Young love and dancing for a cause heat up Miami in Step Up: Revolution. Check out our movie review!

By: Lynn Barker

Romeo/Juliet, rich girl, poor boy, you know the drill but add some amazing flash mob dancing in 3-D and you’ve got a reason to get your dancin’ freak on at the movies!

Flash Mob Street Action

Movie opens with what looks like some 20-somethings in classic, low-rider muscle cars sittin’ in gridlock on a Miami street. Before you know it, they are out of their cars and dancing up a storm. Some other drivers are thrilled and some are annoyed but, dang… it’s fun and colorful. This crew always leaves behind some kind of artsy sign announcing that they are “The Mob”.

Waiter “Romeo” Meets Society “Juliet”

Dancer Emily (Kathryn McCormick) hangs beachside at her daddy’s posh Miami hotel and after she and hot waiter Sean (Ryan Guzman) secretly of “The Mob”, meet cute, they find that they make one hot dance duo. Meanwhile, “The Mob” video of the street performance goes viral on YouTube and the crew hopes to win a big money prize for the most hits.

Emily Joins “The Mob”

Sean brings Emily into the flash mob crew despite best bud Eddy’s (Misha Gabriel) negative vote. As Emily and Sean’s romance grows, she tours his riverside Cubano neighborhood and “The Mob’s” performances get more and more popular and garner more hits. Will participation in the flash mob endanger Emily’s chances at joining a famous professional dance company?

Big Daddy’s Development

Emily’s real estate mogul dad (Peter Gallagher) decides to tear down most of Sean’s historic neighborhood to build a huge development and, when Eddy learns that Emily is his daughter, he feels betrayed by her and best pal Sean and decides to turn performance art into more violent protest art and the next mob performance wrecks a benefit and lands them in jail.

Will Romance and the Hood Survive?

Can Emily convince her dad to back off? Will “The Mob” use dance to change his mind? Will the neighborhood be saved? Hey, what do you think?

Wrapping Up

For those who say, “Hey, I’ve seen too many “Step Ups” already”, this one drops the constant storyline of “dance crew vs. dance crew” in secret street meets and adds the fun of a really well-rehearsed flash mob trying to get some cash, then some respect for their Miami hood.  We’ve still got the typical “opposites attract” romance but the lead lovers are attractive and fun to watch. 

Familiar faces from the other “Step Up” films appear (Stephen “Twitch” Boss, Adam Sevani (Moose) etc.) and you’ll probably get into the flash mob choreography as well as some more freestyle hip hop and some modern and classic dance combos. Colorful Miami as a backdrop doesn’t hurt and 3-D camera action is successful at drawing you in.

Both leading lady Kathryn McCormick (“So You Think You Can Dance”) and lead guy Ryan Guzman (former Calvin Klein model) have little to no acting experience and it shows but they make a cute, believable couple and we aren’t looking for Oscar performances here, just an upbeat, entertaining time at the movies and that certainly rates at least 3 stars.
