The Mob sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean, a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called "The Mob". When a wealthy business man threatens to develop The Mob's historic neighborhood and displace thousands-of people, Emily must work together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.

Step up took a step back
26 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the original Step Up film debuted it was a surprise hit and gave the world Channing Tatum, but no one ever thought it would become a franchise. After two successful sequels, it comes as no shock that they decided to churn out another one with Step Up Revolution. Much like the second film in the series, they once again changed up the cast, but also the direction of the dancing itself. Could this latest entry be as entertaining as the previous films or will it be the one that finally closes the curtain? Step Up Revolution follows a girl aspiring to be a professional dancer who falls in love with the leader of a flash mob dance crew. When a wealthy business man threatens to build a hotel in the neighborhood of the crew, they must work together to use their dance as protest art to try and stop him. If this story sounds familiar it should it was pretty much the same story from Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo with just some minor changes. The previous films in this series managed to stay pretty entertaining even without Tatum thanks to the great dance sequences and the likable talented Adam Sevani who played Moose. Sadly, he has taken a very distant back seat to this latest edition to the franchise. The cast leading this movie seem to really struggle trying to make this work. There is no chemistry between anyone and their performances were subpar at best. In reality though the dance is what people come to see in these films and usually can make up for that, but here even most of that is a bit off. Even with a rehash of a story that's been done hundreds of times, the thought of the flash mob dancing is a good one, but just not executed all that well. With the exception of the opening sequence and the final sequence the rest of the performances not only come off not all that entertaining, but even more so unbelievable. The majority of this film lives in the land of make believe and has no way of making the viewer believe that they could pull off what they did.

This is easily the weakest edition to this franchise with little to no redeeming quality. It's not the worst film ever made or anything and some fans of the franchise are sure to enjoy it, but just doesn't work. The end sequence, while also not being all that believable to pull off in the time they supposedly did it, still manages to entertain thanks mostly to some not so surprising fan favorites.
