“MAKE YOUR MOVE” Movie Review. A Re-imagining of WESTSIDE STORY Musical with Awesome Touches of DIRTY DANCING.
“MAKE YOUR MOVE” PRESS PREVIEW
“MAKE YOUR MOVE” might fit the bill if you are thinking of a pretty-good movie to bring your loved one for a romantic romp, but it’s really crafted for a young and trendy crowd.
Nonetheless, you can still clap your hands and stomp your feet …..
MOVE to the rhythm,
DANCE to the beat ……
And ROCK THE BOAT.
This is a musical movie destined to steal your breath away.
It’s oozing with loads of oh-la-la dancey energy here, in ‘MAKE YOUR MOVE”, with the leads DEREK HOUGH (BALL ROOM CHAMPION from UTAH) and BoA (KOREAN POP SINGER) taking center stage to ignite the sexy slick moves.
So strap on, stay braced as you watch the two animals grinding and pawing each other in heat.
“MAKE YOUR MOVE” peremptorily breezes you through some spectacular dance numbers in a Romeo and Juliet style musical directed by DUANE ADLER.
The dancing parts by the leads are awesome. You can observe the passion for dancing in their eyes and steps. The moments they dance together you see their bodies grinding with sexual joy and passion.
The movie comes alive when the screen characters burst into dance.
The star crossed lovers whirl you through a sordid background of New York gangs who run the city’s hottest underground nightclubs.
Our hero is DONNY (DEREK HOUGH) a New Orleans tap dancer who has just been released from prison where he served his term for getting involved in a street scam.
AYA (BoA) is an ethnic Korean born in Japan; her US visa is on the point of expiring,
They both meet under unexpected circumstances, but both suddenly feel they have the hots for each other.
I am nether a fan of ballroom dancing or K-Pop, but this movie certainly brings you closer to some of the best choreographed numbers, as in this case, it’s tap, hip hop, tango and trapeze. Not forgetting performing the drum-as-you-dance sequence.
“MAKE YOUR MOVE’ is in part, a re-imagining of THE WEST SIDE STORY” Musical with awesome touches of DIRTY DANCING. I was expecting some silly garbage, but heavens no, this one is really good.
