Storyline

Donny's a cocky kid from New York who likes to dance. He goes to New Orleans and he unwittingly takes part in a criminal act. He is arrested and sent to jail. He gets out on parole and makes a living by dancing in the streets. But his parole officer tells him to stop it because he's not suppose to be where he goes to dance as part of his parole. The officer tells him to get a job but he only wants to dance. He decides to go back to New York even though he's not allowed to. He goes to his brother Nicky who has a club. He learns that Nicky and his partner Kaz had a falling out when a rich guy convinced Kaz that he doesn't need Nicky. Nicky told Kaz that he's just using him to get to Kaz's sister who is also a performer who is hoping an agent will take her as a client because she could be sent back to Japan where she is from. When Donny sees her, he can't help but be interested in her despite Nicky telling him not to go near her. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Highly recommended
4 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely love Derek. This was the first reason I watched it and he most surely did not disappointed me. How could he? He's an amazing artist! There is nothing he can't do. Honestly, I enjoyed this movie a lot! The plot, the acting, the dancing... It is probably the only dance movie I really liked this much. The song „Let me in" really stuck into my brain, brilliant work, wish Derek was the one singing it.

I really could see „Make your move" making a second movie, cause it would be really wonderful to see what Donny and Aya achieved, how they evolved in dancing and of course what other difficulties they had to cross.

Derek is a huge possibility to become a movie star, he can act, he can dance, he can sing......and he looks breathtaking! I am really sorry that my review can look not too objective, it is really only how I feel. Derek really knows how to create an intimate atmosphere and even we, behind the screen can feel it. That makes is so brilliant. Dancing can say so much too, Right?

Oh! Did I mention Derek?? He's lovely and funny in everything he does. ♥
