If your into dance and wanna watch this for the dance scenes, then this is the movie for you.
If you're like me and wanna watch a movie to be entertained and enlightened, well this isn't the movie to see. Acting totally bombed but then so did the acting in you got served. If you thort that movie was corny then you'll find this one corny too.
A few weeks ago a friend and I saw the preview for Street Dance. I turned to her and said that I expected that it would be the same as all the other recent dance movies made, with the only difference being that this was in 3D.
Tonight we watched Street Dance and I was pleasantly surprised.
Yes, Street Dance follows the format of most dance movies, think Save the Last Dance, Step Up, You Got Served, How She Move, Dance with Me etc. However, I believe movies can be a little like Mills and Boon; if you have a tried and tested format that works then stick with it. The difference with this movie is that it is available in 3D and I believe that this helped you feel part of the film and the dancers virtually “popped” off the screen. You felt you were there and part of the action.
So the acting was not amazing, however the dancing was absolutely out of this world. There was so much energy and at times I felt myself tapping my feet in time with the action on screen. Dance movies never fail to make me want to be able to dance with energy and grace.
The scene where Carly goes to the ballet reminded me a lot of when Richard Gere takes Julia Roberts to the opera in Pretty Woman.
There was a part in the film that I think was meant to be the “twist” and meant to fuel the dance groups fire, nevertheless I guessed it fairly early into the movie.
I am from the generation that gave the world Flashdance, Footloose and then Dirty Dancing. So, yes there are different things that could have been done with the film. Yes, the acting could have been better. However, it was an enjoyable hour and a half of entertainment and I would certainly watch it again.
