Step Up 2: The Streets

 (2008)

Step Up 2: The Streets Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

When rebellious street dancer Andie (Briana Evigan) lands at the elite Maryland School of the Arts, she finds herself fighting to fit in while also trying to hold onto her old dream of dancing with an underground Baltimore street crew. When she joins forces with the school's hottest dancer Chase (Robert Hoffman) to form a crew of classmate outcasts to compete in Baltimore's underground dance battle "The Streets," she ultimately finds a way to live her dream while building a bridge between her two separate worlds.

For more about Step Up 2: The Streets and the Step Up 2: The Streets Blu-ray release, see Step Up 2: The Streets Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Director: Jon M. Chu
Writers: Karen Barna, Toni Ann Johnson
Starring: Briana Evigan, Robert Hoffman (I), Will Kemp, Sonja Sohn, Adam G. Sevani

Step Up 2: The Streets Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Step Up 2: The Streets foregoes much of the ultra-vivid, super-saturated, high contrast look of its fellow dance film compatriots, going instead for a look that's a bit more gritty and muted, something perhaps more appropriate for the crime-ridden city that gave us The Wire. (However, as a born and raised Marylander, I should say that although the film was shot there according to IMDB, Baltimore is almost entirely unrecognizable here.) Many, then, might find the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer to be somewhat underwhelming. There are some poppy colors in the club scenes, and clothing looks brighth—if only to visually separate the dancers from their surroundings—but most of the movie looks dull and drawn back. Black levels are deep—sometimes too deep—but contrast is a little flat. This is the film's intended look, though, so I can't really argue with it. The picture is, at least, fairly detailed and sharp. There are a few scenes that look slightly soft, but in general facial texture is well represented and lines look crisp (and unaided by halo-inducing edge enhancement). Grain is thin and looks entirely natural—no DNR abuses here—and I didn't spot any real compression-related troubles. Like the film itself, the picture quality is at its best during the big finale—the scene in the rain—which shows a commendable amount of depth and punch.


Step Up 2: The Streets Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disregard the back of the case, which claims this disc has a Dolby TrueHD mix, as what you'll actually find when you boot up the film is an uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround track. (Not that there would be too much difference between the two.) During the dance sequences and the club scenes, this track sounds fantastic. Obviously, hip-hop dominates the score, and the songs are represented with palpable, chest-thumping heft—bass response will definitely wake the neighbors if you crank this one up—and clean high-end clarity, allowing all the nuances of the music to be heard. These scenes are also the most immersive; chatter fills the soundfield, the songs are bled into the rears, and there's a nice sense of being there, right in the middle of the club. The sound design is noticeably—and understandably—less pronounced during the quieter parts of the film. You'll still hear occasional environmental ambience—street sounds, crickets, a bus moving between channels—but it's never as active or involving. Dialogue, both during the drama-driven scenes and the hectic club segments, is perfectly balanced, clean, and discernable. If you want some help catching all that hepcat street slang, though, English, French, and Spanish subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
