Classic Underdog Story with 'Refreshments'!!! (by mariana-dineva14)
This was a surprisingly interesting movie with beautiful dancing and music playing, which music playing I have been solely missing in other such movies. It is the classic underdog story but with new and fresh moments. The violin was amazing and the movie's ballet-oriented dancing delightful and strong. Of course the boy-meets-girl-and-they-fall-in-love cliché was present but no major "tragedy" between the main leads was portrayed right before 'the decisive moment', and that was both refreshing and much appreciated. Additionally, there was no big drama around joining <more>
the competition and the crew did not fight.The final dance was astonishing, so beautiful for both the eyes and the ears, I was at a loss of words!!!
Ballet dancer Ruby and hip-hop violinist Johnny cross each other's lives by accident which leads to dramatic series of events. (by emiliecox)
Full of drama, tension, romance and talent, this film has given me shivers from the very beginning. I have never fell more in love with the characters then in this movie. The actors did not have much experience which is what I have concluded my research to. But during their acts in the film, they have not even given me the hint that they weren't. The hip-hop violin theme that is represented is very original and gives a complete different image of classical arts. As the two themes combine classical and hip-hop , the story fills itself up with tension and talent. I do hope for those <more>
actors, musicians and actors greatness in their futures as they deserve it.
Did anyone who shared a rating watch this movie? This was by far the best Music based movie I have seen. The leads were spot on and the music fantastic. The ending performance totally blew me away. If you like music and or dance, don't miss this one if you can find it. Bravo indeed.
Great music and great dancing (by englchen7-346-279944)
I don't know why this movie was not advertised and obviously only shown in a few theaters. We never heard of it and stumbled across it on Netflix and had to buy it online. The music in this movie excellent. It is beautiful composed and Johnnie really looses himself in the music. Johnnie plays the violin with a passion that is breathtaking. Ruby's dance is wonderful and she has that innocent Femme Fatale down pat. The dance off in the subway between two rivaling dance teams was unexpected, but I found them to be better dancers than the main dance team living below Johnnie. The final <more>
dance sequence is emotionally charged and one of the best I have ever seen. This movie can easily hold its own with any other dance movie our there. A must watch!
Thank goodness someone finally made a dance film that fits the bill as entertaining, artsy and family friendly. The two leads Keenan Kampa and Nicholas Galitzine are new comers to Hollywood but they do a wonderful job, have amazing chemistry and are certainly attractive to gaze at! I especially enjoyed all the twists and turns of the plot but the dance is what really shines in this film! There are numerous styles of dance from Hip Hop to Tango, Irish Dance and Ballet. It is rare that a movie can capture dance but the scenes are brilliantly edited and directed so that you feel emotionally <more>
connected. The original score is an integral part of this movie and it weaves it's way through the film in a seamless blend of classical and current music. The final dance scene will have you cheering and crying while you are on the edge of your seat! I was really surprised that even my husband flipped over this film. If you want to see a wonderful "feel good" movie that is appropriate for the entire family, you will be in for a treat with High Strung!
Why I recommend you to watch this *-* (by purple_whisper-84232)
This is by far the best movie I watched this year, and I've watched a lot! The acting isn't really satisfying since they seem acting; the main actress and few of the sub-actors aren't really fluent speaking of acting here .Now,the plot is good, little bit predictable, but very good for a romance-drama-musical movie. At the beginning, the movie seemed familiar and I almost stopped watching it, but the main actor is just cute *-* and after around 30 minutes, some twists appeared, and it became really interesting to watch. The pop dance steps, the violin musics and the ballerina <more>
swings were all good, original and different since the main instrument is the violin.I rated it by 9 stars because after the magnificent last performance, I wished they lost to change the routine of THE MAIN CHARACTERS ALWAYS WIN, but they didn't, and they won. Surprisingly, and as much as it was expected to see them win, I was so happy when they were announced as winners. It is what the end made me feel that made me rate it by 9 stars. You will enjoy watching it, if you're the type who likes fluffy cute stuff. PS: it is the material you would watch with your family, it has only few kissing scenes.
What a gem of a film. I wasn't expecting much when I hit the 'Play' button, but as I kept watching, I was surprised at how good it turned out to be. It was predictable at times and yet I found myself still rooting for the main characters. Have you ever started watching a movie and during the opening credits, you start scrolling through your cell phone? That's what I did in the beginning. After hearing the music, I looked up, put my cell phone down and stared enjoying the scenery in the 1st few minutes. I was hooked after that. If you have seen a lot of dance movies Step-up, <more>
Save the Last Dance, Stomp the Yard I suggest you give this film a chance. It might surprise you, like it did me.
Predictable and Inspiring (by duvernetphotography)
This is a well worn genre and story line. There have been many other dance movies with the same set up. Unlike others, the main dance character played by Keenan Kampa is the real deal. Unlike Flashdance, in which the climactic dance scene actually too three different people to pull off a male hip hop dancer, an Olympic gymnast and a dancer , Keenan is the real deal. That's what made the movie for me. The Brit is a heavy character played weakly, Keenan's delivery is a bit too soft and sweet and there is certainly no Black Swan drama. Nonetheless, I feel the artistry, I connected with <more>
the desire to be different in a world expecting compliance and the final competition scene is worth the wait. The music is great and the dancing wonderful. There is no doubt, this movie is playing to a main stream audience. It is careful to avoid anything too cruel, rude or violent. So what, I enjoyed to scenery, the dancing and the music. Be inspired even if it is predictable.
There is obviously a lack of emphasis here. However, it is one of those fast paced movies and the producers also aware of the fact that the movie could easily be reputed as such a cliché. So they don't give hard time to the audience and directly delivers the story. Most of the time I enjoyed it, and recommend everyone who isn't only the fan of the unique, must seen movies. We have got to know that not every movie is made to become a masterpiece.Besides, critical minds can easily detect the flaws and decide not to see the whole of it by watching the trailer. Those who want to get some <more>
