About the Movie
DJ (Columbus Short), an amazing underground street dancer, hasn't been in college for a day before he's entranced by a lovely co-ed, April (Meagan Good). Working as a gardener to pay the bills, DJ doesn't fit in with the wealthier students around campus, but one thing does catch his attention -- the rival fraternity competitions known as "stepping." With April's help, DJ learns about the legacy and heritage behind the fraternities and decides to join up. Now part of an official step group, DJ must balance rehearsals, work, and school, while at the same time winning the heart of the girl of his dreams. With the National Step Championship drawing closer, DJ must learn to stop dancing as an individual, and to start stepping as part of a team.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film introduces too many elements, doubles back on itself, repeats and repeats the same information, starts and stops, includes needless tangential riffs, finds artificial means to stretch the running length and is in every way a flabby mess.
Rotten: The movie starts with furious team dance-offs, but these aren't as interesting as they should be. Camera trickery keeps slowing down or speeding up everyone's movements, which destroys the amazement factor raised by the documentary Rize.
Rotten: The moves can be remarkable, though ritually repetitive -- male chorus lines of adrenalized automata acting out anger, menace, pride, audacity or joy.
Rotten: The script, based on an earlier screenplay by a Florida A&M alum, accomplishes little -- it's basically Drumline, with dancing instead of drum corps.
