Step Up 2 the Streets
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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I can't quite recommend it, but... for a certain demographic why not."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"For all of its ragin' dance moves and rebellious talk, is high-spirited and harmless. An MC at one dance contest declares, "This ain't 'High School Musical'!" Oh, but it is."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Competent and too innocent in its own way to strongly dislike, but there also isn't much to push it above mediocrity. There's more substance in cotton candy."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"...a minor improvement over its almost unwatchable predecessor..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Standard, well-made, urban dance movie."
‑ Jim Schembri, Sydney Morning Herald
"Promises to hit all the urban-dance hallmarks with sledgehammer intensity."
‑ Amos Barshad, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Stumbl[es] gracelessly from point A to point B and hitting all the expected notes in the process."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"Too bad much crap is needed to be waded through to get to the rather terrifically done finale."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"This isn't a very good movie, but it's probably the best of it's kind."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Will dance triumph over adversity? Will love between two attractive vacuous actors conquer all?"
‑ Laura Bushell,
"Only any good when people are dancing."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Let's wait for a movie where they do get it all right: story, acting and dancing. It'll happen, just not this time."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"To say this film (and any other dancing competition film) is formulaic is an understatement. However, formalism is entirely forgivable when you look at the marketplace."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A dance romance with attitude that will fall short if you're expecting fulfillment in the story department."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"It's not a little obvious that the Step Up franchise means to keep a Disneyfied hand in the apparently inexorable dance movie cycle."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters
