In Step Up Revolution, a group of teenagers and young adults formulate flash mobs to perform in order to win a contest. Eddy can do anything computer-related. For example, he once changes what a television is showing so that their dancing can begin. Penelope is like the DJ. Emily, a newcomer, is learning how to be part of The Mob. Sean usually comes up with places to surprise the public with their choreographed music. Sean’s life is all about winning the contest.
One day, though, Sean is in a restaurant and hears from his friends that the developers he is working for are hatching a plan to tear down his neighborhood to build a luxury hotel complex. He doesn’t know what to do, until Emily says something very wise: “Enough with performance art. It’s time for protest art!”
The group begins weaving protest against the destruction of Sean’s neighborhood into their flash mob performances. Can they win the contest and convince the developers to change their minds before it’s too late?
The best part of the movie is a flash mob in an art museum. All of the dancers are wearing clothes to camouflage with the art. Then the music comes on, and they move away from hiding as their surprise dancing unfolds.
I would not recommend this for anyone under eight years old, as the movie contains a small amount of foul language and a few instances of mild violence. However, Step Up Revolution is a great movie for anyone eight or older. It is almost impossible to leave the theater grumpy!
