POSTERS

Preview: Battlefield America (2012)

Synopsis:

A group of community center kids struggle to step up their street dancing game in an effort to win a coveted dance competition.

  • Poster: D

Review:

Plain, uninspired and poorly designed. There are so many strikes against the poster that having battling kids on the front doesn't make it better.

  • Trailer: D / C- / D / D-

Review:

I'm going to review all four trailers together since they are all equally bad (with the second one being the bright spot among them). The trailers highlight terrible acting, forced excitement and meandering dances to make for a dull-looking film. The only reason the second trailer gets a higher mark is that it doesn't focus much on the acting, just on the exploitation of young dancers for monetary gain.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
