Andie, who doesn’t care about school, is trying to figure out where she fits in in life. The only thing she loves is dancing with her street crew, the 410, led by Tuck. The 410 are the most notorious of the street crews in Baltimore and are wanted by the police for their acts of vandalism and public mischief. Sarah threatens to send Andie to live with relatives in Texas unless she cleans up her act, which includes ending her association with the 410 and trying harder at school. Andie’s neighborhood friend, Tyler Gage, convinces Andie to audition for entry into the Maryland School of the Arts (MSA), an institution which ended up turning his life around for the better. Andie passes the audition but isn’t sure she fits in there. The school’s director, Blake Collins, isn’t sure she fits in there either. Blake is a brilliant dancer but looks for conformity to his way. After learning that Andie’s absences from rehearsals are due to her new association with MSA, Tuck kicks her out of the 410. Chase Collins, a dance student at MSA, convinces Andie to start her own street dance crew using all the dance misfits from MSA i.e. those that don’t conform to Blake’s way of thinking. Chase feels like he’s one of those misfits being Blake’s brother and living in his shadow. This new association brings up a few conflicts within Andie, as her new dance crew tries to gain respect on the streets, especially among her old and judgmental friends, and as she and the crew try to hide the fact of what they’re doing from Blake, who ultimately threatens expulsion from the school of anyone participating in the illegal street competitions.
Plot: When rebellious street dancer Andie lands at the elite Maryland School of the Arts, she finds herself fighting to fit in while also trying to hold onto her old life. When she joins forces with the schools hottest dancer, Chase, to form a crew of classmate outcasts to compete in Baltimore s underground dance battle The Streets.

It accomplish exactly what it was supposed to…
I would write about the plot here, but seeing how there isn’t really one, I find that pointless. This movie is basically about one thing: Awesome dancing. If you walked into this movie expecting anything else, then you walked out severely disappointed. I, thankfully, expected this movie to be a strenuous two-hour music video, and, it having gone above and beyond my expectations, walked out completely satisfied (in fact, I saw it twice).
Step Up 2 presented some of the most amazing street dancing sequences that have ever appeared on film. The final dance literally had me leaning forward in my seat, as if I were watching a high-intensity fight or chase scene.
And come on. I’ve heard a lot of complaints about the acting. I thought the acting was not too bad, especially since they initially had to find really good dancers…that happened to act. Comparably speaking, I wouldn’t say it was any worse than, say,the acting in Jumper, which was fairly horrendous at times *cough*Jamie Bell and Hayden Christenson.
Highlights: The video that the new crew makes for the streets.
The characters Moose and that hilarious Asian chick.
Latino dance scene
And, of course, the final dance scene.
I gave this movie a 6 out of 10 because this is a film quality grade, and, as a film, it wasn’t spectacular. However, Step Up 2 accomplished just what it intended to do: create an awesome excuse to show off amazing dance moves for almost two hours. In fact, it passed with flying colors.
Pretty Bad film
You seriously have to be into this low brow stuff to like this movie. And it’s not even the content that dumbs this movie down. But both the message and the characters are stupid. I’ll start with the message. The message is to be yourself and not conform to what other people think and feel. You know why I have a problem with that? It’s because when you go to get a high education it’s ALL about conforming. That’s why you go. To understand someone ELSE’S rules and follow them so you can be successful in someone else’s world. Because this is not YOUR world. Right now this is a white man’s world and that’s not going to change any time soon. If you don’t want to conform that you don’t have to. But don’t try and change an entire organization that was perfectly content with the way they ran things before you came along. 6 or 7 people should not change how an organization of thousands of people operate. That’s just reality. This is a dreamers movie.
I also don’t care for the characters. You’ve got this white girl with this chip on her shoulder who can dish it out but can’t take it. She feels she can make fun of someone and joke around but when someone does the same to her, she goes all “you ***hole” on us. I hate that. Girls shouldn’t behave that way. If you want to talk smack them be prepared for it to come right back at you. She is part of a group of ignorant teenagers with bad style. The ring leader of this group is violent but can’t do anything by himself. He’s got to have his friends by his side before beating on someone, which is cowardly and stupid.
You can’t hold respect for these characters. They are all shallow and idiotic. Honestly only teenagers can identify with this movie. But mature, educated people know that this type of attitude about life will land these characters exactly where they dance: the streets.
