REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..this formulaic urban dance film doesn’t have the right moves..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..seems as bored with the movie's protagonist as we are..”
by Jessica Johnson [Time Out New York]
2.5 of 5

“..half-cooked subplots, confusingly compressed timelines, and enough awkward edits to make it impossible to full-throatedly endorse this earnest and sympathetic but unsophisticated debut..”
by Kimberley Jones [Austin Chronicle]
“..best of all, "Go for It!" speaks to working-class young women without ignoring issues like race, class tensions and domestic violence. It's never mawkish, even at its understated climax..”
by Andy Webster [NY Times]
“..annoyingly, the dance sequences - mostly club battles between all-female crews - are over-edited mash-ups of close-ups and sloppy camera movement, chopping up the human form in a way that does no credit to the hard work of choreography and technique..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
Review rate : B+

by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
