Fun dance movie. Watching dance in 3d is great.
28 July 2010 | by MosHrSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at a screening and really enjoyed it. The 3d aspect is done quite well with the in your face dance moves and dance effects. However, I can't help but get the feeling that it wasn't done to its full potential and I'm sure the sequel to this movie will remedy that. I don't think the dance moves were choreographed with 3d in mind but I'm sure this will be realized in later movies as well. But, what is done here is really something I've never seen before. The plots and subplots are good enough to drive the story forward but not too overbearing to take anything away from the dancing. The only problem that I felt was that from the vast pool of supporting cast and dancers, the story focuses squarely on the lead.

A lot of reviewers on IMDb talk about quality of acting and directing but I'm not knowledgeable enough in those things to comment about them. Nor am I too knowledgeable about dance moves. However, as an average viewer, I did see some martial arts and parkour influences. Apart from that, I had no idea why someone was winning a competition or what the rules were but as you'd expect, the dance aspects were really well performed and presented. The movie takes dancing and competitions very seriously and it never falls into "unintentionally funny" moments which is quite a feat since the dance genre is so heavily parodied.

The other uncomfortable aspect was the product placement and brand splashing. I suppose a lot of movies are doing this to help out the budgeting but when characters start sprouting about some brand of shoes or when the underground dance competition has a huge product banner on the wall, it really hurts the movie since it pulls you out of their world and you realize you're in a cinema and you're watching an advertisement or product placement.

Overall, the movie is enjoyable and the 3d aspects are a prelude to what is possible with this genre and 3d technology. The cast is young and vibrant though all I've never seen them in another movie before. The dancing is presented really well here and this is an enjoyable movie.
