Step Up Revolution, the fourth installment of the unmatchable series of Step Up, has taken the challenge of making a revolution with their art form.
Step Up Revolution kick starts with a racy chord as they catch the attention of the audiences from the very opening sequence. In the first dance piece, the troupe has incorporated many dance forms including hip hop, b-boying, popping, locking and even some quick twerking. The chemistry of the romantic lead, Ryan Guzman and Kathryn McCormick is amazing, and all their sequences together light up the screen. The dance sequences keep the audiences excited and make a perfect watch, the credit for which goes to the well choreographed moves.
The long shots in the dance sequences make optimum use of the 3D view, as they appear to be more crisp and precise. Each time, ‘The Mob' enters, they set the screen on fire.
Music by Aaron Zigman fits the scenes very well.
So there's dance, love and friendship and many more ingredients that make a movie entertaining. And, Step Up Revolution does enchant the audiences enough to keep them in the groove.
‘The Mob' is a full equipped dance troupe set up in Miami with their very own DJ (Cleopatra Coleman), hacker-planner (Misha Hamilton), dancer/special effects guy (Stephen Boss) and street artist who "tags" each of their events with "The Mob" (Michael Langebeck). Sean played by Ryan Guzman is the hero of this group as he initiates the dance revolution. Emily (Kathryn McCormick), who wants to be a dancer lands up in The Mob and directs the troupe to make a statement through dance.
Kathryn McCormick does an average job, while Ryan Guzman is slightly better than Kathryn. Misha Gabriel is good as the insecure Eddie but does not have much to do. Peter Gallagher is fine as the entrepreneur Bill Anderson.
Go watch Step Up Revolution if you love watching dance sequences. The acting and the story don't add anything much to the film.
