The fifth installment of Step Up is back in "Step Up: All In" with introducing more inventive choreography from expert dancer crews and containing almost all-star member of the series (minus Channing Tatum of course) into a dance competition in L.A. The movie brings a first class and entertaining show that is wanted from their fans. All the dances and flash mob are taken beautifully that has already been a trademark from all the series and what differentiates it from other dance movie.
Unfortunately there's a contrary and unbalanced between dance and whole elements in this movie. "Step Up: All in" suffers with mediocre yet predictable storyline, horrible written script, forgettable chemistry and some average acting from it's entire casts. The movie focuses only on the Vortex competition and how their ambition and preparations to win this thing without care less about anything that would bring boring moments and reduce emotional feelings for the character itself. In other words, this film felt stunning when it related to massive movements with loud R&B soundtrack mixed but once it touches drama and storytelling stuff, it's just that awful. Overall, "Step Up: All In" isn't a game-changer of the series, in fact it's definitely just a similar movie from the previous franchise with this time L.A as the background. It shows never-ending competition that is so exhausting to see, but as long as it still delivers spectacle and great moves, it seems would satisfy it's fans and safely stick them from their seats until end credits appear.
