Considering the fact that I haven't see the first one (nor do I want to) I really have nothing else to compare this movie too, and because of this it stands alone. See it for the dancing. This was definitely the movie with the best dancing, but not necessarily the best storyline. The movie kept me totally entertained the whole time even though it was totally predictable.

Any educated film-goer knows not to expect much going into Step Up 2, but it couldn't hurt the film-makers too much to throw in just a tad bit of creativity into the project. This movie completely relies on it's dancing. There is a very lame and formulaic story, horrible acting, and terrible writing. Films are stories, and film-makers are story-tellers. Dancing is not a method of story-telling. If a person wants to see dancing, they can find it on T.V. or at the theater, but it shouldn't be used so excessively in movies. Unlike the first Step Up, which had a decent, half-way original story, and decent acting, Step Up 2 has nothing to offer but flashy moves, for anyone whose interested in this product of MTV, generation-b, pop culture slop.

Ok, could everybody please stop saying this movie is just dancing, because FYI it is supposed to be about just dancing. You call that a dance movie. The story is not half as important as the dancing, because real children in the streets watch movies like this and then teach themselves to dance. They start crews and they find their inspiration in the amazing moves of the legends. They do not care about the story, the have got their own story to write and they need examples to follow. If you do not like dancing, do not watch dance movies. It is as simple as that. Now that we are all on the same page, this movie is excellent. The casting is good and I thought the plot was entertaining enough, because it is real. Movies do not have to be imaginitive or unreal. Movies can be an opportunity to …

Andie is a street grown girl, born on the streets and suffered on the streets. After the tragic death of her mother though, the streets become her family. Dancing in the streets is like none other, no rules, no boundaries, only your style and your crew. When Andie finally gets it big though, her only shot is to go to MSA. There, she meets Chase, the most popular guy in the school and talented when it comes to dancing. When Andie is kicked from her crew though, Andie and Chase make their own and bring it to the streets.
Step Up is definitely not in my favorites list, I thought it was boring and a drag to watch. So approaching Step Up 2 was a little hard, since it reminded me of movies like You Got Served and Stomp The Yard. Now that I have watched the whole movie and saw what it had to …
