A Video Review of "Center Stage"

Copyright 2002 Glenn Walker

What can one say about this Fame wannabe? It's another niche movie like Drumline or Bring It On. It may be entertaining to all but it's really set up for a particular audience, in this case, the ballet crowd.

The musical numbers and dance productions are exquisite. The talent in this cast is unparalleled, although I have to wonder if we'll ever see them again. The nameless and faceless (at least to me) students often get lost in the drama to get in the school.

Broken down to the bare bones however Center Stage is really just a remake of Fame in a ballet school as twelve students try to get into the prestigious American Ballet. It's Fame with MTV sensibilities. Worth seeing.
