In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing.

"The FP" is something very different from the producers of "Paranormal Activity." Director's Jason Trost and Brandon Trost have come up with something that is so different I'm not even sure there's been a film like it before. This is one of those movies that doesn't need much introduction because it's best you know as little as possible about it so the above synopsis is good enough going into the film.

The film is not going to be for everyone because it is one of those films you either get or you don't but if you like something different then I recommend picking it up. It's nearly impossible to tell this was done on a small budget because the production is so good, the acting is great and the outfits and sets are incredible and they really help in setting the mood. Think of the film as "The Warriors meets You Got served" or any other dance film you can think of. Everything about the film from it's slang to it's dance cage matches is totally ridiculous but it all some how works. The film is played serious and not one actor breaks character which is why it is all so hilarious.

"The FP" is easily the most creative and original film I have seen in a long time so if you're like me and are sick and tired of all same stuff released in theaters nowadays then I suggest you pick this up, sit back and just enjoy the ride. The film is a blast and the narration is done by James Remar (The Warriors), how cool is that?
