Dove Review

When I was young there were many movies that protrayed dancers and great music. That seems to not be the case anymore. But this is a film about being part of a dance team and hip-hop music. I have not seen any of the previous “Step Up” films so I have no comparison to make with those. As for this one, it was enjoyable to me even though I am not usually interested in this type of music style.

As the main character losses his first team of dancers due to hard times, no new gigs, and not enough money, they want to return to their home. So he finds himself alone in the big town of LA. But when searching the Internet he comes across a new dance contest in Las Vegas, so he turns to an old friend Moose for help. Together they put together a new team called LMNTRIXS.

The danders go off to the “city that never sleeps” when they receive word that they have been excepted into the contest. With hard work they become one of the 4 teams in the finals. But it is hard when two of the other groups are both friend and foe. Sean’s old friends the Mob and a rival team that thinks they are going to win.

The film shows the ups and downs of being a part of this life style and the relationships that develop. But it also shows the importance of being part of a team and family. Unfortunately due to some content this film can not receive our approval.
