Streetdance 2 review

Streetdance 2 (PG, 85 mins)
Director: Max & Dania
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

The latest in a long, inexplicably successful line of interchangeable dance movies arrives to haunt us, and in 3D no less. This sequel to the box office smash that was Streetdance follows a dance crew put together from all over Europe with only six weeks until the big competition, which is only arrived at after a full hour of rehearsals and minor dramatic setbacks. Bendy-limbed non-actors throw themselves around with gusto and Tom Conti demeans himself with a vaguely European accent in an entirely plotless, painful excuse for a movie. Be warned: this contains lots and lots and lots of dancing. But because it’s laughable when it’s not concentrating on the dancing and sinfully boring when it is, there’s no place to hide.
