Movie Summary

Director:
Chris Stokes
Released:
2004
Rating:
PG-13

You Got Served is a high-energy drama about David and Elgin, two young men who dominate the Los Angeles dance battle scene. Omarion Grandberry plays David, while Marques Houston plays Elgin. The two friends split their time between practicing with their crew, competing in battles at their friend and mentor Mr. Rad's warehouse, and sometimes going on drug runs for local drug lord Emerald. When a new crew shows up and de-thrones David and Elgin's crew as local champions by stealing their moves, the two friends are thrust into a downward spiral by the crushing defeat. They'll have to join forces to avenge their loss and escape the dangerous control of Emerald. Steve Harvey turns in a brilliant performance as Mr. Rad, who helps the boys along as the streets' elder statesman. Michael Taliferro plays the villainous drug boss Emerald, and Jennifer Freeman plays Liyah, Elgin's beautiful sister and David's love interest. You Got Served is a stylish thrill-ride, full of hot action and world-class dancing.

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    A serviceable youth pic that's marginally less dumb than November's urban quasi-musical "Honey."
