In the office mob scene, when some of the dancers, dressed in suits, are descending the escalator at the start of the performance, the people standing by the railings at the top of the escalator disappear, reappear and move around between shots. See more »

After having attended a couple of the early Step Up movies I gave this one a shot to see if it might have evolved. The reality of it is: It hasn't evolved! Characters - especially the main ones - are bland and unbelievable - literally. The storyline couldn't be any more ordinary. Music wise the producers tried to incorporate Dub Step as the main music style, which didn't match the theme, nor the story.
The dance action whatsoever did accommodate the music, but missed the overall messaging purpose of "The Mob" by miles.
Cheesy, non erotic. That sounds all pretty negative. So I am guessing the movie addresses a very young audience. Shame.
