One Sentence: The best use of 3-D in 2010.
Running Time: 107 Minutes
Release Date: 06-Aug-2010
I have already gotten crap for even going to see Step Up 3-D from my so called friends. They don't know a secret though, I liked the last 2 Step Up Movies and after I saw the previews for Step Up 3-D I have to say I was a little bit excited. Now this review is not going to be about how this film stacks up to something like Inception. What it is going to do is look at what it is, a dance movie, and how well it did that in 3-D. Well Step Up 3-D delivered the best non-animated 3-D experience of 2010 and I had a damn good time watching this movie in 3-D.
Filmed 3-D has some limitations on angles. You can't do everything you can with a normal camera, things have to be set up differently, this was perfect for a dance movie. They had to place the camera down on the floor and shoot the dancing straight on, and I could not have been more impressed with the way it looked and that they didn't mess up all the amazing dancing with tons of quick short shots that cut away from what I am there to see, amazing ass dancing, awesome music and dope set up's in 3-D. I got it all, along with a story that was good enough, and acting that was good enough that I didn't notice, which is exactly what I wanted. This movie is not going to win any awards, but I don't care. When you want to set up a room in your house with pillow floors and build a boom box speaker wall, something right happened in the movie you just saw.
It is rare that I say you have to go to the theater and in 3-D if you want to see this movie at all, this is one of those times. Go see this movie in the theater, in 3-D if you like any type of hip-hop dance. Step Up 3-D is not a renter, it was made to be seen in 3-D and I would say that it was totally worth it, I had a awesome time with it and I think you will too.
