I actually liked runway beat. this is a coming of age fairy tale of a boy who has awesome leadership skills and design talent. The most important factor here is that it is a fairy tale.
what i liked the most is that the movie seemed to have a message of "you can change if you believe" and "you can do anything you want to, against all odds". Although those are overly used and cheesy messages it really made me feel good to see the kids work at it. I also liked that the characters admitted when they were wrong, were focused on the goal, and made a beautiful show at the end.
I will admit that i too did not like the clothes, but that was a matter of taste. The male lead character turns out to be a hypocrite at the end (i really didnt like that). the ending was conclusive, but it was weak. the ending was told in the first person narrative, and the first person clearly did not state her end. although the focus of the story is a boy, the true main character is a girl (May); and while they show the growth and maturity of Bitto, May doesnt have that same growth. In addition Biito had a lot of different conflicts, i wish the narrative was his and not May. The supporting characters had really bad acting skills and unfortunately i think they were written not sterotypical enough. (there were a lot of things the class bully would normally never do)
Mainly this is a feel good movie about fighting against all odds to be the best you can be. no comedy, very very little romance, no bishies , completely unrealistic, but somehow i still liked it.

Aww this movie isnt as bad as the other review suggests. Yes the ending sux but the stuff that comes before is kind of interesting to watch. The acting was pretty average but I liked how all the characters come together, each having their own special talent, to put on this fashion show. Its the one last chance to spend with each other before the inevitable occurs (the sucky ending). I was really disappointing with the romance part cause they could've just added that one last scene at the end showing them together at least to give us some hope. But yeah I'll repeat the ending sucked. There are worse movies out there so if you just need something to watch this is okay, although 2 hrs is a little much for the story.
