During the final dance sequence after Monster emerges from the suitcase on the podium, the metallic cover disappears when Moose returns to dance with the people in the sand. As Andie walks up with the fire stick you can see she is standing in the sand. In the next shot she is on the metallic cover again. See more »

UK version was cut by the distributor for language to secure a "PG" rating. An uncut "12A" rating was available. See more »
Away from Miami into another dance competition that is. This is a direct sequel to the last Step up, which hadn't happened yet. The character Moose seems to be in all of them (and he is except for the first one, even if you could swear he was in every single one of them, like I did and thought), but other than that, there didn't seem to be a string/continuity apart from a story that seemed to be the same over and over again ... something a reviewer has stated here ... forgetting that Step Up Revolution tried to break the formula.
If that was successful or not we do get most of the same players (good guys) from the previous one, still looking for a job (and love apparently). And that's where this gets back to the classic story. With one minor "dent" if you want to call it that, which gets fixed by the end of it. There are some slick moves and I'm pretty sure some of the things will look great in 3D (only watched it in 2D though). Don't watch it for originality, only if you like the "genre"
