Consensus: Step Up Revolution treads familiar territory by surrounding its lively and kinetic dance sequences with a predictably generic story.

It's equal parts 'Flashdance,' 'Burlesque' and 'Lambada', all parts ludicrous - but we aren't here for the story any more than we watch Béla Tarr for the salsa numbers.

"Step Up: You've Seen All This Before" would be more accurate, but Summit Entertainment's marketing department knows that wouldn't help sell tickets.

Is there love in the air for our toe-tapping duo? Could this be any more predictable?

Alonso Duralde

There's too much color and energy and frenzy in this movie to discount it entirely, but it has a disconcerting tendency to undercut its best notions with some singularly awful moves.

Globe and Mail

Delivers plenty of spectacular fancy footwork in what is otherwise a flat-footed fantasy.

It provides exactly what its fans expect and want from it but even as an unabashed lover of cheesy, terribly acted dance films, this reviewer was shocked at just how enjoyable this one was.

With the most wooden leads of the series to date - an MMA fighter and a "So You Think You Can Dance" alum - the drama between the dancing has never felt more interminable.

While dance purists won't be impressed by the energetic and athletic choreography -- the dancers have clearly learned routines but not necessarily technique -- date-movie audiences will likely want to go out dancing afterward themselves, and that's fun.

The ubiquitous product placements tend to undercut the anti-corporate speechifying.
