By now, four movies into the "Step Up" franchise, viewers should know that it's all about the dancing so things like plot, acting and connection to the previous films take a back seat. But "Step Up Revolution" takes that to ridiculous extremes.
The movie centers on The Mob, a group of flash-mobbing Miami street dancers who tie up traffic to perform in-your-face routines. The Mob's founders, poor-but-honest Sean (Ryan Guzman) and Eddy (Misha Gabriel), are trying to generate 10 million hits on YouTube to win a $100,000 contest.
But when a developer (Peter Gallagher) intends to bulldoze their neighborhood to put up a high-rise complex, The Mob takes on the mission of street-theater protest, providing the Occupy Wall Street movement what it never had: choreography. Meanwhile, Sean falls for Emily (former "So You Think You Can Dance" finalist Kathryn McCormick), an aspiring dancer who's also the developer's daughter, driving a wedge between Sean and Eddy.
