The third sequel of this movie, and the second attempt by the director Jon Chu, is although not comparable with the older ones but is pretty much impressive to move your feet. Dances with style and attitude always amaze us, but in the movies content will always be the king, no matter what theme you choose. And so “Step Up (2006)” was better than the second one, “Step Up 2 – The Streets (2008)” was good than the third one, and “Step Up 3D (2010)” is just average in comparisons with the previous two ones. But if not compared, and been watching the film as a completely solely, then it’s definitely a good entertaining movie.
It’s the same old clichéd story, where the hero, Mr. Luke (Rick Malambri) is running some workshop for the back dancers who don’t get opportunity to show their talent. But it was on mortgage loan with the bank so that he can run this workshop. The situation comes where he didn’t have any money to pay the interest of the loan, and it was decided by the bank that if not paid on time then it will be auctioned. Now he has only one chance to repay the loan amount, and that was the big competition which was being held as “World Jam Championship”. In which they can won a huge amount of money and can pay their debt. But for that they, as “Pirates” have defeat their rivalry “Samurai’s” in that competition. Now the old drama begins, Samurai’s lead member sister made a trap of love on Luke without knowing that she is the sister of that rivalry gang, and then gave the information their hidden secrets dance steps to the Samurai people. But later the girl realizes her mistake, get to know that Luke is a good guy and he is right and his brother is wrong. So finally at the final dance competition she dances with the Pirates team and at the end defeated them. To finish it, all lived happily ever after.
Though the story was corny, instead very corny, but still you will enjoy the film just because by watching some cool dance stuff, amazing dance steps, with fabulous attitude and style, and with brilliantly directed by Jon Chu. Performances were not good-not bad type, and the rest of the technicalities were fine as per the genre. Music and the songs played were awesome, splendid and super. By just listening to that you will definitely move your “Step Up”. And by watching it, you will definitely get inspire to make your “Step Up”.
This film is totally dedicated to all the ones who are passionate for dance. I am sure you won’t miss this step. And for the general audience, all the dance steps will amaze you and the story will bore you.
