When top street dancer Ash (Falk Hentschel) is humiliated and laughed off stage by American crew Invincible, he sets off to gather the best dancers from around the world to take them on - with a dance style they weren't expecting. With landmark locations, a spectacular fusion of dance styles and an unparalleled vibrancy, the sequel to StreetDance sees our hero fall in love with a beautiful salsa dancer as he discovers the magic, power and passion of dancing for the ultimate global dance off.

So slapped together it feels less like a movie than an extended montage...
If you're hoping for intricate plotting, suspense or even nominal character development, StreetDance 2 is unlikely to waltz away with your heart.
Boutella shows promise beyond her day job as one of Madonna's dancers but otherwise speaking parts are sensibly limited to those who can act.
When the provocative rhythms of Latin fuse with funky street-dancing, the result is sexy, visceral and exciting. Sofia Boutella is a sensation; watching her dance is sure to drive young men to distraction.
Energetic dance routines interrupted now and then by unlikely dialogue and wooden acting: Welcome to StreetDance 2.
Like almost all dance films, Streetdance 2 has failed to find extremely talented dancers who are also even remotely credible actors.
All the sentiments about 'being all you can be' fall somewhat flat against the cynically commercial feel of StreetDance 2's enterprise, which credits the audience with one brain-cell each.
It's cornier than a field full of maize, of course, but its lack of scrappy charm renders it so tedious...
As a piece of catchy pop culture, the StreetDance franchise has a natural buzz - just don't expect much more than awesome moves for your money.
The story is even flimsier than before, but the dancing is even more electrifying... The vibrant choreography fuses hip-hop hustle and Latin sensuality and the climactic dance number is so cool it raises goosebumps.
An eye-popping and vibrant coming together of super-sexy salsa and spectacular, stylish street dance makes for a fun and entertaining bit of 3D cinema.
In this worthy successor, it's once again the dancing that counts, and this sure-fire crowd-pleaser delivers sensational high-energy routines to some great pop hits.
Streetdance 2 has brash energy; it does not neglect to do what it says on the tin and the lack of realism is no problem.
A new emphasis on Latin dance means the choreography is often stomach-flutteringly seductive, but it's hard not to regret the loss of the first film's uniquely British flavour.
Tom Conti is good value as a fleet-footed bar owner and the dance sequences are vigorously staged but the story is plodding and perfunctory and has no connection with the earlier film...
