Michael and Jenny are a young couple who pass through a quaint little town in the mountains and decide to stop and check it out. Jenny is in love with the antique stores and Michael finds comfort in an attractive young woman at the local bar (unbeknownst to his partner of course), and the pair decide to spend the night at beautiful hotel they happen across. The hotel porter reveals to them that this is a place where many people escape to when they don't want to be found, and not long after that Michael starts experiencing some serious deja vu. Everything feels familiar to the point that he's sure they have visited the place before. Jenny seems immune to the town's eerie spell and pretty soon becomes concerned when Michael's experiences start to manifest as hallucinations. It seems that nobody believes that what he is seeing and hearing is real, though the people in the town definitely have a secret - and it's sure to cost him his life.

What if the world was a place where homosexuality was the norm, and being heterosexual was thought of as a sin? This movie focuses on two storylines. One is about a female quarterback named Jude who finds herself having feelings for a journalist named Ryan. They try to keep their relationship secret, but soon their affair becomes public knowledge and they face discrimination and bullying at every turn. The other story follows a young girl named Emily Curtis who, despite being told her whole life that relationships should only be between people of the same sex, finds herself falling for her classmate Ian Santilli. Unfortunately, some hetero-hating bullies are out to get her too.

Step Up movies are known for their trite, formulaic plots and eye-catching dance set-pieces, and this instalment in the series certainly won't disappoint the fans. What makes this one slightly more fun is the fact that the filmmakers remember not to take anything quite so seriously. The melodrama is undercut with sardonic humour, the gyrations of the plot are so obvious that the script doesn't even bother to mislead us, and the dance scenes are fantastically over the top.
After The Mob dance crew conquered Miami in Step Up 4, they moved to Los Angeles, but found fame rather fickle. When they lose another job to their rival Jasper (Stephen Stevo Jones), head of The Grim Knights, they decide to go back home. But Sean (Ryan Guzman) has nothing to return to, so opts to stay, even though it means working as a cleaner at a salsa studio. This helps him reconnect with Step Up veteran Moose (Adam Sevani), and together they concoct a plan to form a new crew and enter the reality TV competition The Vortex, hosted by the preening Alexxa (Izabella Miko). With Moose's old pal Andie (Step Up 2's Brianna Evigan) on board, they bring together an appropriately eclectic team, which they name Lmntrix. And they head to Las Vegas for the big show.
It hardly needs to be said that Lmntrix are on a collision course to meet both The Mob and The Grim Knights in the final rounds. So with no suspense in the plot we can sit back and enjoy the dancing. And the choreographers have taken the Vegas theme to heart, designing routines that are more focussed on subtle power moves than street intensity. So each successive routine looks like another themed Cirque du Soleil number, building to a climax that will boggle the mind. Fortunately, all of this is directed with a light touch by choreographer Trish Sie, so it's easy to sit back and laugh with the cast rather than at them for a change.

'Step Up: All In' serves as the fifth instalment of the 'Step Up' franchise which will see Sean Asa forming a new dance crew to enter eccentric dance competition The Vortex, after failing a dance audition. Should they win the competition, they will receive the ultimate prize of a three year contract in Vegas, however the competition is fierce, so our protagonists will have to show their best moves if they're going to win.
'Step Up: All In' will feature characters from each of the previous 'Step Up' films such as Sean Asa (Ryan Guzman) of 'Step Up: Revolution'; 'Step Up 2: The Streets' protagonist Andie West (Briana Evigan); Camille Cage (Alyson Stoner) who featured in 'Step Up' and 'Step Up 3D'; and Moose (Adam G Sevani), a character in 'Step Up 2: The Streets', 'Step Up 3D' and 'Step Up: Revolution'.
Trish Sie has directed the film; her first full length directorial, having only previously directed the short film 'Long Socks' and Ok Go videos 'Here We Go Again' and 'OK Go: Oh No Special Edition'. Sie has previously done choreography for the 2011 films 'God Bless America' and 'The Future', and she also won a Grammy for her work on 'Here We Go Again'. The film is produced by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot, who have produced all the previous 'Step Up' films.

While they wait for replacement parts, the girls meet up with local rebel Randy (Ed Westwick), crazed preacher John Mellit (Matthew Davis), and equally fanatical parishioner Trudy Potter (Elizabeth Berkley).
