I haven't seen the other "Step Up" movies, so don't be concerned that you're dropping into the middle of a franchise. This one appears to be more of a spin-off than a continuation, so not having seen the previous films doesn't much matter. You're supposed to be surprised and thrilled when a team of cast members from the first couple movies shows up towards the end, and you know what? I was pleased by their heroic arrival even without knowing their back story. The final dance-off is awesome.
This is a 5-star 3D movie with a 2- or 3-star plot. But I recommend it for dance fans of all decades.
If you love dancing, you'll enjoy this movie! All the actors/dancers are very talented, impressive with their moves and portray their characters well.
Also, the 3D is well done and makes the viewing experience all the more compelling.
OK, it's a pretty predictable plot, so don't focus too much on that. Just sit back and let the dancing move you.
By the way, I gave it a solid 4 out of 5 stars for sheer entertainment value only because I can't include it with all the really GREAT movies that deserve the maximum rating.
And if you like this movie, you'll like the sequel, "Step Up Revolution 3D," as much or better (also a solid 4 out of 5 stars) -- for all the same reasons.
Honestly the story serves as an excuse to show off some killer dance moves. You can tell these people work hard, and showing off that talent is the sole purpose of this movie. I don't take the drama seriously in the least--they all seem too cheery and bubbly to go to "war" with other dance troupes--but the moves are cool and the 3D probably takes the cake out of any other current live action BluRay 3D (barring Avatar maybe, and it's definitely better than RE Afterlife in terms of the 3D). A lot of the 3D is behind the screen and those shots all look real, like you're on set. The "out of screen" effects never seem forced either; they never seem like a pointless gag. Rather the few "pop out" effects that the director employs are more along the lines of "holy crap that's awesome!" when they are used. You never get sick of it, like you're being fed a gimmick. Usually it's a close up of a dancer, and it feels like you're right there in the crowd, like the guy/girl is trying to involve you in the show.
Bottom line: the script isn't amazing but it's not awful. Acting isn't the best but it's not horrid. The story is pleasant enough so that you're not hoping for the movie to end, and the dancing/3D filming are engaging enough to make you wish there was just a little bit more. Hopefully Step Up 4 will be in 3D as well, that's all I'm saying.
