Step Up 4 - Miami Heat 3D

From the sublime to the ridiculous!

3D has now become standard for dance movies, probably second-only to animation in terms of genres that have “benefited” from an extra dimension. And so it is that 'Step Up 4: Miami Heat' isn't even the first film in the 'Step Up' series to be in 3D. 



The last film nabbed that honour, and was a distractingly pleasant affair. This effort follows suit, and whilst not taxing your braincells in the slightest, it still manages to entertain thanks to some creative dance routines and a catchy, summery soundtrack. 


Some of the familiar faces from earlier films cameo towards the end, but this is a largely new cast of young, attractive hopefuls doing their best to impress. Also noteworthy for Peter Gallagher's extraordinary eyebrows... now in 3D! It's a shame the filmmakers didn't make those beauties do a routine of their own. 


As 3D dance movies go... this ain't half bad. In fact, you may well get swept up in it all and have some fun. 


Release date: 10 August

Starring: Ryan Guzman, Kathryn McCormick, Misha Gabriel, Peter Gallagher
