Movie Summary

Director:
Sam Firstenberg
Released:
1984
Rating:
PG
Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo is a 1984 breakdancing film directed by Sam Firstenberg and the sequel to the film Breakin'. Kelly (Lucinda Dickey), Ozone (Adolfo "Shabba-Doo" Quinones), and Turbo (Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers) are back and still breakin'. An evil property developer is planning on bulldozing a community center called Miracles and the only ones who can stop it are Kelly, Ozone, and Turbo. To stop their beloved recreational center from becoming a shopping mall, the gang gets together to somehow raise the $80,000 they need to save their hangout. The highlights of the film involved many musical numbers and dance sequences showcasing the hot breakin' style of dancing that was a fad at the time of the film's release. The film also features Ice-T, Darlene "Shortcake" Pabalan, Dave "Campbell-Lock" Pope, and Steven "Sugar Pop" Daniells.

    It turns out to be under-powered and low-wattage. Breakin' 2's plot could use about six months on the Nautilus equipment to tone it up. [19 Dec 1984, p.C5]
