Step Up 2 the Streets Reviews

February 14, 2008
Step Up 2 the Streets is the latest of this genre more obsessed with dancing than with a good story, which, despite all the explosive dance routines, results in an unsatisfying experience.
February 14, 2008
The dance has to be good because the rest of the movie is one long cliche.

Catnaps are an advisable way to survive some of the slow spots. Or, better yet, wait for this to be available on DVD when the fast forward button will turn Step Up 2 into something shorter and more enjoyable.

I can't quite recommend it, but... for a certain demographic why not.

Not exactly the Jets and the Sharks.

All the scenes where people aren't dancing tend to be forgettable, but the dance sequences are energetically choreographed and performed.

This isn't a very good movie, but it's probably the best of it's kind.

Promises to hit all the urban-dance hallmarks with sledgehammer intensity.
February 13, 2008
Somehow Streets is even more loathsome than its predecessor...offers gaudy choreography more reminiscent of a Kenny Ortega masturbation session than awe-inspiring foot magic.

too afraid of deviating from the typical dance movie formula. And in all honesty, it's not such a great blueprint to bother following anyway.

It's very hard to argue that the dancing falls short, which means that the film at least justifies its own existence.

For all of its ragin' dance moves and rebellious talk, is high-spirited and harmless. An MC at one dance contest declares, "This ain't 'High School Musical'!" Oh, but it is.

Dance scenes feel like a diversion, since the story, acting and dialogue are sadly lacking in originality and substance.

Undeniably energetic and viscerally satisfying, but emotionally hollow.

A brainless piece of product that is so utterly devoid of anything not concerned with the idea of separating 12-year-olds from their allowance that it makes the Hannah Montana infomercial/movie seem like "There Will Be Blood" by comparison

Evigan might have an attractive midriff, but she sometimes starts to give a William Shatner-like delivery of lines with odd pauses and exaggerations.

All of this feverish bending, twirling, twisting and snapping of the body is so infused with attitude, in fact, that it allows the film and its characters to live and breathe in ways that run counter to the movie's otherwise rhythmless script.

More flare is needed to make us care about these characters who swoop, spin, and glide.

March 20, 2008
With a script cut-and-pasted from every other dance movie, this film is shockingly corny.
