Our Score
Even if you've heard the one about the high-stakes dance contest that Manhattan street performers must win to hold onto their communal home, you've never seen it done quite like this. Not only does it hold up as a 3D experience with dance moves, bubbles, lasers and slush puppies fired from the screen. But it also works in terms of the high-voltage power given to all the dance styles showcased - hip-hop, tango, updated Fred and Ginger routines and a literal flashdance finish. Jon M Chu is back from directing the second in the franchise, but does little with the banal bumper-sticker dialogue ("We're part of something bigger") or a predictable plot that includes star-crossed romance, in-house sabotage and last-minute victory. Yet none of that matters when the appealing cast of characters spin, break and move to the music, providing jolts of pure feel-good adrenaline in an irresistible package where the excitement and energy is palpable.
