Take The Lead

Description
Pierre Dolan is an ideal dance coach trying to offer a great example of nobility and honor. The story begins when Pierre sees a black teenager sabotaging the car of a public school principal. The next day he decides to volunteer to teach students dance. Pierre aims to teach dance to give respect, dignity, self-confidence, teamwork and stay away from violence and youth extremism. Seems to be struggling to achieve his goal, because the former director Augustine James tries to bring the troublemakers detained to tackle Pierre before achieving the goal of the dance, expecting Pierre to abandon his intentions to teach young people to dance. It is a real adventure by Pierre to carry out his real goal of educating young people to dance and win the competition.

Feels like a product, with decisions made for audience appeal rather than creativity.

While we may be able to pretty much guess everything that's going to happen in Take the Lead, its considerable charm lies in the way it fulfills, rather than bucks, our expectations.

A feel-good story using music and dance to guide problem kids onto the straight and narrow.....entertaining, although not the showstopper we might hope for

Think of it as the fictionalized version of last year's engaging documentary Mad Hot Ballroom, with teen dancers and sexier moves. It is also more formulaic and clichéd, thanks to the predictable plot and theme.

While their transformation is predictable, it's quietly enjoyable, and the teen angle opens the door to romance and gritty gang-war subplots.

For the most part, Liz Friedlander's direction and frenetic pacing mitigate any real performance opportunities.

Take the Lead is pure entertainment, if only for the endless amusement of watching Banderas spread the gospel of ballroom like he was born wearing a tuxedo.

it's just ridiculous, it's just ridiculous. One cliché right after another. Not for one second did I believe any of this.

A predictable and yet thoroughly enjoyable drama about the redemptive power of dance for a group of inner-city teenagers.
