Staying Alive Reviews

Film4

Tracking Travolta's adventures as he gets to perform on Broadway and falls in and out of love, director Stallone is in his mindless mode when it comes to characterization.

It all amounts to an embarrassing show of unrestrained, Hollywood-style egomania.

The bottom line is that Staying Alive is nowhere as good as its 1977 predecessor, Saturday Night Fever.

If not quite one of the worst sequels ever made, it's near the top of the list of all-time most disappointing sequels. Writer-director Stallone stupidly attempts to turn Tony Manero into a dancing Rocky.

All could be forgiven if it weren't for the soulless overall slickness.

A slick, commercial cinematic jukebox, a series of self-contained song-and-dance sequences that could be cut apart and played forever on MTV -- which is probably what will happen.

A sequel with no understanding of what made its predecessor work.

So horrific are the musical sequences in this movie that you'll swear you were having nightmares directed by Satan himself.

More like staying dead...a monotonous and unnecessary sequel that has all the grace and flow of a greased hog on rollerskates
