What a train wreck...and well beyond the expected train wreck. The first two, were surprisingly better than they had any right to be. Sweet and human moments flitted through what were essentially 90 minute long dance music videos. The robo-dancer was the most human actor they managed to find. The music was pushed to the background to make room for annoying robo-pistons, sneaker squeeks, and kung-fu sound effects. The "plot" (yes, those are finger quotes) was so bad, the movie couldn't even bother to pay attention it. There wasn't enough disbelief left to suspend by the time you get to the Gene Kelly "we are in love" scene. At least SitC2 had outfits you may have wanted.
