Dude, prepare for a shock when you finally watch Step Up 3-D. As I mentioned in an earlier thread, the plot, characters, etc. are laughable. If you are indeed such a strong advocate for good plot, dialogue & acting, then you're going to see (like many others) that the only things worthwhile in this film are the dance sequences & the 3-D (gimmicks and all). This is a case where 3-D was necessary. You'll see. As for re-visiting old films, who has not watched a movie again after years passing & found that the story didn't hold up? This happens with all types of films & is normal. I think Comin at Ya! gave exactly what that title suggested. I'll say again, anyone who was looking for anything else otherwise shouldn't complain about the film; they should just complain about their choice to see the film in the first place.
