Even when being viewed as just a stand alone dance film, it wasn't great. The acting was terrible. You didn't care at all about anyone in this movie. They changed some plot points around, and as a result, some of the "tension" felt forced and frankly pointless.
I didn't even check out the special features. I just wanted this crap out of my DVD player.
When Ren McCarthy arrives small in town Bomont, he discovers dances are banned following a tragic accident several years earlier which killed five high schoolers. Not only that, if you blare music as you drive your car along a country road you can get fined, and you can easily get dubbed a bad boy.
He soon locks horns with police, preacher, and headmaster. When his attention turns to the attractive, rebellious yet troubled preachers daughter, Ariel, played by Julianne Hough, she blanks him.
Highschoolers have a secret place to blare music, and get footloose. Before long the authorities appear.
Now Ren moves and catch the eye of Ariel. Her brother died in the accident, messing her up, and she acts out, thrillseeking, dangerously self destructive, she dates the local bad boy. As the attraction grows, conflicts arise with both the preacher, and the bad boy. Will Ren get her? Will she change her ways? Will they do the special mambo? If you're like me these are some of the questions that run through your mind as you watch this movie.
Not having previously seen the original Footloose, I was curious to see this because of Julianne Hough, who has won twice on Dancing with the stars, and is a world champion ballroom dancer. Kenny Wormald I had not heard of before. He has danced professionally with some of the world's top entertainers such as Justin Timberlake, and I believe Mariah Carey. I found his performance in his first leading role engaging, and clearly he has amazing dance skills.Read more ›
This 2011 version of Footloose arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.35:1 encode. The picture is wonderfully crisp with outstanding clarity. The image retains a natural layer of grain, resulting in a film-accurate representation. Fine detail is wonderful: whether the texture of blue jeans; cowboy hats; human faces; the dirt on the road; pavement; foliage; building façades; or the dings, dents, and worn paint on vehicles; there's never a surface that's not superbly reproduced. Colours and skin tones are natural and balanced. Blacks are inky too. This is a wonderful video presentation. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is loud and dynamic, and yet it retains impeccable clarity. The music is played with seamless spacing and a fine immersive sensation. Music is crisp with great solid bass, like the stomping dancers, the rumble of a tractor's engine, and various crashes. Chirping birds, light winds, and the din of a busy school hallway are all seamlessly recreated. Dialogue is clear and never lost to supporting elements. This is simply a great soundtrack. (5/5)
Footloose has an estimated budget of $24 million, but grossed only $51 million.
Julianne Hough beat out several favourites including Hayden Panettiere, Miley Cyrus and Amanda Bynes for the part of Ariel.
Julianne's big brother, Derek Hough, who is still with Dancing With The Stars, starred as the lead character (Ren McCormack) in Footloose: the Musical.
The film is dedicated to the original 'Footloose' (1984) director, Herbert Ross. Not only in the end credits, but the cop who pulls over Ren has "H. Ross" on his name tag. He is credited as Officer Herb.Read more ›
