Genre: Drama | Music | Romance

Year: 2010

Rating: PG-13

A tight-knit group of New York City street dancers, including Luke (Malambri) and Natalie (Vinson), team up with NYU freshman Moose (Sevani), and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip hop dancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever.

Most every dance/romance movie is the same, they have cool dance moves but they are predictable as far as story goes which isn't really a bad thing since most people know what their getting going into them. I received the 2D version so I am not going to be able to comment on what the 3D is like. If you're looking for some kind of cinematic masterpiece to watch I suggest you keep looking but I really believe people that watch these films know what they want to see and again there is a market for these. The story and dialogue are the film's weakest parts, it is predictable and there is a lot of cheesy dialogue going on but the dancing and the music are what people come to see. As far as exhilarating dance moves and high energy music this has to be the best of the three films. I can only imagine that the dance parts of the film looked pretty incredible in 3D and in the theater. The dancing is beautiful and and at times breathtaking to watch and when it comes to these films that is really the most important thing, the scenes of drama and romance are really just filling the gaps till the next dance sequence comes around. The acting and cast were average at best except for Adam G. Sevani who plays the character, Moose, Adam is easily the best actor in the film and his character is certainly the most developed. If you like these movies I have to recommend checking this one out if you didn't get a chance to see it in theaters, I have seen all three now and I think this is the best of them all, certainly what you see is what you get but for what it is I found it to be pretty entertaining.
