Step Up 3 Review!
Prior to watching Step Up 3, i heard quite a lot of negative comments regarding about the movie. Most of it were about how the movie suck big time. So when Neeti told me that we're watching Step Up 3, i was a bit apprehensive at first because i'm not sure if it is worth watching a movie that so many commented that it was not nice. But i went anyway, keeping my expectations as low as possible and not hoping too much.
Surprisingly, the movie did not turn out as bad as rumored. I've seen worse movies that made me go cursing in the cinema but Step Up 3 was definitely not one of them. Of course, perhaps one of the reason why i did not hate the movie so much was because i starred in the movie! Okay, it was not me actually, but it's a person with the same name as me called Luke too!

And like me, Luke in the movie is a videographer too!

We share quite some similarities i realized except the only difference is that i don't have an exceptionally sexy girl approach me when i'm holding a camera, that is.
Similarities between me and the main character aside, the story is about "A tight-knit group of New York City street dancers, including Luke (Malambri) and Natalie (Vinson), team up with NYU freshman Moose (Sevani), and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip hop dancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever."
The movie boasts of stunning choreography and dance items alongside with awesome cinematography that manages to capture the essence of the dance perfectly. To top it all off, it has excellent soundtracks that makes the movie a must watch dance movie. Although the plot is somewhat predictable and not new, with themes like believing in yourself and chasing after your dreams, it's not surprising considering it's a Disney movie. And Disney movies are usually catered for children and teens so don't go in expecting something like Inception.
All in all, it's a watchable movie. If you're the kind of person who enjoys sweet romantic movies with happy ending, and you enjoy watching awesome dance moves, this is the movie for you. If you want a movie that test your mind and thinking, please go watch Inception.
