The ubiquitous product placements tend to undercut the anti-corporate speechifying.

The dancing is the one thing - and I mean the ONE THING - that the film has going for it, and it's not showcased as well as it should be.

The story is sappy and predictable... But the dancing has a freshness and vibrancy that's infectiously enjoyable.

Many of the old tropes and gimmicks from the previous films are recycled into an all-too-familiar plotline: An edgy, streetwise guy falls for a classy, upper-crust sweetie, and together they dance their way past obstacle after obstacle.

The Step Up franchise has never been noted for its astute screenwriting, but this instalment sets the bar so low that even its bendy cast members would have trouble limboing under it

99.99% of Step Up Revolution is the most entertaining movie of the year so far. But oh, that 0.01%...

[A] poorly scripted, energetically performed hip-hop musical in which a team of young dancers take to the streets of Miami hoping to publicise themselves and get rich.

One can't help but feel that if the franchise hasn't jumped the shark it's certainly stepping over a finned killer fish with abandon. Damn. We've been served.

Great routines, silly story but it still delivers infectious, energetic 3-D escapism.

Plausibility aside, Speer's film is undemanding fun.

Director Scott Speer doesn't quite manage to ruin it all with his hyperactive editing. So just sit back and enjoy the choreography - and the year's most risibly idiotic plotline.

The Step Up dance franchise steps up for a fourth time, unashamedly and unselfconsciously sticking to a tried and trusted formula, here transplanted to Miami.

[T]he dancing fantastic... the sexy is unusually positive... [but] the moment the dancing stops, it all stumbles into the howlingly ridiculous...

The new leads are as factory‑farm gorgeous as ever, and the movie's alcopop fizz and snappy choreography save the day as usual.

Anyone who loves watching any kind of dance (and, based on the popularity of the TV shows "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing With The Stars," there are a few of you who do) will find something to appreciate and admire.

Nothing much here that you couldn't experience by watching 20 minutes of music television.

Enjoyable fourth instalment of the popular franchise that succeeds thanks to stunning dance sequences, appealing leads and a script that actually has something to say ...

The fourth in the series of frenetic dance films is as formulaic as ever.

All the dancing is mesmerising, with highly original set pieces, contemporary routines and a sort of revolutionary organised chaos that will definitely appeal to the teen demographic most likely to go and watch these films.

Step Up Revolution is an exercise in extremes--when the characters aren't busy crying over the same ol', same ol', they're dancing in some of the most unique, exciting setups ever produced that will make your eyes pop out of your head.
