Has a thumping soundtrack and a range of enthralling dance sequences.
This could very well be the easiest review I've had to write. Do you like dancing? More particularly, do you like street dancing? However you answer this will determine if StreetDance 3D is for you. There's not much more to it really.
Those who enjoy eclectic, off-the-wall break-dancing will have great fun with the plethora of set pieces on offer here, especially the routines performed by previous Street Dance Championship winners The Surge (clearly a real-life dance group) who were engrossing to say the least. On the flipside, if you replied no to my previous question then perhaps you should steer clear. You won't be able to look past the atrocious acting – everyone from b-girl wannabe Burly to the sincerely out of place Rampling to the total cheeseball Winsor are on extremely poor form – the wafer-thin plot or the laughably rubbish dialogue all for the sake of some killer moves.
Strangely enough this is the first British 3D film to be produced. Thankfully it wasn't just tacked on at the end similar to what we saw in Clash of the Titans or The Final Destination, but the movie was actually filmed in digital 3D, thus utilising the feature to decent effect. It's arguable that a flick like this overly benefits from the extra dimension, however the additional depth is definitely noticed in a few of the dance segments.
With a thumping soundtrack and a range of enthralling dance sequences, StreetDance 3D could be the perfect no-brainer movie for you.
3 out of 5 (1 - Rubbish, 2 - Ordinary, 3 - Good, 4 - Excellent, 5 - Classic)
