The LXD, or the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, is an American web series that first premiered in 2010. Created by Jon M. Chu, who’s known for directing films such as Step Up 2: The Streets and Crazy Rich Asians, The LXD showcases an elite group of dancers who possess supernatural abilities that allow them to move, jump and perform gravity-defying stunts.

After the success of the first cycle, the LXD returned for its second cycle in 2011 with Secrets of the Ra. The film, like the previous cycle, is a series of interconnected vignettes, each of which delves deeper into the universe of these extraordinary dancers.

The story of Secrets of the Ra is set in Ancient Egypt, in a time when the civilization is on the brink of collapse due to a catastrophic drought that has left the land barren. The Queen, played by Alixandra von Renner, is desperate to find a solution to the crisis and has summoned the LXD to help her find the answer. The LXD, led by their fearless leader Trevor Drift, played by Dondraico Johnson, must undertake a dangerous mission to retrieve the “Ra," a powerful amulet capable of bringing rain to the desert.

What follows is a series of action-packed dance battles that take place across various settings - from the scorching desert sands to the shadowy underworld of the catacombs. The LXD, with their lightning-fast moves and mesmerizing dance sequences, must face off against their adversaries - The Dark Doctor, The Amazon, and The Shadow Triangle - to claim victory and ultimately, the Ra.

One of the standout performances in the film comes from Josue Antonio, who plays The Dark Doctor, the main antagonist of the story. His intense dance moves and striking stage presence make him a formidable opponent for the LXD. Mykal Bean, who plays the role of the young boy Tut, also gives a memorable performance, bringing a touch of innocence and vulnerability to the film.

The music in Secrets of the Ra is another highlight, with a mix of traditional Egyptian sounds and contemporary beats that complement the dance sequences perfectly. There are also plenty of nods to iconic films and pop culture references sprinkled throughout the film, making it a fun watch not just for dance enthusiasts but also for those who enjoy action-adventure flicks.

Overall, The LXD: Secrets of the Ra is a captivating dance film that combines jaw-dropping choreography, stunning visuals, and an engaging storyline. Whether you’re a fan of the first cycle or new to the series altogether, Secrets of the Ra is a must-watch for those who appreciate the art of dance and the power of storytelling.
