Two street dance teams face off against each in the World Jam.  The Pirates have everything to loose as Luke is trying to keep his building that is home to many dancers he has taken in (and he dreams of falling his dream of making movies because he is editing a film about the dancers he takes in).  Moose wants to be an engineer, but he also wants to dance while he ignores the girl he loves- Camile.   Meanwhile Luke falls for a new hottie dancer Natalie.   The Pirates face off against their rivals- The Samurais.
STEP UP 3 is filled with some great dance sequences.  STEP UP 3 has a pretty silly script like STEP UP 2.   The first STEP UP is the only film of the series to have a halfway decently written script.   STEP UP 3 thrives on the dance scenes which are almost as impressive as the climatic dance scene in STEP UP 2.   The 2D conversion shows this is a film that does benefit from being seen in 3D since it looks like it was shot in 3D.   I just can't amke up my mind which of the three big dance offs I like the best since each one have some pretty groovy dance stuff (like the robot dancing man and the one dance sequence where water bursts up onto the floor).
If you want to see the deleted scenes, you need to see the blu-ray where the only decent extra on the DVD is the EXTRA MOVES dance montage showing extra footage and alternate angles of dancing in the film.   I don't care for the eight music videos or the making of the music videos.
FINAL ANALYSIS:  IF you want to watch some great dance sequences, watch STEP UP 3.  If you are looking for story like the first film, you will be disappointed.
