This was worse than I expected, and I did not even expect that much. The quality of this movie might just explain its rather limited cinema release here in the UK. Firstly, the film has minimal relevance to its predecessor. The dance moves and lead character are on a far different tone. How? It appears to have been sexualised, and this has ruined it in my honest opinion. This film had more in common with 'You got served' than Honey 1. At least 'You got served' had brilliant dancing and a climatic showdown at the end (more important for such a movie). We have cheesy acting, cheesy dancing & slutty tones all over. We are supposed to feel sorry for the lead character when she decides to hook up with her ex, after he demonstrated how thuggish he still was at a nightclub by picking a fight with her dance partner. We are supposed to believe that the police are dumb enough not to search the girlfriend of someone who has a history of narcotics possession when he is stopped. I don't know about the U.S, but over here in the U.K they can still hold a juvenile female suspect until a female officer arrives to carry out a body search. Not in this case, they just leave the scene believing all is OK! We are supposed to believe that a dance competition would allow a lead member of a competing dance group to sit on the audition judge panel! To top it all off, our star dance crew blatantly rips off Step up 3 with their kit in the end scene. I had some hopes for this movie, and tried to like it, but there was too much cheese and stupidity thrown in my face. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one to notice.
