Deadly Doll's Choice Baltimore Edition: Step Up 2: The Streets (2008)
If the plot of Step Up Number Two Colon The Streets sounds like every teen, urban dance movie you've ever heard, then congratulations, you can imagine practically every twist and turn that the break neck world of break dancing can throw at you. Perhaps I'm just an old fogie. All this film made me do is long for Beat Street and Breakin', and I will be the first to tell you that those are not good movies. They're nostalgic, funny, entertaining, but not good. That makes Step Up Number 2 Colon The Streets exactly the same, minus the nostalgia factor, but I could see The Streets being someone half my age's Electric Boogaloo. The dancing, which should be the film's best feature, was cool at points, but it was hard to tell where skill ended and movie magic began. I've seen dance crews on TV and live which have impressed me, but the movie routines didn't really get me going.
