    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    A sequel arrives for Valentine's Day with the unwieldy title Step Up 2 the Streets. If it performs as well, watch for "Step Up 3: the Sprained Ankle." show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Step Up 2 is one long, clichéd exercise in predictability with a couple of vibrant dance sequences and some unintentionally hilarious bad acting. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Unabashedly earnest, completely predictable and packed with enough high-voltage dance scenes to make any audience applaud. show more

    The wall-to-wall soundtrack naturally features plenty of today's leading hip-hop and R&B artists, including Flo Rida, T-Pain, Missy Elliott and Trey Songz. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Human-spirit cliches and all, the movie accomplishes job one: It moves. It also has a choice soundtrack, spiced by the likes of Missy Elliott’s “Shake Your Pom Pom” and Digital Underground’s immortal “Humpty Dance.” show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    So when it comes to rawness, realness or any other signifier of urban authenticity, Step Up 2 The Streets doesn't measure up, especially when compared with a grittier dance flick still in theatres, the Toronto-made "How She Move." show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The stepping is terrific and the climactic sequence, a knowing nod to the infamous Bollywood "wet sari" number, is a knock out. But the united colors of we-can-overcome cuties, predictable class conflicts and sanitized keeping-it-real bluster bring the story's intensely formulaic nature into the. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The current, much better Canadian movie "How She Move" has a more realistic grip on the racial politics of hip-hop-dance. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Much of the average viewer's time in the theater will be spent waiting somewhat impatiently for the high-energy climax. Catnaps are an advisable way to survive some of the slow spots. show more

    Glenn Kenny Premiere

    The reason for all this dull-to-offensive story stuff is, of course, the dancing, which has its moments but overall seems so calculated to impress that it loses all other reason for being. show more

    I think this movie was amazing! The acting, dancing, and music! The dancing was just so good. I watched the movie the first day it came out and rented the movie the first day also. I watch it all the time, ha i just watched it last night. But anyway, the movie was amazing. The music was terrffic! Seriously, i love all the songs! But dont get me wrong i love the first step up too:):):):)! I love all dancing movies. But i think step up 2's dancing was the best! Andie did amazing, and so did Rob Hoffman!

    I love the dancing and I love the music, but I have to say, other than that, this movie has nothing going for it. It has a ridiculously stupid storyline; same old sad song as always. Poor girl, broken family, dead mother, bla bla bla. The acting wasn't horrible, but I swear if I heard "the streets" one more time I was going to shoot myself. I get it, ok? I know she's some girl dancing in the oh so rough "streets", but man, do they have to keep saying "the streets" a million times throughout the movie?! I get it!!!!!!

    I loved Step Up but Step Up 2 is so much better. I was never bored during a single minute of this movie. The dancing and acting was amazing. Love the actors. Great Story. Can't wait to see Step Up 3D.

    Cute story, loved the scenery (since I'm a Baltimoran), and the dancing was awesome!!! Nice to see some new faces. Boy, can those kids move!!! Very entertaining with spectacular dancing!

    Worth the money. It's not a "wait in line movie", but compared with all of the turkey's being made lately, this one is good.
