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.

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.

In a world stuffed with film franchises, the Step Up series is clearly one of the smartest and deserves far more respect than it typically gets for knowing its audience so intuitively.

Sadly, the latest entry in the seemingly interminable franchise offers more of the same contrived scenarios.

Who knew dance could save Miami? Beyond the dancing (which is good), the story seems created for a 5th grader.

Basically, if you were to make a Frankenstein's monster from the premises of Tower Heist and Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, you'd get Step Up 4.

If you watch it just for the dancing you will be pleased; if you want a good plot and charismatic actors you will be disappointed.

Ultimately, we remain unconvinced of Step Up's anti-capitalist credentials. Especially after that hilariously inept Nike plug in the final scene.

The only reason people watch movies within this formulaic genre is to enjoy the well-choreographed dance numbers. On that note, this film delivers.

Very probably the worst of the four, though not by a huge margin and "the worst Step Up movie" is not anyway a very meaningful statement one way or another.

... the series rises again to the mediocrity it attained in the first two movies.

Nobody buys a ticket to see a Step Up movie expecting to hear Harold Pinter-esque dialogue or to decipher elaborate plots. That's why they're titled 'Step Up' instead of 'Speak Up' or 'Think Deeply.'

If you can enjoy the dance numbers and ignore the rest, it can be fun.

Using contempo flash mob dazzle with eye-boggling dance routines laced with sensuality ... the film delivers everything you expect and plenty more. It's hot in Miami and the dance moves sizzle

Fleet-footed yet formulaic and forgettable

The dancing just gets better with every entry. This one leads off with a cheeky flash mob that is so joyously kinetic even the cars leap up to get into the act.

These movies are like the Transformers franchise, with dancing instead of robots. No one's seeing it for the plot, characters, story, depth, dialogue or acting.

one of the great movies of the summer, because it provides the kind of pure, visceral enjoyment that audiences want... whether you're marveling at the ambition of its dance sequences, or thrilling at how well they happen to be shot.
July 27, 2012
The story is a collection of clichés but the actors are likable, good-looking, and know how to dance.
July 27, 2012
A feature-length music video would have eliminated the need for actors reciting lines and for a script that is aggressively stupid and incoherent.
