It may not be a genre you enjoy, but there’s no bad-mouthing the Step Up series for what it’s trying to do. The stories may be painfully stupid, but the dancing is amazing and that’s what people come to see. The trailer for Step Up 4 has gone online and it has the great line “I want to break the rules.” Usually, dancing is legal. But you can break the rules by holding up traffic or disrupting the museum-going experience. There’s no point in rebelling if it’s not expertly choreographed.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Step Up 4 opens July 27th.
