At its best “Battle” offers agreeable performances and dance numbers that evoke martial arts flicks and “West Side Story.” At its worst it sinks into banality and 3-D rapid-fire shots of whirling, indistinguishable bodies. — Peter Keough, The Boston Globe "Battle of the Year" seems designed to capitalize on the success of the highly successful "Step Up" series of dance movies, but it lacks those films sexy, glossy appeal. — Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter The filmmakers have recruited a wonderful array of dancers here, all of whom are more than deserving of such a mainstream showcase. — Andrew Barker, Variety
There’s not much story to "Battle of the Year," but the athletic b-boy dancing (actually more gymnastics with attitude) is visually entertaining. — Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
