STEP UP 4 REVOLUTION REVIEW - Yet to be Rated

  Step Up Revolution (also known as Step Up 4: Miami Heat, and previously titled Step Up 4Ever) is an upcoming American 3D dance film produced by Step Up 3D director Jon Chu and directed by Scott Speer. The fourth installment in the Step Up film series and set for theatrical release on July 27, 2012, it stars Kathryn McCormick from the sixth season of So You Think You Can Dance and will feature choreography by Travis Wall. Unlike the first three films produced by Touchstone Pictures and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, this film is the first to be produced and distributed by Summit Entertainment without Touchstone's involvement.

Plot

Emily Anderson, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer, but soon falls in love with Sean, a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs. The crew, called the MOB, strives to win a contest for a major sponsorship opportunity, but soon Emily's father threatens to develop the MOB's historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people. Emily must band together with Sean and the MOB to turn their performance art into protest art and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.
