However, no one watches this sort of movie for the stellar acting or plot. There was one reason, and one reason only, why I watched Step Up 3D - the dancing! And in that respect, the movie more than delivered. The dancing is absolutely fantastic. It's the sort of movie that makes you want to get up and dance yourself, or attempt to, anyway. And for a dance movie, I don't think there's any higher praise.
Another surprising highlight of this film was the 3d! It might sound laughable, but I think Step Up showcases some of the best use of 3D since Avatar. No, really. I think the difference between Step Up 3D and all of those other post-Avatar movies is that most of the latter were filmed in 2d and later converted to 3d film, whereas Step Up 3D was conceived in 3d and filmed with 3d cameras from the start. With other movies that have been converted to 3d, the 3d seems like nothing more than a dumb gimmick meant to drive up box office receipts. Step Up 3D on the other hand fully utilizes 3d technology in order to make the dancing really 'pop.' Unfortunately, since 3d-capable TVs are still a relative rarity, most people who watch the movie at home won't be able to see Step Up in 3d format.
In short: The acting? Meh. The characterization? Non-existent. The storyline? Trite. The 3D? Surprisingly great! The dancing? OMG COMPLETELY AWESOME I NEED TO SIGN UP FOR A DANCE CLASS RIGHT NOW!! (<-- You get the idea.)
The setting is also perfect to showcase 3D. Since the film is based in New York the outside scenes offer incredible depth. Also, the brightness doesn't at all look too low as it does on many 3D blu-rays. I watched for a reduction in brightness the whole time and really didn't notice it at all. Ghosting also never seemed to appear. Both the outdoor and indoor scenes have a great level of brightness. The outdoor scene of Alyson Stoner and "Moose" dancing is an incredible showcase of 3D and the brightness and color palette are incredible. This 3D blu-ray is a must have in your collection. There are no special features in 3D, which was a little disappointing. The 3D quality of the film and the dancing made up for it though.
One of my favorite features on this DVD is the music videos. I put them on while I'm cleaning the living room and it makes the chore so much more enjoyable. I catch myself dancing around the living room (not nearly as well as the dancers in Step Up 3 but I have a lot of fun anyway). My second favorite feature is the documentary because it gives you new perspective and adds little details that are really enjoyable for the viewer.
