Movie Review: ‘Step Up Revolution’ Introduces Flash Mobs to Miami

Step Up Revolution opens on July 27 and movie-goers may choose to view this flick in 2D or 3D theaters.

If the question in your mind is "Who is the Mob?" you will want to catch this new release on Friday, July 27. Kathryn McCormick and Ryan Guzman co-star in the fourth installment of the “Step Up” series and this time around the stage is set in the beach town of Miami.

In this feature Guzman leads an organized, choreographed flash mob through town shooting scenes to upload to a YouTube competition in an attempt to win a large amount of cash. Romance sparks when Sean meets Emily, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, who is in town for the summer and dreams of becoming a dancer.

The reviews on this one are mixed so you’ll have to make up your own mind. Here is what some top critics are saying about this new release:

"Step Up Revolution" taps into the dance "flash mob" phenomenon and moves to Miami to give us the sunniest and most entertaining of these kids-gotta-dance musicals.” – Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

“Revolution’s mix of choreography, contrasting modern dance and street-style performance that incorporates hip-hop, step, acrobatic moves and Cirque du Soleil-style aerial stunts, forms an energetic, constantly shifting mosaic.” – Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter

"Step Up: Revolution" is the fourth of the "Step Up" movies, a series of unconnected stories that serve as showcases for the kinds of young stars who sincerely hope they'll soon be in better movies. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

“But as wonky as the film may be, its anything-goes attitude can be infectious, never more so than in a climactic routine that simply throws everything against the wall, not waiting around to see if it sticks.” – Andrew Barker, Variety

This movie is rated PG-13 for language and scenes with suggestive dancing.
