“STEP UP REVOLUTION” Movie Review. Jive up to the High-voltage Dancing and Pulse-pounding Music in 3D.


One look around at the eager attendees who attended the recent Press Preview of “STEP UP REVOLUTION” and you can well tell who’s the target audience.

This ain’t a film for any baby boomer. Not by the long arm.

It’s skewed towards the young and the dandy and is a feature that’s likely to rake better returns at the box office in appreciative Asia rather than in the discerning West.

“STEP UP REVOLUTON” is an arresting film that takes you through a new beathtaking revelation of the Street Dance steps.

It’s hot, with the high-voltage dance scenes and pulse-pounding music.

There’s music, power and passion of dancing that will have you up and moving with the beat of the energetic hip-hop.

If street dance is your thing, then this will surely go down as a treat. The predictable wafer-thin plot is an excuse to bring on the movie and to set it afloat.

It’s shot in 3D and  its all about spectacle and you bet no one goes to dance movies just for the plot.

  What’s better than seeing dancers alive and in front of you in 3D on the big screen. Right.

The story takes place against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily (Kathryn McCormick) arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer.

She meets Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called “The Mob.” They fall in love.

When a wealthy business man (Emily’s father) threatens to develop The Mob’s historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean to go against her father and work with The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art.

 But things are not as simple as they seem.

Maybe dance purists will not be impressed by the energetic stunts and athletic choreography, but everything’s conjured in the spirit of fun.

Just let your hair down and move with the rhythm of the hip hop street dance.

For this, you surely can’t go wrong.
