Also Opening: Step Up: All In
For fans of the popular Step Up teen dance-romance franchise, the beat goes on. Since 2006, when Channing Tatum starred as the bad kid gone good, getting his break in the Big Number, four installments have burned up the floor. The fifth chapter (the third in 3-D), Step Up: All In has, not Tatum, but Ryan Guzman as Sean, vainly chasing the dream in L.A. while working as a janitor. His discouraged crew has deserted him and pop-locked back to Miami, their Step Up 4 base, but Sean won't drop it. Hearing about a dance competition in Las Vegas, he pulls together some oldtimers, some newcomers and . . . hey, gang, let's put on a show!
