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.

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

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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