    Step Up Revolution has again found some of the most kinetic talents in the country.

    It's really just a dance movie, interrupted sporadically for PG-13 romance, bad acting, ridiculous dialogue and earnest "let's put on a show to save our homes!" spirit.

    This gang of highly skilled dancers (with the guidance of debut director Scott Speer) delivers a sequence of spectacular group numbers that truly pop in 3-D.

    The film busts a fierce move but never relishes the unique cultural essence that its gentrifying baddie threatens to snuff out.

Acting: Eh it's not bad I mean it is believable, but come on, Its not Inception. 2. Plot: It kept me interested with the girl and the father. then the guy and his brother. Its pretty good. 3. Music: They finally found dubstep. 4. Dance: As always the dancing is spectacular the best thing about these films. 5. 3D: I will say like the previous film the 3D does work however it just seems like the 3D only comes in for the dances and the opening and ending scenes. Watch if you want to be entertained but if your looking for something more I guess skip it. But if your a fan of dance this is your movie. Excpecially the opening and ending dance scenes.

    It's not about a complicated and thrilling plot, or a cast of incredible actors that make you believe every part of this is real. No, Step UpIt's not about a complicated and thrilling plot, or a cast of incredible actors that make you believe every part of this is real. No, Step Up Revolution is simply about intricate and intoxicatingly-good choreographed routines involving "mobs" of people. Taking on the phenomenon that became the flash mob over the past few years, Step Up is simply offering up a tribute to the times. Film critics: you're going to nit-pick this film to death. But if you are easy-going and know what to expect, the movie is definitely watchable. I did feel that they borrowed the plot direction from Step Up 3 and only tweak it slightly at times, but overall it's entertaining. If the franchise were to find some real substance in the story and write the dialogue a little better, it would be quite an experience. As is, though, Revolution is just passable. That okay for me, since I came to see some dancing. In Step Up Revolution, there are some of the most diverse and cool routines of the franchise. So if you've already seen the first three, why not see a fourth? Full Review »
