Critic Reviews

Consensus: Step Up Revolution treads familiar territory by surrounding its lively and kinetic dance sequences with a predictably generic story.
  • It's equal parts 'Flashdance,' 'Burlesque' and 'Lambada', all parts ludicrous - but we aren't here for the story any more than we watch Béla Tarr for the salsa numbers. More...
  • There's too much color and energy and frenzy in this movie to discount it entirely, but it has a disconcerting tendency to undercut its best notions with some singularly awful moves. More...
  • With the most wooden leads of the series to date - an MMA fighter and a "So You Think You Can Dance" alum - the drama between the dancing has never felt more interminable. More...
  • "Step Up: You've Seen All This Before" would be more accurate, but Summit Entertainment's marketing department knows that wouldn't help sell tickets. More...
  • Delivers plenty of spectacular fancy footwork in what is otherwise a flat-footed fantasy. More...
  • 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. More...
  • 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. More...
  • There isn't a franchise around that matches the kids' moves in the Step Up series. We just need a better reason to dance along. More...
  • No one goes to a "Step Up" movie for the plot or the romance. Only the dancing matters here. More...
  • It seems only fair to start with the one thing that's right with it: It's not dead. It should be, but it's not. More...

  • It's almost adorable how stupid this movie is.

  • With the high school dance scene played out, Step Up: Revolution attempts to do something new but ends up devolving into pretentious trite. A...
  • Step Up Revolution was exactly what I expected to be walking into the theater, another cliché and predictable dance flick with great dance moves but...
  • More of a revulsion than Revolution, Step Up 4 doesn't have any new moves but it does have heart...oh wait, heart's not the word--soullessness, that's...
  • Disappointing. By far the worst one.
