    Ok….

    Ozone can do a few moves – pop locking, but the rest of the crap he does isn’t breakin & what is.. is well repeated through the whole movie!!! He did the SAME dance moves through the whole movie. I’d say he can do like 5 dance moves, nothing on the ground and 99% of it is pop lockin.

    Kelly can’t dance at all! Ignore the solid gold hype, she cant dance! most of the dancing on solid gold was slit moving around and all she has is that flip! The rest is edited to the frame to fake that she is dancing!!!

    * Something was up clearly with Boogaloo Shrimp (Ozone) and Chambers (Turbo) because Turbo stole the first movie.. clearly Ozone thought he was an actor! LOL all those awful dramatic scenes and over acting was well awful! If you watch the second movie Chambers is barely in it and Rarely Dances and 90% of it is Ozone acting with not much dancing by the 2 leads!

    Sure Ozone had a rep back then for being this dancers – but watch the film he repeats the same moves over and over and over again!!! Then other moves arent even breakdancing.

    Creative Editing!

    There’s no reason to watch except for him. His antics during the dance on the beach are better than the everything else in the movie by an enormous margin. Not only that, I think his dancing is superior.

    I have to say, one thing I notice NOW watching the movie again is they had a Gay Character in Breakin!

    I think this is totally great that NONE of the Hip Hop/B-boys didnt bring up or slighty care that "Special K’s" Dance friend was gay! The Black Guy in the Purple dance suit.

    Proof: When he walked into the Club where they were battling Electro Rock, we can clearly see him "check out" one of The Bouncers. He gives him the eye.

    Just a cool thing that wasn’t made fun of or brought up in the story. He was just a guy a friend :)

    Does anyone know the words Ice-T says after "..my man Ozone’s here and you better know he’s always gonna steal the show. You gotta…"

    I’ve watched the movie countless times and I can’t make out the words after gotta. I’d love some help on this one, thanks :)

      Terry Crews himself denied it on his Twitter, he said it couldn’t be him, ’cause he was 15 by this time.

    He mentions his name as the Glove in this (and perhaps the 2nd) movie but oddly in his song. He goes on about his own name ‘Ice T’ through out the first dance off between Turbo/Ozone and that of Electro Rock. I personally think when I first saw this I probably thought he was calling the main guy of the opposite side ‘Ice T’ cuz if u watch and listen that guy is dancing as he is saying some statements about himself (Ice T) that is. Here is a clip

    If there’s ever gonna be a remake of Breakin, who do you think would be Turbo especially in his scene outside the convenience store? Ha :]

    I know this is a petty good, but Im suprised nobody posted the goof about the broom scene. You can clearly see the "invisible" string attached to the broom, when Turbo is making the broom magically move. Regardless that scene is still one of the most classic dance scenes ever!

    Who looks more ridiculous, Jessica or Lucinda, while "Honey" isnt technically a breakdancer, hey neither is Lucinda. While, Lucinda’s weak-ass "ballet" inspired moves dont really mesh with Turbo and Ozones fairly weak-ass breakdancing, it’s laughable that any one would pay "Honey" to teach any sort of dancing, dance herself or choreograph any dancing, she has like 3 moves. So the winner is Lucinda Dickey by default.

    This movie is a classic, it’s completely underated in my opinion. We need to send this movie out into space so aliens can find it and understand how fresh we are.

    Favorite Scene:

    basically anything with Electro ROCK in it, i know they were the bad guys but there moves were so ultra sick i found it hard to hate em, and especially during the first battle when they bust out the girl and they all start pop-locking. Totally bad!

    Whats your Favorite Scene???

    In the last audition scene when Ozone screams out his name and "There’s No Stopping Us" plays I always wondered who was playing the music. I mean at first it seemed like it was one of those times where the music is only for the audience but then that would mean in the movie they’re actually dancing to nothing. Then again maybe the sound guy at audition hated Franco/the judges and decided to rebel. Don’t get me wrong I know it was probably just the film crew playing the music when they thought it would work best all whi;e not giving a damn about explaining it. But I just wished they had shown like the manager slipping the sound guy some money or something. I love this horrible movie but that honestly always pisses me off when I watch it.

    Hi, all.

    Since exoticasian has several answers, I’m hoping he or she will have one for me. I’m directing the question(s) to exoticasian, but I’d appreciate anyone’s reply with the answer(s).

    exoticasian:

    There’s a Jazz instrumental song playing while Kelly and other girls are dancing during an audition. I remember Kelly doing a sort of one-leg stationary flip and lands in a sitting position at the end (I think). I also think the song is from Breakin’ 2. I keep wondering if the artist is George Benson or George Howard. I know G. Benson usually does some singing in most of his songs. Great Jazz guitarist! Sorry…just had a moment there.

    I’ve wanted to get a copy of the song for years, but it’s pretty hard to request it on the radio, buy it in a store or online without a title.

    Thanks in advance.

    Most of the studio productions and well known docs are listed in posts.

    But for fans of this film, i would strongly suggest.

    ‘Breakin n enterin’

    Can be found on youtube but other than that, good luck. Let me know if anyone finds a downloadable source.

    Basically a west coast documentary feat most of the cast later brought into the breakin movies.

    Perhaps the earliest footage of ice T in his radio city breakdance crew days. Chris the glove taylor and egyptian lover holding down the electro sounds. Various other crews. This one is a gem.

    Beyond that there are loads of you tube vids on the old school. Anyone got any reccomendations, post them back here.

    The Awesome Foursome ~ Boogaloo Shrimp, Shabba Doo, Ana " Lollipop " Sanchez, and Bruno " Pop N’ Taco " Falcon

    I was on Adolfo (Shabba Doo) page regarding the influence he had on this movie and the 2nd one. My question had to do with his involvement in Chaka Khans video ‘I Feel For you’ which not only showcased him but that of his other 3 buds. They also appeared in Lionel Richies ‘All Night Long’ which Adolfo choregraphed.

    I questioned on his page that if they all got to be in Breakin 1 just because of their connection with one another. Seemed too easy that all four got major roles in that movie. Adolfo and Boogaloo against Bruno and Ana.

    Ironically by time Breakin 2 came out they (the producers/or writers) wanted to get a more spin on it by casting a new dancer (more trained in ballet/etc) as the new Electro Rock leader still keeping Ana (adolfo friend and the bad girl) along with Susie Bono (not known as a dancer but great actress). Which tells me at least for Breakin 2 they really went through an audicion process to make sure they had good actors and dancers. Sadly by doing that basically cut Ana’s part down along with Bruno Falcon (who by then was pushed into the back of being a member of TKOs crew).

    Cmon guys! Let’s be honest with ourselves here. Yes, the movie is from 1984,

    so that puts it into the "classic 80’s" category. But EVEN by the standards of

    classic 80’s this movie is hokey. The facial expressions, the "tough guy" acting,

    and finally a guy who can dance with crutches and helicopter his legs at an angle

    greater than 180 degrees. This movie is perfect for a comedy night.

    By the way, just imagine if everybody who danced in the entire world had the facial expression that helicopter legs had when he was dancing. "Now that’s real dancing!"

    Hey everyone

    Just seen Breakin’ 1 and 2 – love it!

    Just curious if anyone knows the title/author of the track that is playing when Turbo is teaching the kids how to break in front of the garage, just before Kelly arrives? I couldn’t find it on the sound track.

    Thanks in advance :)

    He’s dancing when Kelly and Adam first pull up to see Ozone and Turbo, wearing yellow shorts, navy top and sunglasses depending on the continuity. Then he can’t believe Ozone’s being dissed by Electro Rock, so he puts his hand on his chest wearing an outraged expression, then to his chin to shake his head. My family always fall around laughing at this, as he’s a dead ringer for my husband at that age! I would love to track him down to see what he’s doing now, or at least see if he still looks like my husband’s twin!

    I am producing a very small run of shirts of the Breakdance movie, mainly cuz I want one that’s professional and not just a transfer job.

    If anyone else wants one, head over to http://www.stylewarrior.co.uk to see the shirt.

    The shirt costs £20 with free worldwide delivery.

    I am taking pre-orders until Saturday 5th March 2008 and after that date they will be in very limited supply (I will print less than 50 shirts).

    Cheers!
