Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Who needs competent acting and writing when there are so many shiny, pretty things flying right at you?"
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"The dance scenes are inventive and pop out in all kinds of strange places."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Blends the narrative, the dancing, and the music in a vibrant way that hasn't been captured before. Otherwise, it's really just more of the same."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Genuine and genuinely infectious."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Whilst the film attempts to advocate the organic and liberating tenets of dance, it contradicts this message though consumerism and unashamed product placement."
‑ Shannon Wright, Moviedex
"I think it actually honors the art form of dance, but not in a solemn, highbrow way."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"Though director Jon Chu brings admirable energy and imagination to Step Up 3D's dance extravaganzas, he can't animate shockingly wooden performances or cure stumble-footed dialogue."
‑ Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies
"With each successive film, whatever passes for story becomes all the more shallow and trite--and the movies as a whole actually get *better*."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Incredibly stupid in just about every way. And yet, it had what may have been my favorite scene at the movies this year...[Blu-ray 3D]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"The only laugh comes during the end credits, when the phrase 'featuring characters created by Duane Adler' pops up onto the screen. This film had characters? Now that's entertainment."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Functions less as a story than as a catalog of references meant to interest a young audience: mixed martial arts, parkour, X-games, Red Hook, Chinatown, D.I.Y. filmmaking."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"The main reason to see Step Up 3D is for the high-energy dancing and innovative camerawork, and on those points it delivers."
‑ Ylan Q. Mui, Washington Post
"Plotting along at an infantile level, the story here is nothing new and hardly means anything."
‑ John Esther, UR Chicago Magazine
"The latest entry in a consistently underwhelming series..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Step Up 3D is one D too many. This gimmick-laden film is filled with clichés in the production as well as the script."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
