Overview

Director Jon M. Chu takes the helm for this Step Up sequel set at the Maryland School for the Arts and following the journey of a rebellious street dancer who struggles to fit in at the prestigious school. Andie Briana Evigan may show great promise as a dancer, but she just can't seem to let go of her old life and get a fresh start. With Baltimore's hottest underground dance contest looming on the horizon, Andie joins forces with top dancer Chase Robert Hoffman while simultaneously helping to sharpen the skills of her outcast classmates. Perhaps if Andie, Chase, and their talented team of misfit dancers can earn the top slot at The Streets, the troubled new arrival can finally make her dreams a reality while also letting go of the past, and bounding confidently forward into the future.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
If you're expecting a dance movie to soar on the strength of its storytelling, look for another genre. Many modern dance movies, especially those featuring urban dance, follow a predictable template that features a a fish out of water, b the structured establishment that reluctantly accepts the fish, c the ways the fish loosens up the establishment, and d the ways the establishment refines the fish. But if you're expecting a dance movie to soar on the strength of electric set pieces and terrific musical accompaniment, Step Up 2: The Streets can definitely step up to the plate. Unlike many sequels, Step Up 2 is not just out to borrow the brand name of Anne Fletcher's surprise hit original. In fact, it even contains a casting link to the first movie, as Step Up star Channing Tatum shows up in the first act to bust a couple moves and introduce the fish du jour Briana Evigan to her rigid establishment. However, the exciting dance-off between Evigan and Tatum, which features a springboard sunken into the floor that the dancers use like a trampoline, is not the film's first explosive sequence, and not nearly its last. The film starts with the dance equivalent of a flash mob on a subway car, finishes with a street duel where the dancers cut swaths through the pouring rain, and includes all manner of funky grooves in between. At the same time, if Jon M. Chu's movie were only the sum of its dance moves, it would be lacking. The predictable template plays itself out nicely, with a good lead performance from Evigan as Andie, and enjoyable secondary performances from the dance academy misfits who form their own crew to take on Andie's former crew. Step Up 2: The Streets is a toe-tapping good time.

    Amazing movie!

    The movie Step Up 2 is about a teen named Andie, who after getting in some trouble for street dancing, is sent to a school of the arts where she finds she doesn't fit in. After becoming friends with Chase, they form a crew with other outcasts of the school and start their journey to battle in the streets.
    I personally loved this movie and think that Step Up 2 is a great sequel to the original Step Up! It brings all the dancing and drama of the first film while also being able to stand alone. Even if you had never seen the original Step Up, you would not be lost when watching Step Up 2.
    Step Up 2 had amazing dance choreography. The dancing was so original and I could not take my eyes off the screen whenever they got into a dance scene. The characters move in ways that seem physically impossible. It's a type of dancing I had never really been exposed to before and so it was so fascinating to see it for the first time. The stunts these dancers did absolutely took my breath away. If you like hip-hop dancing, you will love this film. The fact that the main characters are all real dancers and not just actors trained to dance really made a difference in this movie. They bring their expertise to the film which makes the dancing real and authentic.
    Not only was the dancing amazing but the whole plot of the movie is very realistic. Hip-hop dancing is very popular among teens and so to have this be the main focus of the film really connects it to the teen population. The scenes flow very well together and everything was well thought out and integrated into the film. The set, costumes, and even the music all connected very well together. The music of the movie was very upbeat and vibrant which complemented the hip-hop feel of the film extremely well and added a positive energy to the whole thing. Having the music tie in well with the film added to its overall appeal. I enjoyed the music so much that I went out and bought the soundtrack of the film.
    I would recommend this movie to anyone. Drama, suspense, love, and also incredible dancing are all rolled into this movie. Even if you don't know a thing about dancing you will enjoy this movie. While this movie isn't a comedy it does have occasional jokes that make me laugh which is also why I love it. Younger children should stay away from this movie because there are some scenes of violence and also some swearing. Teens would especially love this movie because of the upbeat music and dancing. It's fun, exciting, and the dancing is captivating. It makes you want to go out and try some of the dance moves yourself. Overall, it's a great movie and I recommend it and the original Step Up too.

    Even better than the first!

    With a movie like this I don't expect much out of the plot and dialog, but this movie was great all over. Not to mention the choreography was phenominal.

    &quot The best dance movie ever&quot

    The overall plot of the movie was ok but the dance scenes were sick.From the first dance with Tyler from the original movie till the end with them battling it out. This is the best dance movie I've ever seen. Your boy Chris Brown should of been in the movie also. But they can always make a Step Up 3 with him and Ciara.
