Step Up: All In Review


Good

Step Up movies are known for their trite, formulaic plots and eye-catching dance set-pieces, and this instalment in the series certainly won't disappoint the fans. What makes this one slightly more fun is the fact that the filmmakers remember not to take anything quite so seriously. The melodrama is undercut with sardonic humour, the gyrations of the plot are so obvious that the script doesn't even bother to mislead us, and the dance scenes are fantastically over the top.

After The Mob dance crew conquered Miami in Step Up 4, they moved to Los Angeles, but found fame rather fickle. When they lose another job to their rival Jasper (Stephen Stevo Jones), head of The Grim Knights, they decide to go back home. But Sean (Ryan Guzman) has nothing to return to, so opts to stay, even though it means working as a cleaner at a salsa studio. This helps him reconnect with Step Up veteran Moose (Adam Sevani), and together they concoct a plan to form a new crew and enter the reality TV competition The Vortex, hosted by the preening Alexxa (Izabella Miko). With Moose's old pal Andie (Step Up 2's Brianna Evigan) on board, they bring together an appropriately eclectic team, which they name Lmntrix. And they head to Las Vegas for the big show.

It hardly needs to be said that Lmntrix are on a collision course to meet both The Mob and The Grim Knights in the final rounds. So with no suspense in the plot we can sit back and enjoy the dancing. And the choreographers have taken the Vegas theme to heart, designing routines that are more focussed on subtle power moves than street intensity. So each successive routine looks like another themed Cirque du Soleil number, building to a climax that will boggle the mind. Fortunately, all of this is directed with a light touch by choreographer Trish Sie, so it's easy to sit back and laugh with the cast rather than at them for a change.

Step Up: All In Trailer


'Step Up: All In' serves as the fifth instalment of the 'Step Up' franchise which will see Sean Asa forming a new dance crew to enter eccentric dance competition The Vortex, after failing a dance audition. Should they win the competition, they will receive the ultimate prize of a three year contract in Vegas, however the competition is fierce, so our protagonists will have to show their best moves if they're going to win.

'Step Up: All In' will feature characters from each of the previous 'Step Up' films such as Sean Asa (Ryan Guzman) of 'Step Up: Revolution'; 'Step Up 2: The Streets' protagonist Andie West (Briana Evigan); Camille Cage (Alyson Stoner) who featured in 'Step Up' and 'Step Up 3D'; and Moose (Adam G Sevani), a character in 'Step Up 2: The Streets', 'Step Up 3D' and 'Step Up: Revolution'. 

Trish Sie has directed the film; her first full length directorial, having only previously directed the short film 'Long Socks' and Ok Go videos 'Here We Go Again' and 'OK Go: Oh No Special Edition'. Sie has previously done choreography for the 2011 films 'God Bless America' and 'The Future', and she also won a Grammy for her work on 'Here We Go Again'. The film is produced by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot, who have produced all the previous 'Step Up' films.

Step Up: All In Trailer


The stakes are high in the latest addition to the 'Step Up' franchise as characters both old and new unite once more for possibly the biggest dance competition of their lives. They must work together if they want to win an epic dance battle to be awarded with their own show, and following dramatic events in 'Step Up Revolution', all Sean wants in the dance community is peace. Unfortunately, that proves to be a little more difficult than he first thought when he reintroduces Andie into the mix and the pair of them find themselves at loggerheads over who's going to be the crew's leader. With tensions within the group and the pressure to go all in and pull some incredible moves out of the bag, will they hold themselves together long enough to win that chance in a lifetime show?

Age Of Heroes Review


Weak
Ambitiously tracing the story of Britain's first Special Forces mission, this film's shoestring budget is just far too apparent, making it impossible to take seriously. But it has its moments.

In 1940, Captain Jones (Bean) is assigned to lead a clandestine mission into occupied Norway to capture German technology that could turn the tide of the war. He recruits a team of crack commandos, including the brave hothead Rains (Dyer) and the Norwegian-Yank Steinar (Hennie). But they have a very rough landing in Norway, their spy contact (Miko) isn't who they expect and the ruthless Nazis quickly catch up with them. Can they get in, do their job and get out? Or will they need plan B?

Save The Last Dance 2 Review


OK
Turns out it wasn't quite the last dance last time. Izabella Miko (one of the ladies from Coyote Ugly) steps into Julia Stiles' size 0 leotard for this sequel, which has Sara now attending Julliard to become a ballerina... while of course still indulging her passion for hip-hop dancing. She's broken up with Derek (Sean Patrick Thomas in the original) and is now courting a stand-in professor at Julliard (Columbus Short).

All the facets of similar films (from Fame to Center Stage) are here: An evil headmistress (Jacqueline Bisset), a horny roommate (Aubrey Dollar), and endless discussion of how hard it is to be a dancer for a living (no argument there). But the film retreads the original Dance pretty much completely, right down to Sara's interracial romance and her struggle for acceptance in the urban, hip-hop scene. While Miko is a fine (if quirky) actress, she doesn't have the natural, girl-next-door charm of Stiles, though ironically the angular, Polish beauty does make for a more credible ballerina.

The Forsaken Review


Weak
Reworking an old genre is one evil beast of burden. It takes a skilled scriptwriter and a clever director to make a tired genre plausible once again. Alas, both the writer and the director fail miserably with the forgettable vampire farce The Forsaken -- an annoying one-two-three punch of crappy acting, shoddy scriptwriting, and poor direction.

Sean (Kerr Smith), a struggling film editor for a B-movie studio, heads out onto the road from LA to deliver a vintage Mercedes and attend his sister's wedding in Florida. Along the way, he picks up Nick (Brendan Fehr), a hitchhiker with a lame beard who sweats profusely and holds a hidden agenda. During a rest stop, Sean and Nick pick up a dazed girl named Megan (Izabella Miko), an apparent vampire victim who was left for dead by a nightcrawler gang roaming the countryside.

The Forsaken Review


Bad

My favorite part of every modern vampire movie is the inevitable scene in which the vampire leader (if the bloodsuckers are the protagonists) or the vampire hunter (if they're the antagonists) explains to an uninitiated character that all the popular myths about vampires are completely inaccurate.

"Here's the truth" they always say, then go on to explain the vampire rules made up to fit the plot shortcomings of that particular movie.

In "The Forsaken" -- a glossy, gory, half-heartedly hip attempt to remake "The Lost Boys" for the "Coyote Ugly" generation -- the ghouls are little more than Gap models with faded tans. They don't have fangs, they don't have any supernatural powers to speak of, and they're too lazy even to kill with a good old-fashioned bite to the jugular. They generally just shoot their prey and quaff their fill of plasma from the bullet wound. What a bunch of slackers.

Coyote Ugly Review


Weak

The latest paint-by-numbers cinematic mind-number from uber-slick schlock producer Jerry Bruckheimer ("Gone in 60 Seconds," "Armageddon," "Con Air," etc.), "Coyote Ugly" is can be summed up in three words: "Flashdance" meets "Cocktail."

Piper Perabo ("The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle") -- a wide-eyed, bee-stung beauty from central casting -- is the movie's generic ingenue, a girl named Violet from small town New Jersey who moves to New York to pursue her dreams of being a songwriter for "Whitney, Mariah, whoever..." Of course, even though she grew up just down the turnpike from Manhattan, she's as naive as a farmer's daughter and learns the hard way that peddling your demo tape to snide receptionists at record label offices isn't going to get you anywhere in the Big City.

So instead of becoming an instant music biz success, Violet finds herself working at the meat packing district's wildest road house, Coyote Ugly.
