dance. Ok, not really but it does have some decent music. Raya is an aspiring medial student whose world comes crashing down where her sister dies and she must come home and struggle to make ends meet. In order to make enough money to get the tuition she needs, Raya enters the stepping world of dance and joins one of the top crews to prove to everyone, including herself, who she really is in life.

I’ve always said it. If you’ve seen once dance movie, you’ve seen them all. How She Move is really no different than the rest. You have some person, most always an outcast in the world he or she lives in, who joins the dance scene in order to prove something to someone. But really, who watches these films for their story? It’s all about the crazy dance moves and the music and this one is able to deliver. The quick and rhythmic beats are enjoyable to watch and the massive dance battle at the end is a sight to see (look out for the contortionist).

There are a good amount of special features as well. You have an in depth look at many of the characters as well as their respective actors. There is also a behind the dance feature which looks at the transition from rehearsal to the big screen. I think that whether you pick this one up or not, you won’t regret your decision. It’s really only the dance scenes you want to see and you aren’t missing much if you pass it up.
