    It's the same movie as the earlier "gotta dance" over-choreographed crunk-and-breakdance epics. Exactly the same.

    Watching this movie in 3-D is very much like sticking one's head in a blender and hitting "pulse."
  3. 30
    The dancers may be skilled, but their work has no meaning in terms of the story -- it's pure spectacle, and numbingly repetitive spectacle at that.
  4. 30
    Meant to take the scrappy and often ingeniously choreographed dance sequences to the next level, the result is stalled between floors: Some sick moves get even sicker; some become distorted and freakishly distracting.
  5. In Step Up 3D, what's going on is: nothing.
  6. 25
    Step Up 3D is strictly 1D. Tired choreography and moldy hip-hop gestures accompany insipid characters.

    Preposterous plot devices, leaden acting, and clunktastic dialogue are acceptable in a dance movie, but bad choreography is not, and it's during the dance scenes that Step Up 3D fails.

    I usually enjoy movies with choreography and professional dancers because they're usually exciting to watch. But this one is just tooI usually enjoy movies with choreography and professional dancers because they're usually exciting to watch. But this one is just too mediocre. The worst part is that I feel no efforts from the writers to build a fresh storyline. How many times have we seen this kind of plot, ffs? Full Review »
