    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.”

  • Travis Nichols

    Isn't nearly as entertaining as it is predictable.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    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.

    Directed in humongous close-up by former dancer Jon M. Chu, Step Up 2 the Streets is suavely choreographed by Jamal Sims, Nadine "Hi Hat" Ruffin and Dave Scott.

  • Peter Debruge

    Rather than mixing classical and modern styles the way "Step Up" did, this hip-hop-powered sequel is all about new moves, which should keep the kids coming back after the pic's initial Valentine's Day crush.

  • Gregory Kirschling

    In a sequel that features the original's Channing Tatum only in cameo, a Baltimore teen (Briana Evigan, very winning) enrolls at an arts academy, leaving her street-dancing pals behind. So far, ho hum. But when she decides to form a new crew with her classmates, Step Up 2 the Streets improves considerably -- and it doesn't skimp on cool pretzel moves.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Jason Anderson

    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."

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Scores some serious points for its dance moves but does a lousy job of remembering there's a lot more to this big old world than moving your feet.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

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

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ruthe Stein

    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."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    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.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

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

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    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.

  • Felix Vasques Jr.

    The only reason to watch Step Up 2 the Streets, and I mean the only reason, is Briana Evigan.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    An earnest sequel to the 2006 cornball musical drama “Step Up,” mixing new characters into the original’s setting.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The central romance is terminally bland, while Evigan's woozy family melodrama seems borrowed from countless superior dance movies.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    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.

  • Josh Rosenblatt

    If we don’t stop these public dance-offs here and now, before too long we’re going to have an entire generation of kids seeking salvation as back-up dancers for Justin Timberlake

  • Desson Thomson

    Let's wait for a movie where they do get it all right: story, acting and dancing. It'll happen, just not this time.
