Step Up does justice to its genre by not pulling any stops in delivering a truly enjoyable movie
Choreographer and now director Anne Fletcher hits the mother lode with this gem of a dance flick! Having painfully seen similar dance-themed teen movies in the past (Take the Lead, Save the Last Dance, etc.), Step Up does justice to its genre by not pulling any stops in delivering a truly enjoyable movie. Hindi nagtipid sa pasikat.
Unlike similar movies where the audience agonizingly waits through scene after scene of boredom for a grand dance finale (which usually fails to enthrall anyway), Step Up treats the audience to several impressive, memorable sequences thoughtfully scattered throughout the movie. Finally, we are entertained by a dance flick where the leads (Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum) are both beautiful to watch, have good chemistry (enough to sustain the kilig factor) and can really deliver the moves.
Dewan is a superb dancer; she has a fabulously fit body, not the anorexic ballerina type, and she dons her outfits exceptionally well for someone who’s only 5’3″. It was also amazing to watch such a tall, gorgeous man like Tatum move the way he does (it must help that the boy knows his Kung Fu!). His deadpan facial expression makes his line deliveries unexpectedly funny. The supporting cast also amply sustains the rest of the story. Step Up churns out enough high points that you pardon its hiccuppy subplots and scene-stealing extras.
Does Not Deliver **May Contain Spoilers**
If you are looking for another “Save the Last Dance” type of movie, save your money. I’m a professional dancer of 20 years who can never pass up a dance movie, however this one didn’t deliver the goods. I was disappointed in the lack of a story that held no depth you can chew on. The story follows a similar theme: Boy is a great b boy dancer who happens to be poor. Girl goes to prestigious art school and is a ballerina. Their worlds clash. They dance together. The end. The story line is very base and boring. The art school director’s character is beyond unbelievable. I think her entire character consisted of frowning at b boy dancer as a punctuation to each scene that included him, up until the end. The two leads hardly look young enough to be in high school. Jenna Dewan looks like a 25 year old chain smoker, rather than a fit and healthy dancer. She tried her best to whine and produce teenage angst toward her mother, who was just as boring to watch as she was. Jenna’s friend in the movie gets cheated on by her boyfriend, an aspiring singer. Predictable. The music was dull and uninspiring. Personally I couldn’t wait to leave. I wanted to walk out on the film, yet at the same time wanted to give it a chance. If you truly want to see this film, wait until the last 15 minutes of it, walk in and sit down to see the “senior recital”, where girl and b boy boyfriend get on the stage and do a decent production number, but then it’s over. This was about the only interesting part of the entire 98 minutes.
