All Stars

Another banal Brit-flick featuring talent-show tweens

Some day, God willing, there will be a moratorium on films about plucky kids putting on talent shows to save their schools/parks/yoof centres from predatory developers.

Until then we are doomed to get movies like this, a naff slice of urban wish-fulfilment in which tween misfits set aside their differences to prevent the bulldozers destroying their preposterously drug, crime and trouble-free hangout.

Ashleys Jensen and Walters are among the adults who look on benignly in a banal, corny Brit-pic that’s sure to be laughed out of cinemas by its target audience.

      I've seen All Stars three times and at all three venues the target audience absolutely loved the movie. You could hear a pin drop during Ethan's scene stealing heart to heart with his estranged father. This movie may have streetdancing in it, but it's a world away from Streetdance, Step up etc. Origami Samurai warriors? 3D dancing Space invaders fantasy sequences? Pop culture references from Eminem to Starwars... It's a *fantastic kids* movie. To paraphrase Kiss et al, if you don't like it, you're too old (at heart)
