Bookmark and Share

Just watched 'STEP UP REVOLUTION' today in 3D. 

Directed By Scott Speer

Starring Alyson Stoner, Adam G.Sevani, Stephen Boss

STEP UP 4 is the next installment in the worldwide smash Step Up franchise, which sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer, but soon falls in love with Sean, a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting edge flash mobs. The crew, called the MOB, strives to win a contest for a major sponsorship opportunity, but soon Emily's father threatens to develop the MOB's historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people. Emily must band together with Sean and the MOB to turn their performance mobs into protest mobs, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.


A really creative movie with amazing dance moves. 

When I say that,  I mean their concept in comparison with previous Step Up movies. 
I would first give applaud to their extremely well-choreographed dance scenes, all the flash mobs scenes were really creative & synchronised. Even the opening scene began really well. 

Eventhough, a number of reviewers gave low ratings for this movie, I beg to differ. Yes, the story line might be a little bland, but the amazing dance scenes really cover up their simple story until you wouldn't notice the simplicity of the story but awed by the flash mobbing scenes. Love the office flash mob scene. (above) 

Watch this movie for the dance scenes and be amazed. Period.

Like I said, expect less on the story, but focus more on enjoying the dance moves as a whole. And I should watch previous Step Up movies, not necessarily, but they are few characters that are brought back into this fourth installment. 

Story-wise, I think it wasn't that bad as people said. In my opinion, it was just right to fit in for this movie. Yes, it may be kind of bland, but it wasn't all that bad. This film focused more on 'wow-ing' the audiences with the dances instead of the plot. So, like I said, watch Step Up Revolution for the flash mob dance scenes. 
Acting. Putting aside some other cliche factors, the dancers were really in sync. Kudos to that. 
Visually, the movie be entertaining for the viewers. Contains great dance moves with a good concept behind it. I watched it in 3D, but its not necessary though.
Music. Lots of current songs are used for this film. Really nice choice for the scenes though.

All in all, Step Up Revolution is entertaining for viewers who love dancing and also for those who seek for being entertained. 

My Rating?

Plot : 4/5
Storyline : 2.75/5
Characters*:4/5  (Amazing dance moves? 5/5)
Effects** : 3.75/5
OVERALL : 7.25/10.

I love all the flash mob scenes. The neat moves with the office attire and the green US dollars falling right in front of me! Awesome :) I hope the money was real and I could just grab some to buy some more tickets for this The art gallery/museum flash mob - it was absolutely fabulous. I don't mind watching it again!
