Step Up: All In review

Stepping back

Taking its cue from the Fast & Furious franchise, the fifth Step Up raids the casts of the four previous instalments to assemble a new/old dance crew led by previous sequels Step Up 2: The Streets ’ Briana Evigan and Step Up 4: Miami Heat ’s Ryan Guzman. (Expecting to see Channing Tatum? You must be joking.) It then carts them off to Las Vegas for a winner-takes-all competition, with all the 3D crunking and Nike product placement the series demands.

As its title suggests, this is pretty much the last throw of the dice for a dance saga that more ran out of juice a couple of sequels ago. The set-pieces, though, still deliver the requisite pizzazz.
