Review - Step Up 3D

Bosan kat rumah...terus login gsc...tengok ada cerita nie kul 12:40 a.m...


Perfect timing...dah abis terawih semua...just that nobody nak gi tengok lah...sebab lewat sangat...no worries...i have no problems about watching movie alone...sometimes i do watch alone as i can just focus on the movie...i watched the previous two step up movie...the first one was kinda cool...the second one gets better in term of the choreography...and this third installment is no disappointment...the dance was sleek...do remember to ignore the ridiculous story line...and kinda repetitive too...


The movie started off cool enough with this mini documentary about people who dance...and then in central park there were these new NYU students attending their orientation...Moose (from Step Up 2) and Cam (Step Up 1)...and moose got distracted by this so-called-limited edition Nike shoes that he followed the guy who wore the shoe to the place where some dancers are 'battling' out their moves...and people around them are betting...and of course...moose got in to the battle and won and ran away from the police...i hate to elaborate why...only to be saved by the nike shoes guy, Luke (who look more like a supermodel than dancer)...

This luke guy...i dont know what to make of him...he owns this building which have club downstairs and this dance studio upstairs...and have all these street dancers who had been chased away or ran away from their respective homes under his care...okay fyne...he is some sort of guardian dancing angel...erkkk...and he supported all these  people...including foods and all and what not (including deng gojes shoes weih...dozens of them) with the revenue of his not-so-profitable club...

He then recruit moose to be in his 'crew' (obviously this is what dance group is called) and this another girl who Luke found in his club, Natalie...he then took in these another two people under his wings and then getting all of them ready for the world jam dance battle...the winner will win USD100,000...which luke desperately needed to pay off the mortgage...

But what is a movie without drama...here comes Julien...luke's sworn enemy who will do whatever he can to win the world jam title and at the same time trying to buy off luke's safe haven...surprise surprise...turns out natalie is julien's lil sis...and you kinda guess what happens afterwards...but blah blah blah blah....everyone kiss up and make up...and they all went for the competition and won...yeah...everybody happy...owh yeah...luke and natalie after that went to california as luke enroll into a film school and natalie...hurmmm...being a loyal girlfriend...just follow luke lah...tacky...cliche...but i kinda love the movie though...

Overall the movie storyline kinda...eeerrrrrr...but try not to focus on the storyline and you are safe enough...the highlights of the movie are the dance sequence...my favorite is of cos the second battle against the chinese with the song Beggin' as the background...and it got all those water sequence in the dance which made it looked so aerodynamic and seriously cool...another one will be the tango sequence during natalie's birthday...and seriously...did luke went for the rehearsal beforehand or something...he came to the party without knowing anything...and suddenly on the dance floor...there he was...dancing to the same rhytm and tune as others...OMG...but the dance sequence was seriously sexy...hello...its tango...and another one of my fave part of the whole movie is where the MSA Crew (from Step Up 2) made an appearance in the later half of the movie to support luke's crew...there was kiddo, cable, smile etc...i think cable is seriously cool (he also appeared in Glee)...

This movie does have its moments...and those moments made it good enough for watching...and just to let you know...i watched it twice in the cinema...hehee...watching this movie made me wanna sign up for a dance class and join some 'crew' then battle it out in Showdown...boleh la dapat RM50,000...hehehe...seriously...if this movie doesn't make you feel you wanna just go out and dance...i dont know what will...
