I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece in dance but it is a feel good underdog movie about different styles of dance coming together for the greater good. It seems many people missed the plot and immediately zoomed in on technical issues as if they expected to watch a real ballet. Its a movie people, its a threequel. Just relax & enjoy it from that perspective. There were some really funny moments by the actor's and I was particularly watching for the first timer, Chloe Lukasiak. Honestly Chloe could have carried this movie. I was very impressed with her emotion & delivery. I was a little annoyed that she didn't get to dance in the final number but I get it, you had to show someone get cut so why not the youngster. A Gwen movie spin off is almost a must for as good as she was. Nice job everyone. I agree it lacked some character development and I didn't particularly like the slo mo dance moments but still, I thoroughly enjoyed it. We need a Gwen follow up next.
