It takes just an enticing pair of Nike sneakers to lead NYU freshman Moose (Adam G Sevani) down the rabbit hole into a musical wonderland. Without warning, this economics-major-street-dancer is showing up a mean-looking mover from the House of Samurai and endearing himself to Luke (Rick Malambri), leader of a rival, more inclusive hoofer crew called the Pirates. This is jump-’n’-jive cinema done right, populated by actual, likeable dancers instead of Hollywood celebs trying too hard, and with cinematography to match. It’s possible that the use of 3D cameras forced director Jon Chu to compose his frames more rigorously. Technology aside, the film has an aura about it, an optimistic yet still complicated belief in people and in life that is in truly short supply. It’s a contemporary movie musical that makes you feel genuinely sky-high.
