  • [New – 11/29] | Marina Antunes @ Row Three
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
    • Excerpt: Very probably the worst of the four, though not by a huge margin and “the worst Step Up movie” is not anyway a very meaningful statement one way or another.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: These movies are like the “Transformers” franchise, with dancing instead of robots. No one’s seeing it for the plot, characters, story, depth, dialogue or acting. Enough of that nonsense. People see these movies for the innovating and often energizing dance sequences. That is their strong point, and that’s where they succeed brilliantly.
  • Rich Cline @ Shadows on the Wall
    • Excerpt: The Step Up franchise has never been noted for its astute screenwriting, but this instalment sets the bar so low that even its bendy cast members would have trouble limboing under it

    • Excerpt: The danicing is fantastic, but the moment the dancing stops, it all stumbles into the howlingly ridiculous…
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: Nobody buys a ticket to see a Step Up movie expecting to hear Harold Pinter-esque dialogue or to decipher elaborate plots. That’s why they’re titled “Step Up” instead of “Speak Up” or “Think Deeply.”
  • Nell Minow @ The Movie Mom
    • Excerpt: This one leads off with a cheeky flash mob on a busy Miami street that is so joyously kinetic even the cars leap up to get into the act. Sean (Ryan Guzman) is a waiter at an upscale resort whose “Mob” is competing for the most views on YouTube. If they can just beat out the cute cat video, they can win the $100,000 prize. So they stage elaborate surprise dance numbers in hopes of attracting attention. Another is a truly spectacular event staged at a swanky museum gala with dancers camouflaged as parts of the paintings and sculpture so that they seem to bloom out of some magical garden of art.

    • Excerpt: Step up Revolution is dance pornography.
