Feel the Noise
Source: Catholic News Service
Pleasant if naive musical in which an aspiring rapper (Omarion Grandberry) must leave his Harlem home and the single mother who raised him (Kellita Smith) after attempting to steal the wrong person's hubcaps, and goes to stay with his father (Giancarlo Esposito) and stepmother (Rosa Arredando) in Puerto Rico, where he befriends his musically inclined stepbrother (Victor Rasuk), falls in love with a local dancer (Zulay Henao), discovers the pop music genre called reggaeton, and manages to impress a New York-based music producer (James McCaffrey). Director Alejandro Chomski's film is mostly just a showcase for the singing and dancing, but fans of world music, and of reggaeton in particular, will no doubt enjoy what they hear. Sexual activity without nudity, drug use, skimpy clothing, suggestive dancing, one use of the f-word, two uses of the n-word, and occasional crass and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
