Rundown by Josh Tyler
Everyone deserves a chance to follow their dreams, but some people only get one shot. Tyler Gage (CHANNING TATUM) is a rebel from the wrong side of Baltimore’s tracks – and the only thing that stands between him and an unfulfilled life are his dreams of one day making it out of there. Nora (JENNA DEWAN) is a privileged ballet dancer attending Baltimore’s ultra-elite Maryland School of the Arts -- and the only thing standing in the way of her obviously brilliant future is finding a great dance partner for her senior showcase. When trouble with the law lands Tyler with a community service gig at Maryland School of the Arts, he arrives as an angry outsider, until his skills as a gifted street dancer draw Nora’s attention. Now, as sparks fly between them, both on and off stage, Tyler realizes he has just one performance to prove that he can step up to a life far larger than he ever imagined. Featuring the directorial debut of leading choreographer Anne Fletcher, the film also stars R&B superstar Mario, Drew Sidora as well as rap legend Heavy D, Damaine Radcliff, De'Shawn Washington and Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Rachel Griffiths.
Given the remarks being made about Channing Tatum in our comments section, this movie is bound to be a hit with pre-pubescent girls everywhere. It's nice to see Jenna Dewan rapidly moving out of the horror genre, but wasn't this movie already made a few years ago as Save the Last Dance?
