Step Up 3-D Reviews

Whilst the film attempts to advocate the organic and liberating tenets of dance, it contradicts this message though consumerism and unashamed product placement.

The only laugh comes during the end credits, when the phrase 'featuring characters created by Duane Adler' pops up onto the screen. This film had characters? Now that's entertainment.

When Step Up 3D isn't throwing stuff at the crowd, its dance sequences do jump out of the screen in a pretty cool way. The routines are impressive, but the plot less so.

It's the same movie as the earlier "gotta dance" over-choreographed crunk-and-breakdance epics. Exactly the same. Well, stripped of any hint of edge or sex appeal.

Unless you're a Happy Meal-wielding tween, you should probably step off

Alas, the extra dimension doesn't compensate for a clichéd, predictable plot, one dimensional characters, mediocre performances and dopey dialogue.

Just as people go to the Final Destination films for the death scenes, anyone still turning out to see a Step Up flick is in it for the dance scenes, not the character arcs.

By adding 3D, Step Up 3 has morphed from a film into that creepy guy who dances at you in clubs.

Functions less as a story than as a catalog of references meant to interest a young audience: mixed martial arts, parkour, X-games, Red Hook, Chinatown, D.I.Y. filmmaking.

So devoid of spark and humour that no matter how loud or fast or yoof it gets, it still feels like an endless slog.

Though director Jon Chu brings admirable energy and imagination to Step Up 3D's dance extravaganzas, he can't animate shockingly wooden performances or cure stumble-footed dialogue.

The 3-D at its best pops (a red-gloved dancer bursts out from the screen as if diving through a window), but more often it's merely Dramamine-inducing.

The dance sequences in Step Up 3-D are thrilling, but the script is strictly 1-D.

It's like Muppets Take Manhattan, but replace a milquetoast young artiste for an amnesiac frog and a group of muppets for a post-racial group of seamlessly integrated metrosexuals.

The script doesn't even try to find an edge, serving scripted tripe to unprepared actors, making the dramatic stretches of the movie a real pain to sit through. The feature should've cut footloose and stayed there.

... the dances are juiced up with all kinds of snazzy digital effects ... Were the dances digitally created as well? Maybe not, but the suspicion alone is fatal.

Saw 3D looked like the scariest tri-dimensional offering at the movies this year. Until now.

Even with the addition of 3-D it feels as if the Step Up series has nothing new to offer.
