I haven’t seen the previous two Step Up installments but I’m sure they are all similar to any other dance films. Let me tell you the cliches of all these kind of films; a group of unwealthy dancers but very talented, main rivals with past connections with the protaganist, financial difficulties, little love stories and problems in between, a spy in the group, new recruits, an emphasized slow motion finishing move at the end, happy finale. This one is no different.
Although this movie has a predictable plot, the dance choreography and visuals effects are just fantastic. Even I was amazed. Not to mention that I have absolute no interest in any kind of dancing. However, the film lacks of hot chicks. The female lead, Sharni Vinson, failed to deliver enough sex appeal in the movie. Rick Melambri, the protaganist, on the other hand, is extremely good looking but did not really impress me with his dancing.
Verdict: Typical storyline but brilliant dance choreography and incredible visuals. Even non-modern dancing fans might find the dance scenes entertaining. But would I have paid to watch this film? No.
Favourite scene: The final dance battle between Pirates & Samurais.
Rating: 2.5 / 5
