Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's equal parts 'Flashdance,' 'Burlesque' and 'Lambada', all parts ludicrous - but we aren't here for the story any more than we watch Béla Tarr for the salsa numbers."
‑ Guy Lodge, Time Out
""Step Up: You've Seen All This Before" would be more accurate, but Summit Entertainment's marketing department knows that wouldn't help sell tickets."
‑ Sean O'Connell, Washington Post
"The dancing is the one thing - and I mean the ONE THING - that the film has going for it, and it's not showcased as well as it should be."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"The Step Up franchise has never been noted for its astute screenwriting, but this instalment sets the bar so low that even its bendy cast members would have trouble limboing under it"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"One can't help but feel that if the franchise hasn't jumped the shark it's certainly stepping over a finned killer fish with abandon. Damn. We've been served."
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
"There's too much color and energy and frenzy in this movie to discount it entirely, but it has a disconcerting tendency to undercut its best notions with some singularly awful moves."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"Delivers plenty of spectacular fancy footwork in what is otherwise a flat-footed fantasy."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"The story is sappy and predictable... But the dancing has a freshness and vibrancy that's infectiously enjoyable."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"99.99% of Step Up Revolution is the most entertaining movie of the year so far. But oh, that 0.01%..."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Great routines, silly story but it still delivers infectious, energetic 3-D escapism."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"With the most wooden leads of the series to date - an MMA fighter and a "So You Think You Can Dance" alum - the drama between the dancing has never felt more interminable."
‑ William Goss,
"While dance purists won't be impressed by the energetic and athletic choreography -- the dancers have clearly learned routines but not necessarily technique -- date-movie audiences will likely want to go out dancing afterward themselves, and that's fun."
‑ Frank Lovece, Newsday
"Many of the old tropes and gimmicks from the previous films are recycled into an all-too-familiar plotline: An edgy, streetwise guy falls for a classy, upper-crust sweetie, and together they dance their way past obstacle after obstacle."
‑ Alaina O'Connor, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"[A] poorly scripted, energetically performed hip-hop musical in which a team of young dancers take to the streets of Miami hoping to publicise themselves and get rich."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Plausibility aside, Speer's film is undemanding fun."
‑ , Birmingham Mail
