Step Up 3D

Step Up 3D (2010) – Rated PG-13 for brief strong language.

If you’ve seen Step Up and/or Step Up 2: The Streets then you probably already know the premise of this film.  A guy meets a girl.  They have some sort of conflict.  They dance and ultimately compete in some sort of dance competition.  They win and end up together.  Oh yeah, spoiler alert?  No really, if you are even remotely interested in this film it most certainly isn’t for the compelling story or great acting.  You’re there for one thing only: the impressive dancing.  On that note, you’ll leave the theater satisfied.

It’s hard to knock the “actors” for their poor acting because they were hired for their dancing skills and not much else.  Though he’s certainly easy on the eyes, Rick Malambri isn’t going to be nominated for any acting awards any time soon.  And his character is hardly one of the best dancers on their dance crew, The Pirates.  His counterpart, Sharni Vinson, isn’t so easy on the eyes or a good actress so she has two strikes against her.  But hey, she can dance.  The true shining beacon of this film is the incredibly talented Adam G. Sevani.  His acting was not so bad and his talent as a dancer is quite apparent.  I wanted to see more of him on-screen.  Every time he was up there, whether it was his dancing or his scenes with Alyson Stoner, he was truly the only good thing about this movie (not counting the cool choreography, natch!).

Aside from the poor acting and the boring story, the dancing is as exciting as ever.  If they could just made this movie nothing but dancing it would have been a good movie.  It’s the great choreography that really makes this movie half-bearable.  And, as I said earlier, when it’s Sevani on the screen dancing you almost forget about all that hubbub around him.  If you go in knowing that you are going to watch a horrible movie with great dancing, it makes it a little easier to swallow this pill.  Filmtastic review = 2 1/2 stars.
