Feel the Noise ★½ 2007 (PG-13)

Familiar scenario plays out to the sultry beat of reggaeton. When Harlem rapper Rob (Grandberry) tangles with a local gangster, his mom ships him off to Puerto Rico to live with his estranged dad (Esposito) and his family. Stepbrother Javi (Rasuk) introduces Rob to the local scene and music as well as sexy sweet dancer C.C. (Henao). She pushes Rob's musical ambitions, which eventually leads every-one back to New York. The soundtrack will probably do better than the movie. 86m/C DVD . US Omari (Omarion) Grandberry, Victor Rasuk, James McCaffrey, Giancarlo Esposito, Zulay Henao, Kellita Smith, Melonie Diaz; D: Alejandro Chomski; W: Albert Leon; C: Zoran Popiv; M: Andres Levin.
