Step Up 3


Step Up 3 starts with Moose (Adam G. Sevani), who is going to NYU as an engineer, but can’t help his urge to be a dancer! During orientation, he finds himself in a battle against the world's best dancers, the Samurais. Trying to escape from this battle, Moose meets up with Luke (Rick Malambri), leader of the “Pirates”, who finds people that love to dance to join his team. Unfortunately for Luke, a dance club he owns is going bankrupt. Luckily for him there is a $100,000 World Jam competition that would allow him to keep his club! But the plot doesn’t stop here. Luke ends up meeting the love of his life, Natalie (Sharni Vinson), and trying to recruit her to help win this competition. But standing in the way for Luke and the Pirates, the Samurais are also looking to win this competition so they could buy Luke’s dance club! Boy, does Luke have his hands full…

 

So many different problems these poor characters face:

 

Does Moose pursue his dream of being a dancer?
Does Luke get the love of his life?
Do the Pirates win the World Jam?

Did any of these people take acting classes?
Does Luke get to keep his dance club?
Does anybody really care?
 

If you are a fan of energetic music and dance moves, this movie is for you! If you enjoy a great plot and great acting, this movie might not be for you. Although this movie has amazing dance moves that resemble robots, the acting done by the characters is also robotic. I really don’t understand why the director even bothered with a plot or storyline. The audience knows where the movie is going and how it is going to end. He should have taken out the acting scenes and thrown more dance scenes in! The best parts of the movie were the dance scenes, not only because of the amazing choreography and acrobatic moves, but simply the fact that these were also the scenes where the characters didn’t talk. So if you like dancing and want to watch some amazing dance moves, then this movie is for you!
