Review: STEP UP 4: MIAMI HEAT

Step Up 4: Miami Heat is the latest dance film in the Step Up Franchise.

There is nothing new in this film. It follows the dance film recipe. What does the dance film recipe involve?

Well first, you must find a boy who is struggling to make his way but his passion is dance.

He must then come across a girl who has lived a privileged life but feels like she hasn’t really lived because she can’t follow her real passion – dance.

Add tension and a sprinkling of romance. This is done by throwing a rich property developer father, who is about to tear down the boy’s neighbourhood, into the mix. The girl’s loyalties are now divided. Does she help her boyfriend or support her ever-loving dad?

Stir in tension between the boy and his best mates/dance crew by making them feel that he is choosing the girl over them.

Throw in lots of spectacular dance scenes. The more the better. In this case they are more than just art, they are protest dance scenes. The mob (as this dance crew is known) is not just going to let the developer take over their town. They will have their voice heard (through dance of course).

Make sure you have at least one dance scene that features water and very scantily clad dancers. Also add some slow motion sequences.

When it comes to the actors, make sure they have fittest bodies and awesome dance moves, acting skills is secondary to all of this and not always a must.

To piece the dance sequences together, throw in some dialogue with some very corny lines. Remember the story is not of high importance – it’s all about the dance sequences!

Talking about dance sequences, be sure to end with a big and emotional dance finale

Let the film run for no longer than 90 minutes and the result will be another dance movie that is only for the fans but will none the less make them smile.

If this recipe sounds like one you’d appreciate then Step Up 4 Miami Heat is ready and waiting for you at cinemas.

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
