Battle of the Year Details


A veteran basketball coach whips a talented American breakdancing troupe into shape for the biggest b-boy competition in the world in this kinetic dance drama starring 's Josh Holloway. For breakdancers, winning the Battle of the Year is like taking the gold medal in the Olympics. Though the competition originated in the U.S., no American has taken the top prize in the past 15 years. A former b-boy with his eyes on the prize, L.A. hip-hop icon Dante (Laz Alonso) is determined to change that. But it's not going to be easy. In order to get the job done, Dante recruits his old friend Blake (Holloway) to help form a b-boy troupe comprised of the best dancers in the country. Having previously coached a basketball team to victory before falling on hard times, Blake knows a thing or two about winning. But with the competition just three weeks away, they'll need a small miracle to reclaim the Battle of the Year for their country. Undaunted, Dante and Blake prepare to dazzle the judges with the kind of moves that will prove b-boy culture is still alive and kicking in the country where it was born. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
