I can't quite recommend it, but... for a certain demographic why not.
February 15, 2008
Promises to hit all the urban-dance hallmarks with sledgehammer intensity.
February 14, 2008
Only any good when people are dancing.

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.

Stumbl[es] gracelessly from point A to point B and hitting all the expected notes in the process.

Let's wait for a movie where they do get it all right: story, acting and dancing. It'll happen, just not this time.

The story may be old, but these kids act -- and dance -- as though they are telling it for the first time.
February 14, 2008
Step Up 2 the Streets posits a universe where racial and class differences are minor obstacles to fun and pretends its clichés aren't clichés.

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

Reeks of artificiality and phoney emotion.

Completely predictable.

Providing you're not hip-hop- or cliche-averse, see Step Up 2 the Streets with the right expectations and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The dance has to be good because the rest of the movie is one long cliche.

As strictly formulaic as its predecessor, this installment generally gets the job done, essentially resembling a longform music video interrupted by a perfunctory plot.
February 13, 2008
It doesn't skimp on cool pretzel moves.

February 13, 2008
Step Up 2 features nearly as much dancing as it does dialogue, and that's a good thing, considering the after-school special quality of its obligatory emotional scenes.
February 13, 2008
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.

A finale has the young people all dancing in the rain. Like almost everything else about the movie, it has been done before. But it's still foot-stomping fun.
