Step Up 2 the Streets
The kinda-followup to ''Step Up'' is set in the same place, but with a different cast. A young woman, a member of a dancing street gang, gains admission to the elite dance academy. This proves to be too much for her old friends, who kick her out of their dance team. She decides to build a new crew, using a convenient hunk at her new school, and other new schoolfriends. Their aim is to win the underground ''The Streets'' dance competition.

98 minutes.

Chandler Levack quote iconSure, this sequel to 2006 urban-dance flick Step Up features a formulaic storyline, lazy racial stereotypes and wooden authority figures. But look beyond the token wrong-side-of-the-’hood plot, and it’s pure cinematic spangle from the first bump and grind.

James Berardinelli quote iconThere are lots of energetic dance moves, throbbing music that uses every channel of the theater's digital sound system, and a good looking girl who looks even sexier slicked down by water. In fact, all this is almost enough to make one forget about the cardboard characters, trite storyline, feeble romance, and embarrassing sermonizing about everyone getting along together.

ScreenIt
quote iconWith its title being the most creative thing it has to offer, Step Up 2 the Streets isn't good enough to warrant the making of a third installment, let alone Step Up 4 Some More.
