Dance movies have something thrilling about them and Step Up Revolution offers just that, and some competition too as youngsters pull off some dance strokes that would get you a place in a physiotherapist’s clinic if you tried them out. This is the fourth installment in the Step Up film series. In this one ‘the Mob’ sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily has just gotten to Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer.
But besides dance, love is on its way and Emily meets Sean who she falls in love with. Sean is a dancer too and a leader of ‘the Mob’ dance troupe which has cut its name doing cutting-edge flash mobs. But Emily’s wealthy father is planning to displace thousands of people in the ‘the Mob’s historic neighbourhood. How will ‘the Mob’ take the news of this development?
In this dance and drama movie are several songs like Undone by Haley Reinhart, Words by Skylar Grey, Buyou by Keri Hilson featuring J. Cole that was first released on Keri’s second album No Boys Allowed, Dancing by Elisa, Monday by Nalepa and Shut The Lights Up remixed by Ricky Luna.
