Step Up 2 The Streets
Dir: Jon Chu. US. 2008. 98minsA fresh slate of young performers, combined with energetically staged and photographed sequences that convey the cathartic joy of dance, easily outweigh some of the more predictable rhythms of formulaic storytelling in Step Up 2 the Streets, a fun, flirty and engaging teen drama and stand-alone sequel that serves as the latest entry in a line of pan-ethnic dance films pitched chiefly at teens and big-city twentysomethings.
