After being beaten by his rival hip hop dance crew, the "Invincibles", Ash seeks revenge at the annual international street dance championship.

This is a great dance film! It definitely feels like an homage to the 2004 American film "You Got Served" which happens to be my favorite dance movie of all time. Many of the scenes have a similar feel and the imagery like the dance battles happening in the boxing ring are similar. I loved the dancing, especially the Latin dance element of this film. The story line plays out the same as all dance movies so watching it for some extravagant plot would be missing the point. I find it cool that other countries are making similar dance films and that dance culture has proved to be present worldwide. The skill of dancing in this movie from all the dancers but especially from the Latin dancers is Outstanding. If you are a fan of "You Got Served" and like watching movies about different cultures and art forms than this movie is for you. It is very entertaining and I recommend to everyone not just people who love dance!

The new oxford dictionary will feature StreetDance 2 as the synonym of Awful.

First thing : i do not know how to write a review but what i'm writing is absolutely accurate and correct.

Secondly : if u haven't watched this movie yet there is absolutely no reason to do so, if you have wasted your TIME and money than you have my sympathies.

This movie starts and ends with worst acting performances, it makes The Twilight actors look like Oscar/Academy award winners, it could have been forgiven if they had much better dance to back it up but unfortunately Bristol Palin(daughter of Sarah Palin) dances much better than anybody in this whole movie. I used to hate step up series for having pathetic actors but they always had much much better dance which kept me glued to the screen. This movie has nothing i had to keep forwarding throughout the movie to find something interesting but there is nothing amusing about this movie i thought the last dance battle would be awesome but that was 89th time i was disappointed during this movie.

If you wanna commit suicide or you want to do serious damage to your brain i would recommend this movie.

Excellent display of a fusion of dances, with a highly contagious feel-good atmosphere

For people who did not manage to catch Street Dance 3D (2010), it should come as good news that this sequel has no relation with its predecessor- other than two returning acts, Flawless and George Sampson. Street Dance 2 uses the dance scene in Europe as its backdrop, introducing a number of dances and adopting pretty much the same pattern as Street Dance 3D. However, compared to the original, this movie has a greater focus, which is to showcase the fusion of street dance with a popular Latin dance form, salsa.

The storyline, albeit cheesy, has a lot more punch and is more focused, centred as it is around a distraught Ash (Falk Hentshel) who after failing terribly at a dance battle is scouted by Eddie (George Sampson). The duo subsequently comb all over Europe for the best dancers to form their dance crew, with the aim of beating the 'Invincibles'. They chanced upon a salsa dancer Eva (Sofia Boutella), who eventually became crucial to their success. In between, there is some drama here and there, including the obligatory love story. However, those looking for some sparks will likely be disappointed, as the romance is as clichéd as it gets.

Nonetheless, as mentioned earlier, the movie does have the charms a dance movie ought to have, which are essentially supported by the dance sequences and the music. For instance, the difficulty of combining salsa and street dance was brought out through how Ash acquired the steps by taking lessons from Eva. A street dancer, who is trained to express himself as freely as he could, now needs to be disciplined and take into consideration of a partner to display elegance and passion. All these are complimented with a good mix of contemporary groovy dance mixes that engages the audience into the performance.

Also, to-watch-out-for is Sofia Boutella, who makes her feature film debut here. The French hip-hop dancer takes on a whole new different dance form yet shows no sign of being an amateur and comes off as a complete natural- certainly one of the highlights of the film.

As you would probably expect, Ash will end up being the hero who overcomes and emerges from his past failure to prove his worth. The grand finale is undoubtedly the climax of the whole visual experience. The dance routines were electrifying, a definite treat for all. The joy from the triumph was also very genuine and contagious.

Still, what remains as a really shortcoming for dance movies is its limited appeal for the uninitiated- perhaps a more solid-packed storyline and drama would enable it to broaden its appeal.
