This one, again, is driven by the tried and tested formula that is cast in stone for all Step Up films.

Words like "dream," "hope" and "believe" resonate throughout All In, and while it seems cynical to discount them, it feels even more opportunistic to pretend they're real.

Just because a film is about dance doesn't mean it can function without a plot and a modicum of decent dialogue. Step Up: All In has neither.

Step Up: All In has a few dazzling sequences, including the final dance-off, that are effective as minor spectacle, but there's never reason to care.

The dancing is king. So if you can't stand the heat of competition, stay out of the kitchen.

When you remove the popping, locking, crunking and breaking from the equation, what is left is ... melodrama, shorthanded plotting, and lame characterisation.

Usually these films kick off with a splashy ensemble number to get everyone in the mood but here instead there's a deliberately deflating audition montage.
August 22, 2014
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.

Only a frolicking duet set to Bobby Brown breaks the monotony.

You know what's fun about old-school dance movies? They're happy. Even when someone is sad, you know that dancing somehow will make things right again.
August 11, 2014
Much amazing dance talent is again given dazzling showcase, but the sporadic bursts of cathartic joyfulness herein are fewer and further between than in any movie in the series.

"All In" is a lesser effort in this franchise, but not without its charms.
August 10, 2014
Without Channing Tatum, the appeal of this faltering franchise fades, except for the dance sequences.

Reuniting, or really, introducing, the gang is a gimmick. It's also self-destructive-cramming in all these characters chokes up the plot, and who watches a Step Up for the plot?
August 9, 2014
After its silly last installment, this series is now showing signs of growth and maturity but not enough to recommend the new feature.
August 8, 2014
When the cast isn't dexterously spinning, "All In" turns into a promotional video for Caesars Palace.
August 8, 2014
Even by the standards of this franchise-and this genre in general-"Step Up All In" is pretty laughable.
August 8, 2014
Whatever the other flaws, the dancing itself rarely seems to disappoint in these movies.
August 8, 2014
Offers up transcendent moments featuring some truly electrifying dancing, but to get to those golden nuggets you have to sift through mounds of terrible writing and laughable acting.
August 8, 2014
When the characters dance, they don't speak, and when they don't speak, Step Up has the potential to be diverting entertainment.
