An aspiring ballerina from a wealthy family learns some lessons about both dancing and life from a roughneck with soul in this teen drama. Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in a rough section of Baltimore, and has been in and out of trouble with the law most of his life. Finding himself before the judge yet again, Tyler is sentenced to 200 hours of community service, and he ends up mopping floors at the Maryland School of the Arts. Tyler catches the eye of Nora (Jenna Dewan), a gifted ballet student who is trying to incorporate hip-hop moves into her classical routines. None of Nora's fellow students seem to be on the same page as her, but Tyler is a talented street dancer with strength, moves, and enthusiasm. Despite the misgivings of the school's administrators, Nora persuades Tyler to team up with her for a major class project. Tyler gains a new self-respect as he gives in to the discipline of the dance academy, but he wonders if this new opportunity means turning his back on who he really is. Matters become all the more complicated when Tyler and Nora realize they're falling in love. Step Up was the first directorial credit for choreographer Anne Fletcher, who designed dance routines for the films Bring It On, She's All That, and Boogie Nights.

This movie was great! I must admit, after having watched Center Stage countless times, it was difficult not to notice the lack of turn-out (in the scenes involving ballet dancers) and other such dance-related details, but at the end of the day, dance is supposed to be fun, and this movie certainly achieved that. (To paraphrase Tyler: "Y'all talk about dance as if it's rocket science or something.") The opening scene juxtaposing the street dancers and the ballet students was surprisingly enjoyable, and worth seeing again and again.

I thought this film was decent. I will agree with some of the complaints I've seen about the acting in the movie. The script is filled with every cliché under the sun, and just when you thought that something unpredictable might happen, it doesn't. Right from the beginning, when a character's younger brother is introduced, I said to myself, "Please don't make him be the lesson learned". Let's just say that every teen romance and ghetto flick plot line is rehashed to the exact detail, without a whiff of originality. Channing Tatum performance was okay and not bad for someone who had worked for the Public Defender's Office specifically in juvenile court and plays his role as Tyler knowingly. In this movie he seems so insecure with himself until he hits the dance floor. At that moment he becomes the most confident person in the room because he has some serious skills. Nora (Jenna Darwin) just seems like your typical ballerina princess until she finally opens up about her life. The story is interesting enough to keep you in your seat until another dance scene. But, although the acting wasn't top notch I will say that the movie had an incredible moral lesson/theme if you will--about different 'worlds' coming together and how the view issues in life so differently. It also spends a lot of time on understanding differences in daily life and issues between both 'worlds.' In addition to this it teaches us about choices and accountability for our action. I also did enjoy the booming soundtrack. This may be the first film that would work better as a 90 minute music video, and save us from either uninspired dialogue, or mis-delivered dialogue. Sadly, even the dancing doesn't compare to previous dance films like "Center Stage", "You Got Served", and probably "Honey" but even that is stretching it. But at any rate, it’s one to see for yourself.

The best dance movie I've ever seen so far.SURPRISING, because I am not even familiar w/ this film until a friend told me to check it out because it is a dance film.I did.BREAK A LEG, as what I can say happened to me inside the theater.I don't have any expectations then yet when the film was about to start. When the film started, a soundtract was played.No signs of what the story would be like.But undeniable,just that soundtract itself,made me feel excited.Check out my review on their OST.The story was simple but made very clear to everyone.It did not focused on the dance alone, w/c is the good part of it, but it has a story that stressed how dancing could change lives.That dancing is not just for fun or gigs.It is something.CHEMISTRY, I watched this film because I am so into checking out how good or bad the dance moves would be,and lovestory was a bit away from my expectations. There may be, I thought but not that much.But I was delighted w/ the chemistry Jenna and Channing showed in this film. Channing was great.I love how he delivered his acting naturally .Like the one where Nora's mom(Jenna) saw her and Tyler(Channing) kissing. His reaction was so natural, like that would be the exact "on the spot" reaction of a guy once caught. Funny.No wonder why both of them ended up bein' together in real life. WHOA DANCE GROOVES,I haven't seen those dance steps from other movies yet. Aside from the fact that it is not so heavy-like steps where only professionals can do, but even non-prof can imitate.I even did one. The one from the party scene where Drew Sidora performed.That was the best part of the film, next is the parking lot scene.Cool.A nice twist was present in this film, too. The one where Skinny died. Too bad.Unexpected.And of course, what was the ending like? The finale dance presentation was the fruit of the characters efforts.Huh, impressive!!!Great!!! Like everything was so good.So much I loved the film, I watched it twice in a row.I give this film five stars!!!

Essentially, anything with Channing Tatum in it is amazing (abs!), but my friends and I loved it. The story line was amazing, and the characters are awesome. It also has its sad parts, so a Kleenex maybe necessary. But all the music makes me want to 'Step Up' and dance!

I have college age, high school age, middle school age, and elememtary age grandchildren and, I must say, that this is one movie that every age child enjoyed. They all sat with it and enjoyed it very much. I might add, that I, the grandmother, enjoyed it along with them.

Not an exceptional film in the grand skeem of things, but if you are looking for a light fluffy way to spend an hour and a half, it's perfect. The dancing is fantastic! The dance routines are amazing! The story is good, although it has been done before, and the acting is really pretty good. The soundtrack rocks! Channing Tatum really does something different in doing this movie, vs. the tough guy film parts he usually takes. Some of the supporting cast are the funniest and best parts of the film. Recommended for any one looking for a fun dance filled time with good music and great dancing. Fun times!!
