Step Up DVD Review

A guy from the wrong side of town gets a shot at dancing his way to the top. Sound familiar? Kidzworld reviews Step Up - find out if this flick can really step up to all the other dancing movies that we've seen before.

Step Up - Bad Boy Meets Good Girl

Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) is a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. For fun, he dances, plays hoops and breaks into schools and trashes them. This last hobby of his lands him in trouble, so he has to do 200 hours of community service by cleaning up the school he trashed. It turns out to be an elite performing arts school where rich kids study dance, music and fine arts. At first, Tyler's pretty bummed about his punishment, but when he notices Nora (Jenna Dewan), his after-school gig doesn't seem like such a chore.

Step Up - White Men Can't Dance... or Can They?

Nora's a ballet dancer who is consumed with dance practice (she has to perform a dance piece in order to graduate). When her partner gets injured, Tyler offers to sub in until her original partner is back on his feet. The problem is, Nora is classical ballet and Tyler is all hip hop! But this is what makes the movie so funny - watching a guy who is rough around the edges try to be graceful and do pirouettes! So can a guy who's never finished anything he started come through for Nora? You'll have to watch the movie to find out!

Step Up - DVD Features

Shake your booty to the new Step Up DVD! This fun disc includes deleted dance scenes, bloopers and commentary from the movies' stars - Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. If you want to improve your moves, you can also get some help from the Making the Moves featurette!

Step Up - Bottom Line

Step Up is one of those movies that you think is going to suck, but turns out to be surprisingly good. The general plot of the movie may be recycled from Save the Last Dance, but Step Up has different twists and turns and a lot more depth than you think it would. It's not going to get nominated for any Oscars, but it could possibly end up on your favorites list, especially if you're a Channing Tatum fan. Even if you're not, it's a great chance to see a big, tough guy dance around in tights!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
