Step Up joined the rest of the movie industry by getting released in 3D. At no point did a dancing movie need or deserve to be in 3D, but who am I to stop studios from making money. The best part of this story, which is the weakest of the entire franchise, is the inclusion of characters who have become a mainstay in all the films and how impactful they are to the overall story. By this time, we have all come to understand that these stories are generally weak, the dancing only keeps getting better, with the stakes get higher and higher with each new competition.
