STEP UP REVOLUTION (Scott Speer, 2012)


Sure, the dancing was great, but it was nothing different from what we commonly see on So You Think You Can Dance or even Mobbed. The group even came off as annoying and a complete nuisance (I know that was their goal, but I didn’t think it was meant for the viewers).

Everything clichéd in a dance movie was here, including a syrupy love story that tested my gag reflex. Did they really have to practice on the beach with the saltwater splashing on their diaphanous clothes? Paging Mother Lily and her white kamison.
