FILM REVIEW: Street Dance 3D

Directors: Max Giwa, Dania Pasquini
Release: 2010

This film is really easy to sum up; it is Step Up 2 but the British version. Carly (Nichola Burley) needs some dance space for her and her crew. A ballet teacher offers her the use of one of their halls, if Carly will include her ballet dancers,who have been criticised for not having any passion when they dance. Add a rival crew (played by Britain’s Got Talent runners-up Flawless, who are competent if not mind blowing), a very hot ex-boyfriend and a very un-hot new potential and that about sums up the 98 minutes that is Street Dance 3D. 

Basically a fusion of Hip-Hop and ballet, the film is fairly forgettable. Yet there are some memorable moments. Most notably the Romeo & Juliet ballet remix, which is both worth watching and a post-film search for the backing track. Diversity’s dance routine is awesome but just YouTube them if you really want to see what they can do. As for the return of former wonder kid George Sampson, he was actually pretty good. For the majority of the film, Sampson is the reject. The underdog, as per his time in Britain’s Got Talent, clearly always shines in life – with his dazzling individual dance routine finally garnering him some attention. 

On the whole, Street Dance 3D is a poor effort. The pointless 3D effects add nothing to the routines and the film would have been equally effective in 2D. I would advise that this film is not worth wasting your money on. 

Rating: 2/5
