Dein Perry, the dancer and choreographer who scored an international hit with the stage show Tap Dogs, made his debut as a film director with this drama inspired by his early days as an Australian laborer. Sean (Adam Garcia) and Mitchell (Sam Worthington) are two brothers who work at a steel mill in a rough-and-tumble area of New South Wales, Australia. Sean is a talented dancer and thinks this could be his ticket to a better life; Mitchell, however, is more practical, and tries to talk his brother into joining him as he opens a new business, leaving dancing as a hobby. Tensions grow between the brothers when Sean quits his job to study with a well-known dance troupe and come to a head when Sean and Mitchell fall for the same woman, Linda (Sophie Lee). Dein Perry also co-wrote the original story for Bootmen, as well as appearing in a small role. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Plays like a soap opera, BUT the characters are likeable and you care about them, BUT it is formula and there are no surprises. The choreography is terrific and the finale about the best tap you can imagine. Worth it......
One reviewer is right - nothing new here in the story line. It was kind of like a ougher meaner "Grease" and I would say geared more for the teen audience. However, the dancing was wonderful, and after all, that is what I was most interested in. Adam Garcia is worth watching, as were his supporting dancers. It was worth watching.
Like "The Full Monty" and others, this movie takes "manly men" and turns them into "unmanly" dancers, or at least that is the joke the producers would like the general public to enjoy. Is it supposed to alert the public that it's "okay" and not necessarily "gender bending" for men to involve themselves in the arts? Do we need this edification? Or is this laziness on the part of script-writers/producers (for want of a more intelligent premise) or just plain insulting? In any event, there is absolutely nothing new here. However, the dancing is very good, the cast nice to look at and competent acting....and if your choice is to watch this or regular TV programming, I'd opt for this.
