The movie has vim and spark in abundance and the filmmakers are canny enough to let the cast play to their strengths.
From a storytelling point of view I went to see Street Dance curious asto what kind of narrative could possibly be made out of such anunlikely premise - ie the combining of two such dissimilar dance stylesas street dance and ballet. The story that emerges here (out of theprotagonists initial reluctance to co-operate with each other) I foundto be original, had plenty of interesting dialogue and built up to avery satisfying and exhilarating finish. Several of the film'scharacters are portrayed in sufficient depth that I could feelsignificant empathy for them and their aspirations. The numerousconflicts, which arise at intervals right up to the film's closingminutes, (together with the manner of their resolution) kept myinterest at a high level. All the actors and actresses give believableperformances for their respective roles. It was also good to see anumber of faces I hadn't seen before. The cinematography I thought wasexcellent. I also noticed effective use being made of quite shallowdepth of field - in which the subject is in sharp focus while nearer ormore distant objects weren't. Finally I think this film has some of themost natural (and therefore most satisfying) 3D effect I have seen -which is apparent as much in the ordinary interior and exterior scenesas in dancing parts. All in all I think this is a very enjoyable filmthat might very well give you a whole new perspective on what the basicconcept of dance ought to be.
Sensational dancing, funky music and romance all play their part in this upbeat, crowd pleasing film about passion and dreams. A cut above the usual dance movie, there's a twist to this story
This movie is really a big waste for time , the story is a big looklike Step Up , a Street Dance Crew training in ballet school and someof ballet dancers join the crew , but here comes the difference 1- Ithink Street Dance must be on Hip Hop music but I don't know what thedirector was thinking by making them dance on this music , awful .2- You can't compare this with Step Up , the dance is not good at alland the story is not good as Step Up .3- The Romance in this movie is really disappointing .4- If you saw the last 15 minutes of this movie you be verydisappointing because you wasted your time on this movie
Clearly, this movie is meant to be dance over story. As such, leave your brains at the door and enjoy the pretty people dancing.
For a minute this looks like another American film that just can't waitto jump onto the 3D bandwagon, and taking along the teenage dance filmfan demographic with them. But surprise, it's a British film, and theBrits can street dance just as well, going heads up with yet anotherupcoming American dance film continuing the Step Up franchise, alsopresented in 3D.So is this new three dimensional format any good for this genre? Thereare a few moments and scenes here specifically crafted with 3D in mind,such as the tossing of items toward the screen, from hats to a busyfood fight in a school canteen. There's also some jarringly addedbullet-time choreography during one of the street dance battles in aclub, but the real treat here is for that depth of field when we sitaround and admire the precision-timed and energetic dance choreographyfrom procedural balletic moves to raw, improvisational street dancing.But this film does go the distance to explain and show the basics 101of street dance, since it has characters from different camps puttogether to try and influence one another, and from their initialadversity come craft something unique from its diversity. All thesethanks to Charlotte Rampling's Helena, a ballet teacher looking toinfuse some spunk, energy and drive into her lethargic ballet studentswho are looking to impress some judges for entry into the prestigiousRoyal Academy of Dance.At the opposite corner, we have a crew looking forward to theirparticipation in the UL Street Dance Competition finals, only for theirleader Jay (Ukwell Roach) handover the reins to his girlfriend Carly(Nichola Burley) who has to step up to the plate and assert her ownleadership style in the crew's final lap to glory. To make mattersworse, she has a lack of EQ with her teammates save for a few coresupporters, and has to gather logistics from scratch, hence a marriageof strange bedfellows when she takes up Helena's offer.Simply put, the story's very typical of dance films, with the usualthemes of clashing of cultures, and to learn from each other'sdifferences. Much like a Zero to Hero story with the usual clichÃ©trappings involving romance, betrayal and friendship, with that dash ofcomedy, eye candy cast and of course, authentic street dancing movesunseen (at least to me) put on the big screen, made to come alivethrough 3D technology properly done. You'll come to expect that usualbig bang finale where the fruits of the characters labour become themoney making showpiece that the teenage crowd will line up for, andprobably emulate, and it's not hard to see how this cannot go down thatpath of glory.It's something that street dance enthusiasts, and they're growing bythe numbers everyday, will embrace and flock to the cinemas for, andhey, the fusion of ballet and street dancing elements does pose anintriguing proposition. But after all, it's not about the techniquesand styles used, but that of the human spirit of expression andperseverance, practice and camaraderie that ultimately soars above all.Recommended!
You may have seen the Julia Stiles film Save the Last Dance, well thisis pretty much the same premise, but concentrating on the modern streetdance theme in Britain. Basically, in inner London, young dancechoreographer Carly (Nichola Burley) has her street dance crew Jay 2 O,formed with her boyfriend Jay (Ukweli Roach) who has decided to moveon, causing tension to break up. They also lose their place topractise, meaning they need to raise money for a real location beforethe big Streetdance competition final. Then Carly finds the localballet school, and get the place for practise with permission fromteacher Helena (Charlotte Rampling). There is only one condition toadhere to keep the room for practise, Carly and the gang must helptrain the original ballet dancers of the classroom to join their crew.Carly slowly starts to fall for training and skilled ballet dancerTomas (Richard Winsor), who sticks up for her when they come face toface with a nasty and betraying Jay. It is after this encounter thatCarly decides they should not try to pretend anything but what theyare, doing ballet or street dance or whatever, they should bring thetwo together in a new and inventive routine. The competition final isannounced to be the day of the Royal Ballet auditions for students, andthe crew, with new name Breaking Point, try to compromise their way todo both. There is a little delay waiting for Tomas and the other balletstudents, but wannabe street dancer Eddie (George Sampson) gives themsome time, and they win the competition with a fantastic mix of streetand ballet. Also starring Frank Harper as Fred, Eleanor Bron as MadameFleurie, Patrick Baladi as Mr. Harding, Jeremy Sheffield as Michael,Teneisha Bonner as Shawna, Rachel McDowall as Isabella, Diversity'sAshley Banjo as Aaron, Flawless as The Surge and Jocelyn Jee Esien asDelilah. When you have brilliant acts like George Sampson, Flawless andDiversity from Britain's Got Talent in the cast and doing their stuff,you know you are going to have yourself a good film-going experience.The soundtrack, with songs like Tinie Tempah's Pass Out, Ironik feat.Elton John's Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer), N-Dubz - Strong Again andMadcon's Beggin' was also an inspired choice. I didn't think it was toolittered with stereotypes, I will admit apart from the food fight youforgot it was a 3D film, but overall, hardy any annoying breakaway fromthe key focus, its almost all dance, dance, DANCE, it is definitely adance drama film you won't be disappointed with. Very good!
I don't really like dance movies. Dirty dancing has its brilliantmoments, but that's generally my limit. So when was forced to seestreet dance 3d I was very depressed. But surprisingly i loved it! Itwas very enjoyable with brilliant dance, storyline, tension andromance. You don't get much better than that! It isn't as good as thegreat dance movie, dirty dancing, but it's better than all the othermediocre dance movies, like step up, you got served and honey all puttogether. Girls, drag your boy friends to see this film- he'll hate itwith a vengeance, but if you like dance, tension and romance, you'lllove it!
Foot tapping fun that makes the most of the third dimension.
Like a full-length version of Britain's Got Talent -- but in the best possible way.
'StreetDance 3D' is pretty much another dance movie of the current cropof recently released dance films such as 'Step Up'. Now, if one likesdance and energy, such as myself, they can enjoy this one. The story iseasily predictable and it doesn't have anything new to offer but I feltthat it was well told and the viewer does care for the characters.There's plenty of energy, drama and lightness to entertain. The actingof Nichola Burley and co is very good. Charlotte Rampling also does afine job as the encouraging kind-hearted teacher. However, thehighlights of 'StreetDance 3D' are the dance sequences. Each of theactors/ dancers give their all to the performances exuding energy,passion and love for music and dance. The refreshing and innovativecombination of ballet and streetdance is wonderful to watch. I didn'tsee the 3D version but I doubt that it would effect my liking.
Although the 3D elements did not add much of a dimension to theproceedings.... I found Streetdance... Energetic, Pulsating and aterrificly choreographed piece of cinematic entertainment - which willappeal to the "more mature audience" as well as its teen target market.The storyline revolves around Carly (Nichola Burley) and herStreetdance crew, who have to contend with the loss of their Danceleader and also discover they have nowhere to rehearse. With timerunning out, Carly must win the respect of her dancing troupe and finda suitable place to train for the final of the UK Street DanceCompetition. While delivering sandwiches to a local Ballet school,salvation and a glimmer of hope comes to Carly in the guise of theBallet schoolmistress, Helena (played by Charlotte Rampling). Sheoffers Carly the use of the school's facilities provided Carly agreesto instill some of the Streetdance intensity and passion into herlacklustre and classicly trained Ballet students. The result is aglorious clash of cultures, egos and temperaments.The dance routines from Diversity & Flawless etc were perfectlyexecuted and a joy to watch. And while it is not in the class of "DirtyDancing", Streetdance's energetic footwork and the "ballet" cross-overstoryline makes it standout from many of its contemporaries.Yes, there are relationship issues (Love and Distrust) between thedancers, but it's the StreetDancing - which covers every style ofdancing - that wins out in the end.A cross-over section of the"young and not so young" preview audiencewere already asking when is Streetdance 2 being released. (need I saymore?)
Oh. A dance movie - modern wiggly leaping about dancing to a soundtrackof rap, hip hop and bangbox music, with a story about streetdancersforced to join forces with a class of ballet dancers.Let's get something straight - I'm not a fan of dancing, neither balletnor street, and I'm fat and 57 - I don't do dancing (which may be oneof the reasons I don't care for it). Also I don't care for musicfalling into those styles. So why did I go and see it? Because it's in3D, and I'm a sucker for 3D.But d'you know, I really enjoyed it. There's nothing in it plot-wisewhich you haven't seen in a hundred other movies, but that didn'tmatter - it's a feelgood story about underdogs learning to worktogether and coming out on top.Some of the acting is a bit ropy, but it has two things workingstrongly for it. One is Nichola Burley. Her acting slips from time totime, but she conveys tough vulnerability well, and she is both cuteand hot at the same time. And the other is the dancing. It still isn'tmy thing, but by heck, it's impressive. And the final sequence is welldone.Oh, and the 3D isn't bad either.
Don't dismiss it as a cheap Brit copy of Save The Last Dance -- this stands on its own two feet and more.
I am not a big dance movie fan, but I have to admit this mix of thesomewhat raw energy of streetdance and the controlled grace of balletis enjoyable.First and foremost the brilliant streetdance choreographies are whatmake the movie worth seeing. The story on the other hand is mostly verypredictable and does not offer anything new. I also have to say, that Ithink you can just as well see this film in the normal version as therewere only two scenes with motion directly towards the camera. To methat is the only big difference the relatively new 3D technology makes.I always enjoy when objects or people seem to leave the screen and flydirectly towards me.In a movie where most of the time a lot of people are in motion, Iwould have expected more of that and think it could have been achievedeasily by using more different camera positions. Of course that is mucheasier in the animated movies, such as Avatar or How to train yourdragon. A few mouse clicks did the trick in those cases. But I guess asfilmmakers are learning to adjusts to this, we might see more true 3Dshots in the sequel.
Cheesy high-energy fun.
Deeply unoriginal yet utterly entrancing.
The plot was predictable with very few surprises, 'Step up style.' Theacting was not particularly special and it occasionally reached quitelow standards. Yet the movie as a whole still managed to be thoroughlyenjoyable. The second half was much better than the first.The Dancingwas fantastic from every aspect. All the characters were very skilled.Each dance was different and better than the previous one. This ofcourse made the movie what it was.and the 3D effects were good fun. Iwas always a step up fan and thought nothing could compete with it butstreet dance managed to. It was much better than I expected and isdefinitely worth seeing.
I always love musical movies, but what I never realized before is thatthere is one other category that I may love it as well as musicalmovies, it is dance movies! "StreetDance" is a perfect example oftoday's dance movie. The story just seems to be another repetition fromother similar movies. It's all about rebellion against establishment offormal institutions and it's also about how to express yourself. It'sthe whole elements that have been occurring since "Footloose" (1984) tothe modern breathtaking flick like "Step Up 2: The Streets" (2008), inwhich I think that it is still the best presentation of our time. Themodern dance movie is also always about traditional art-school dancerVs. freestyle street dancer, where on thiz movie is street dancers vs.ballet dancers. It is about Carly (Nichola Burley) and her dance crewwhich later named "Breaking Point". They have to mix together withseveral ballet dancers from The Royal Dance School in exchange forrehearsal place. Nichola Burley can deliver her character smooth enoughto take us into energizing mood with her unique British accent and someenthralling dancing moves as well. Thiz movie really put Burley intothe spotlight since last time I saw her in psychological thriller"Donkey Punch" in 2008. Other Cast members are Charlotte Rampling,Richard Winsor and real life professional dancer like George Sampson.Thiz movie is also featuring "Britain's Got Talent" stars, Diversityand Flawless. It is very exciting to observe how the recent streetdance style has evolved outside of dance studios. The movie issurprisingly directed by first time Directors, Max Giwa and DaniaPasquini. It is delightful and enjoyable movie. It's filled withfascinating choreography and heart-throbbing hip hop music. The popgroup N-Dubz said, "We Dance On".Visit My Blog on JONNY'S MOVEE : http://jonnyfendi.blogspot.com
The story is predictable and the acting is not always natural, but StreetDance 3-D is enjoyable to watch, thanks to the impressive dance sequences...and there are plenty of them.
