StreetDance 3D (2010)
there are much better dance films than this
firstly i'd like to say, like most people on here, i am a huge movie fan and have seen a huge amount of films of all different genres. i am a dancer myself and have always loved dance films ever since watching dirty dancing when i was little, i think i have pretty much watched all of them.
so when i heard about streetdance, actually a British film i thought, great, after all there is a lot of amazing UK dance talent. i was sadly very disappointed.
don't get me wrong the dancing was great, with a lot of reality TV (britains got talent) stars. but this wasn't a TV program it was supposed to be a blockbuster film with a story to connect the dancing scenes. i personally would have liked to have skipped through all the acting. it was that bad. i was actually physically cringing in parts- the ballet dancers were soo clichéd i actually laughed, all the dialogue seemed robotic with them and the lead actress. the most charismatic star would be george sampson, who forgive me i'm wrong, has never acted before!!
although the dancing was great, it was no more creative or outstanding than i have seen on TV shows. i have seen better choreography and wow factor in other dance films. serious lack of creativity.
most dance films nowadays are pretty similar story-wise but i just felt this could have been so much better, instead of just feeling like an insanely predictable poor (British) man's step up 2. the lead actress just didn't feel edgy or believable, it felt like she was a nice northern girl pretending to be 'street'. they could have gone for a real urban London feel- a crew from a rough part of London maybe trying to escape. maybe drugs/crime being a factor- anything more imaginative than this!! also the ending would never happen so it makes the film seem silly.
best parts- soundtrack- great British music.
Not as good as it could be but well worth a watch
This real life story of human spirit is so amazing I don't think any film made about it could ever be that bad. That said it does have a 'tv film' feel about it and in parts the dialogue and acting seems quite cheesy and cringing! I don't think their suffering was portrayed as terrible as it would have been or what a total desperation and last resort the cannibalism was. Apparently in real life they were so desperate before they got to that point that they tried eating the leather and looking for straw in the chairs. This wasn't shown in the film. They all run outside cheering when they are rescued, not looking as ill as they actually were at that stage in real life.
I would love this film to be remade now- I think it would be brilliant and a huge blockbuster with the special effects for the plane crash, avalanches, etc.
It is still as I said an amazing story so well worth seeing.
