Review
I'm unfamiliar with the STEP UP series and never watched any of the other dance films of the series, MIAMI HEAT is a very solid fourth instalment and I guarantee that it'll give good entertainment. The movie's story is not bad and has a good romantic subplot, but I am amazed by its dance choreography which is really energetic and Michael Jackson would have been proud of it. MIAMI HEAT does deliver something and I would give four well deserved stars for this one.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
