| The hero is dumb as door knobs
And the bad guys are comical at best.

And the girl who is stuck in between the two, just wish everyone could get along,and her poor poor dad to get healthy again.

The so called fight, dancing is just unintended comical. The dialogue cartoonish and naive.Even when faced with serious threats

I wish I could tell you about a the story line,but there really is none. The Hero, who people mostly refer to as T, lives on a rooftop as an orphan and loves his tomato plants. at night he participate in something they call dancing or combat dancing.Were they shadow box at each other until one of them fall of a stage,and have lost.

I have the impression every male in the movie, is an orphan of sort, and every girl ,is from a broken or struggling home. The biggest threat they face is a slick drug dealer and his 3 goons. Which no one seem to have the balls,to just take em out.

So in best 80s style, the good guy will have to run from the dealer until he is finally forced to take the a stand.(which is what he should have done in the first place.Which would have saved him a lot of grief)
