However, not only is he the most popular guy in school but his brother is it’s new director.

In Andie’s first class she is told to improvise, only used to upbeat music, she panics and makes a fool of herself, then when told to do it again she messes up again.Only this time catching the eye of Chase.she is made to attend after school classes- at the same time as the 4 1 0 ‘s dance rehearsal .After the lesson she heads down to rehearse with the crew, and she’s late not impressing her fellow crew members. After being late yet again and after mssing most rehearsals Andie is kicked out of the 410 crew and now cannot battle in ‘The Streets’.

On realising that she needs a crew Chase comes to her rescue, saying that under the radar in MSA there are a lot of people who would be skilled enough to join a crew. They find 10 people to join them in their crew, the MSA crew. They start practising and realise that they aren’t good enough to battle at ‘the Streets’ yet. So after embarassing themselves at the dragon in a dance battle against her old crew one of Andie’s fellow 4 1 0 ers decides to help them out. She helps them realise they have what it takes and make a prank, something that will help them get noticed. They stage their prank in the home of the lead member of the 410 crew.

However, he knows that Andie is somehow responsible and calls her to his office, where upon a discussion he expells her and she is left shattered…

A few days later while the school is hosting a fundraiser they all recieve the text message telling them where ‘The Streets’ is being held.

    As with the last user who commented, the reason for this score waspurely the dancing. Now, to be fair, the acting abilities of the twomain characters was average…even above average at times…though notstellar. However, their dancing was freaking SICK. I've seen a lot, andsome of this freestyle was off the charts incredible. The only reasonthat I went to see this movie, in fact.

    Briana Evigan (Andie) is an amazingly talented dancer. Her acting wasactually not that bad, I was pleased. Robert Hoffman (Chase) was thetypical charming, blond-haired and privileged pretty-boy…with anedge. His dancing was phenomenal, they were both exciting to watch.Their chemistry together was enough to make it hard to tear my eyesfrom the screen. If the trailers entertain you, and you're a fan ofdance see this movie. Though the plot is weak, and the dialoguelaughable, the dancing is enough to make spending your $8 on the ticketmore than worth it.

    I actually thought that the movie was pretty good. It's not as bad asthe reviews that it's getting, just don't go in expecting to get anOscar performance. The storyline was a little all over the place.Typical teen dance movie. BUT the dancing is amazing couldn't keep myeyes off the screen. Robert Hoffman did a decent job, he really laysthe charm in throughout the whole movie. The dance scenes make theentire movie. Ethnically, it is such a diverse cast of people, there issomeone for everyone to identify with. The soundtrack is insanely goodalso. By the end of it you will be quoting lines and wanting to dancefor sure.

    The story lacks substance, but I did not see the movie for story… Isaw it for the dancing and the dancing was great. I love all dancemovies though. This was definitely the movie with the best dancing, butnot necessarily the best storyline. Take the Lead was a better story,but the dancing could not compare. The new characters were cool too.They had pretty good chemistry. The movie kept me totally entertainedthe whole time even though it was totally predictable. Like I said thedancing was what I wanted to see and I was not at all disappointed. Thelast 15 minutes of the movie made it definitely worth an hour and ahalf of my time. If you like dancing you'll love it… if you don'tthen you won't!

    Alright, it doesn't have what it takes to get the Oscar…. BUT Ipersonally liked the dancing scenes, actually I was amazed by them …!In my opinion the movie deserves the 8 points, after I read how hardwas the shoot of the last dance .. in the rain… and after I saw themovie and the great dances I think this movie deserves a Highopinion…

    I would recommend it to people who want to get away for an hour and ahalf.. I enjoyed every minute of it…. the actors had some weakpoints, but all in all they did a good job to present the protagonistsin the movie and they did a GREAT job with the dancing scenes!

    I certainly didn't have high expectations for this movie, but I figuredthe dancing would be fun. My expectations were exceeded, WAY exceeded.Sure it has a predictable plot and it's nothing more than aright-side-of-the-tracks/wrong-side-of-the-tracks love story (Pretty inPink, West Side Story, Romeo & Juliet, etc.), but the dancing wasreally incredible. I'm way older than the target audience and yet Ithoroughly enjoyed this movie.

    If you're looking for groundbreaking plot, acting, or directing, youwon't find it here. But the acting/directing was just fine, and thedancing was stellar. If you're concerned with the acting, I guess thatwould be like going to an action movie and judging it based on theacting rather than the action.

    A movie like step up 2 or almost any dance movie for that mattertypically has poor writing/script and nothing beyond decent acting. thewhole point of these movies is to take your breath away with dancemoves and step up 2 does just that. trust me when i say this, the lastscene of the movie is one for our generation, one of the best dancescenes in any movie, creative and different it will shock you. ithought stomp the yard had good dance moves and it did but this movieactually outdid that movie. i normally do not like dance movies, i didnot like you got served, one of the worst movies ever made possibly, idid not like step up 1, etc. it starts slow to be honest and in thebeginning it's nothing that you or i haven't seen before but everythingcomes together in the end and its great, the last scene and the dancingis what makes the movie and worth the price of admission.

    You guys over analyze…sit back and enjoy a great movie. I guess youhave to have a passion for dancing to enjoy it but if you don't thenjust don't ruin it for anyone else. We don't sit here and make fun ofyour little horsey movies or little car movies, everyone has their ownlikes and dislikes and if you enjoy dancing you will enjoy the movie.The actors/actresses are portrayed as very skilled dancers in thismovie and you eyes will be glued to the screen. Both Step Up movieshave GREAT choice in characters because the lead roles in both filmsare gorgeous. Both girls and guys. I am a big fan of dancing movies ingeneral, and these two both top my list. Ignore the bogus comments.Definitely worth watching.

    A rebellious street dancer named Andie, part of Baltimore's mostintimidating dance crew, the 410, who is given a chance to attend theprestigious Maryland School of the Arts. She finds it difficult to fitinto her new school life while keeping her friends from the 410.Determined to prove her skills, she assembles an eclectic crew ofclassmates that includes Chase, the schools best dancer, to competeagainst the 410 in the premier underground dance battle in Baltimore,The Streets.

    I quite enjoyed Step Up, although the plot was clichéd and predictable,but the dance moves were good. Now picture that, times TEN! Anyonecrazy enough to see this movie for the plot should not see this film.Why would anyone see this movie? The dance moves.

    There are double the dancing sequences and double the greatness! I waswon over by it. The charming two leads and the lovable characters addas the cherry on top. The plot? There's nothing there. Been there. Donethat. However, if you set your expectations right, you'll be surprisedto turn out that you like this movie.

    Obviously, if you're an older person, you may not like this movie asmuch as if you're a teen. Of course, the demographics for this movie isto attract teens. All in all, this is about a notch or two better thanthe original, but plotwise, it's the same. Watch this movie for thedances. Not the plot. Otherwise, the piece is entertaining.

    "Step Up 2 the streets" is a movie that is for a fun, "no-thinking"outing. The sequel to the popular "Step Up" was obviously not as goodas the first (sequels and prequels never really are) but it was a funfilm to watch.

    There was a few good comedic scenes, and the street dancing really wasincredible, especially at the end of the movie. This kind of movie isobviously going to be a little bit predictable and cheesy, but still-it's fun to see with some friends on a Saturday night.

    Also, the soundtrack really helped improve the movie; there were manyexcellent, cool songs playing throughout the film, such as "The Way Iare" by Timbaland and "Low" by Flo-rida ft. T-Pain.

    If you give it a chance, you may enjoy it. It depends on whether or notyou enjoy feel-good, funny dance movies. If not, then don't go see it!The final verdict: Step Up 2 is a moderately fun film.

    I didn't expected this movie to be much fun, but it was! The storyobviously wasn't that great and the ending was predictable. But thismovie didn't pretend to be "intelligent", it never tries it! The storyis told clearly and there aren't to much unnecessary scenes. Thedancing is good and there are various funny scenes! Everything aentertaining mainstream movie has to have. The acting is mostly OK, nomajor problems found, although there are a lot of stereotypes used inthe movie (the handsome white guy, the envious ex-girlfriend, the"Looser", the "bad" black guy,…). But which movie doesn't have them?I also like the soundtrack, a lot of good tracks can be hear with greatdancing performances. This movie deserves 5 out of ten points!
