Storyline

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.

There's no reason you won't enjoy this one!
3 August 2012 | by jayteerthSee all my reviews

Step Up Revolution is a must watch if you are street dancing fan. Dancing gets just better and political here! Tight moves, fancy footwork, blasting beats, spectacular group numbers n backdrop of glitzy Miami... There's no reason you won't enjoy this one. Oh yeah, someone knows how to take full advantage of 3D, from the opening scene to the end credits. Kudos to "The Mob" n entire crew. Must mention, the magic man in the background is our own Shaamak Davar. Overall, I would call it a triumph of sheer spectacle! Yes, my review doesn't go with the critics because what critics don't understand is, they don't make these things to win awards, they make them so we can have fun watching!
