Step Up 3D
Two Worlds. One Dream.
A tight-knit group of New York City street dancers, including Luke and Natalie, team up with NYU freshman Moose, and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip hop dancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever.
Cinema of agility in its purest form. Bliss.
An entire squaggle of middlers 'stepped up' for this all time classic romp. On the downside this is no 'Honey. Some of the chicks looked like they should be en-fenced. All is not lost however, this version shits on 'Step Up' and 'Step Up Two - Take It To The Streets', although the latter has a much much cooler name.
In summary, 'Step Up 3 - Take It Back Inside' has enough side boob and velour derrière to enrapture boys from 12.5+

DJ: "¡Eso es bailar!"
This movie is absolutely horrible. The acting is terrible, the use of speed ramping is terrible, and the story is nonsensical. Still, there is one thing about this film that makes it a must see. As this installment in the prestigious Step Up series is shot in 3D, there are plenty of moments that are ridiculous when watched in glorious 2D. There are multiple times when the lens is splattered with different liquids, and the slurpee scene has to be seen to understand just how stupid it is. Step Up 3 sets a new low for dance centric films, but still, it is a rather hilarious train wreck.
Like a porno, the plot of this film is secondary. It is clear that it's intended to be seen in 3D; the camera work constantly reminds you that you're missing that extra dimension. The dancing is creative and astounding; in 3D maybe it would blow your mind. I preferred Step Up 2; it had a better balance between dance and story.
jon chu decided to let vanity get the best of him, and make a movie mostly about himself. sean, a sorta dancer/documentary filmmaker, has organized a group of dancers around him to form a crew known as "the pirates." he functions as a stand-in for chu, highlighting his love of dance and his desire to surround himself with amazing talent that he can document with his camera. but in picking a protagonist who can't really dance, and an actor who still can't really act, we end up with by far the blandest lead in the series' history. or, actually, not even so much bland as actively unlikable. one of the first scenes he appears in shows him stalking around the…
To be honest, I slept through most of this movie. There's some good dance scenes but other than that this movie is just boring or extremely corny and predictable.
There are two reasons you see these movies. The 3D and the dancing. This movie has so much 3D action in it that it hurt to not watch it in 3D. I would probably end up giving this movie 6 stars if I saw it in 3D. The dancing in this movie is so phenomenal that it totally makes up for the lack of a decent story. I don't know what I was expecting from this movie, but I got everything I wanted and more out of it.
Every dance movie cliche is here. There's the new recruit to the crew, the more well-funded, underhanded crew, the turncoat crew member, nobody outside of the dance world understanding why it's so important, the big dance battle everyone has to train for, the impending eviction/destruction of the rec center… All of it is here. And you know what? That makes it even better, because it lets you focus on the dance battles and the crazy 3D effects. And make no mistake, 3D dance battles are the point of this movie. It's nice to have a 3D movie embrace its 3D-ness, and this movie goes nuts with it, with long takes of well-chroeographed dancers making motions directly at the screen and…
The best of the franchise so far, although thats not really saying much. Still, for all it's terrible lines and cringe worthy life messages, the dance battles are genuinely exciting, which is the point of the movie.

Ok, I will admit, I hated all the Step Up films. I couldn't tell the first 2 apart and Step Up 4 was a generic, hackneyed mess. That being said, it is a miracle that I liked Step Up 3 (aka Step Up 3D [*cha-chig!*]).
Step Up 3 is about a kid named Moose who along with his childhood friend, Camille, is starting his first semester of college at NYU. Moose then encounters a dance group known as the house of samurais led by a guy named Julian who is rivals with a guy named Luke who leads a dance group known as the house of pirates. Moose joins the house of pirates in a dance competition in order to…
This series is such a guilty pleasure.
Moose pop and locks all over my heart in this impossibly good masterpiece of modern cinema.
I have grown increasingly fond of goofy ass dance flicks. I don't know why but I have. The plots are paint-by-numbers and the acting is usually atrocious but damn it if I don't have a ridiculous smile on my face when it's all said and done. The Step Up franchise is the Cadillac of these types of movies and has rather effectively built up, a la The Fast and The Furious, a contained universe with various characters moving throughout the films. On a personal note, if the next movie featured nothing but Moose and the Robot Guy in a dance-off for 90 minutes...I'd be the first in line.
