"No one goes to a "Step Up" movie for the plot or the romance. Only the dancing matters here." - Neil Genzlinger, New York Times

"Delivers plenty of spectacular fancy footwork in what is otherwise a flat-footed fantasy." - Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail

"Step Up Revolution treads familiar territory by surrounding its lively and kinetic dance sequences with a predictably generic story." - rottentomatoes.com

"The choreography is solid throughout, but director Scott Speer gets in his own way every time, relentlessly shifting camera angles to close-ups and reaction shots when he should be letting us witness the spectacle." - Sara Stewart, New York Post

"While dance purists won't be impressed by the energetic and athletic choreography -- the dancers have clearly learned routines but not necessarily technique -- date-movie audiences will likely want to go out dancing afterward themselves, and that's fun." - Frank Lovece, Newsday

"[Guzman and McCormick] zero acting experience - and it shows. Same goes for the first-time movie director, Scott Speer, who can't coax even a passable performance from his amateurish cast..." - Linda Barnard, Toronto Star

"Step Up: Revolution" is the fourth of the "Step Up" movies, a series of unconnected stories that serve as showcases for the kinds of young stars who sincerely hope they'll soon be in better movies. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Will the next "Step Up" tackle the cutting-edge trend of planking?" - Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

Movie Info

Step Up Revolution is the next installment in the worldwide smash Step Up franchise, which sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily (Kathryn McCormick) arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called "The Mob." When a wealthy business man threatens to develop The Mob's historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause. -- (C) Summit
