Itís time to fight for the only thing left worth fighting for! Step Up 2: The Streets gives you the sense that everyday high school kids donít know a lot but one thing they do know is reputations. Having a huge reputation on the streets is just like having a big CEO Job at a big corporation.
We pick up our story following Andie in her struggle to find her way in life like any other high school girl. She is always finding a way to her herself into trouble at school and seems to only want to hang out and dance with her true family and crew; the 401. On the verge of being sent to Texas, away from everything she knows, she is forced to enroll in a new dance school start building a new life.
Here is where she meets up with some new friends and starts to see what really matters in life and what is best for her. As she falls further away from her old life, it still canít help but force its way back into her new one and really make things complicated.
In her last effort to completely move on she joins up with the newest heartthrob in her life and form a new crew with all the outcast of her new school to battle for the Streets Title. Now dancing behind the headmasters back, facing expulsion, and up against time she must mesh with her new friends styles and come up with the hip new dance that will overthrow the defending champs, the 401, for the Streets Title and all the bragging rights out there.
Enjoy cameos from the Jabbawockeez and performances from some of the best dancers across the country. They will make your jaws drop and keep your eyes glued to the television with some of the best and coolest choreography ever assembled with the best dance scene ever created to finish everything off.
The camera angles were amazing, especially the opening subway scene. Surprisingly there was a lot of thought put into this movie and it showed with flying colors and will have you glued to the edge of your seat and television with the all the dance scenes, especially the final dance performance.
If you are looking for something other than a movie with cool dances you will give this a much lower score due to the dull plot line and hard to watch acting. This movie will surprise you wither way and really isnít all that bad as you might have thought first seeing the trailers.
