Look! All the dancers from the first Step Up movie are back on the big screen getting their groove on again. Now the Step Up crew is in Vegas in another dance battle that could make or break their careers. Step Up All In is one for all and all for one, but is it a good movie for kids. This parental guide to the movies has the scoop.
Sean is a down and out dancer who brings his crew, known as The Mob, to Los Angeles. Los Angeles turns out to be a bust. The crew considers going back to Miami, but Sean decides to stay in LA. While hanging out in LA, Sean leans of a dance competition in Las Vegas where the winner will receive a three year contract. Sean decides to put together a new crew and head to Las Vegas. When they arrive, he finds that his old crew is there and loyalties clash.
This movie has lots of fancy dance moves. The women are not exactly dressed modestly. The dancing is spectacular, Las Vegas style. Everything is just bigger in Vegas applies here. There are a few instances of language that may be offensive. The biggest element in the movie in terms of whether it is a family friendly movie is that the suggestive dance moves. It is in line with the content of the first Step Up movie. There is not actual sexual content. The focus of the movie is on the dance competition.
This move is geared towards pre-teens and above. It may not be appropriate for younger audiences due to the suggestive dance content. The dance moves in the m movie are professional and take many years of training to master. There is the potential that younger children may hurt themselves if they try to imitate the moves without proper training. This movie is suggested for children 12 and up, taking into consideration the content advisories previously mentioned. Those who enjoy modern dance are in for a treat. It is rap and hip hop culture with a focus on self-expression. This might not be a good movie for all members of the family, but it will be a hit with dance fans.
