Movie Review: Step Up 2 the Streets


My Rating: 1Stars

This evening I saw the movie “Step Up 2 the Streets” at UA Cinema, Time Square, Hong Kong.

I was a bit disappointed to say the least. The dance moves were not that spectacular; at least to me. May be a true dancer will find them amazing.

The soundtrack was boring, I find each track to be the same as the others. Normally sequels are not as good as the original, but I was hoping this time it would be different. I had been surprised in the past: Die Hard, Indiana Jones and Bourne Identity.

There was a cameo appearance of the character “Tyler Gage” (Channing Tatum), but that was all there was to tie this movie with the original. May be they should have done more, may be they should have done it differently. In my opinion, whatever it is they had not done it right.

I suggest the directors, producers and writers to step up their game or step aside. I do not think they will try for Step Up 3. If anyone thinking about it, I suggest you come up with a new and more original story.
