Street Dance – Learning to trust your partner :)

Street Dance – The Crew

Synopsis:
When top street dancer Ash (Falk Hentschel) is humiliated and laughed off stage by American crew Invincible, he sets off to gather the best dancers from around the world to take them on – with a dance style they weren’t expecting. With landmark locations, a spectacular fusion of dance styles and an unparalleled vibrancy, the sequel to StreetDance sees our hero fall in love with a beautiful salsa dancer as he discovers the magic, power and passion of dancing for the ultimate global dance off.

Review:
If you have watched StreetDance before, I’m sure you will think that StreetDance 2 is better. StreetDance has combined ballet with street dance (imagine how gross it is) and in StreetDance 2, they have combined Salsa with street dance. Sounds better right?

But when compared with Step Up 3D, it sucks big time. The choreography is not creative enough. Fast dance moves do impress me but only for a while because fast doesn’t mean it’s entertaining. I couldn’t feel them as a team and it’s not emotionally engaging. Not a tear shed. And mind you, I’m an easily touched person.

So… do watch the trailer. It practically sums up all the good scenes in the movie.

Rating: 4/10

    storyline sucks, dance move not impressive, the opponents dance more synchronized and the worst part is the draggy emo dance and also the long winded blindfolded salsa dance… i dont even know that their manager Eddie can dance until he showed it to the salsa girl

      Hahahaha yeah I hate the draggy emo dance!
      The blindfolded salsa dance is still OK πŸ˜€

    yup not a tear shed from me too..I'm an easily touched person as well!! >.< lol the ONLY part I liked was the final dance :/

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08580401745734409754 Charmaine Pua

      The problem is, I don't feel anything special with the final dance too >.<

    actually quite predictable for this kind of movie, because the main focus is the dance itself.. i actually admire those who can dance so nicely.. :)

      But even the dance is not so impressive also :(

    actually step up 3D's plot was pretty cliche as well. thanks goodness i didnt get to waste my time on this. dance movies usually suck anyway

      I don't really mind if the plot was cliche as long as the dance choreography was entertaining :)
