Consensus: It may not contain believable acting or a memorable plot, but Step Up 3-D delivers solid choreography and stunning visuals.

Who needs competent acting and writing when there are so many shiny, pretty things flying right at you?

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.

Step Up 3D doesn't have to be anything more than a series of completely magnificent dance sequences (all that tasty, candied melodrama is just a binding agent). And the dancing does not disappoint. It's virtuosic and exciting and borderline magical.

I think it actually honors the art form of dance, but not in a solemn, highbrow way.

The dance scenes are inventive and pop out in all kinds of strange places.

Dustin Putman

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.

Everyone in the cast can dance, even if only half can act. The revelation is 18-year-old Sevani -- he's got the ease of Gene Kelly and he can do the robot.

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.

Michael Dequina

With each successive film, whatever passes for story becomes all the more shallow and trite--and the movies as a whole actually get *better*.

Oh ma gosh, I should be sainted for sitting through another dance film with no substance, character structure, or for that matter, characters who anyone cares… More

America's Best Dance Crew: The Movie. What're you gonna expect? This movie is straight up made from cheese, the camera work was equivalent to TV soap… More

Amazing film! The dance moves are out of this world and the guy is absolutely gorgeous.
