The expression "all the way" means totally or completely. So in the video here, "five stars all the way" expresses that he is definitely or totally going to give them a five-star rating on the app. This expression is very informal and generally just used to emphasize excitement or express that something is the best. Ex: "I like Coca cola." "No, Pepsi all the way!" Ex: I'm from Los Angeles. Lakers all the way!
