Film Review: Step Up Revolution dances to a predictable tune

At least the first Step Up film had eye candy in Channing Tatum as the fast-footed rebel who teamed up with a posh classical dancer.

Director: Scott Speer
Starring: Ryan Guzman, Kathryn McCormick

Also known as Step Up 4: Miami Heat, this is the latest in the series of formulaic dance/romance movies that boast some impressive dance stunts but little else. At least the first one had eye candy in Channing Tatum as the fast-footed rebel who teamed up with a posh classical dancer. Here we have the bland Guzman as the leader of a flash mob dance group who crosses paths with rich girl McCormick just as her dad is about to buy up the Miami neighbourhood our hero and his pals hold dear. Gosh, do you think she can help save the day? Will he help her get into a top dance academy? Is there love in the air for our toe-tapping duo? Could this be any more predictable?
