Street Dance 2 (2012)

It was the special screening of the movie Street Dance 2 over at E-Curve which I had the opportunity to watch thanks to Churp Churp. I've always been a fan of dance movies as I felt the actors and actress inside had to be really skillful to pull of those super tough dance moves. The same cannot be said with the plots and storyline of movies of this genre, which proves true for Street Dance 2.

Reaching the cinema just in time to catch the movie Street Dance 2 at 9.30pm, I was rather glad to catch up with a few familiar faces before entering the cinema hall. Due being late in collecting my tickets that night, my seat was 4 rows from the front, not that I'm complaining or anything because I felt the cinema itself was rather comfortable with ample space for the legs.

The movie itself was a sequel to the first Street Dance movie back in 2010. Street Dance 2 starts off with the main actor and dancer Ash (Falk Hentschel) assembling a team of really talented dancers from all over Europe with his new friend, Eddie (George Sampson) to beat the world's best dance crew, The Invincibles. Gathering all the streetdancers is one thing, but to come up with a really unique dance moves to beat the champions is another feat altogether. That is if Ash could get each individual street dancer to work as a team.

While gathering the world's best street dancers, Ash chances on a club with Latin dancers performing some really cool B-Boy themed dance infused with sexy Latin moves. That's when he meets up with the beautiful and hot salsa dancer Eva (Sofia Boutella) who teaches him the ropes of the Salsa dance.

The plot is really very predictable down to the ending, which could actually be summarized up in a few short sentence. I'm in awe of the dance moves in the movie though, as the team really brought it up a notch to beat The Invincibles. With some good bass thumping music, hip-hop, b-boy street dance merges with Latin Salsa to create a beautiful finale dance.

What can I say, I love the dance moves, pretty much yawned though some of the slow moving cliche of a plot, and felt good in the end because everybody leaves home happy. It played like a Disney feel good movie with a really simple storyline. Watch it for the dance moves, turn away at the rather insignificant scenes which I felt were put in just for the sake of having a story. Personally I'll rate Street Dance 2 a 5/10, mainly because I love how the dance moves were performed to the nice music.
