Movie Info

The legacy of legendary dancer and choreographer Honey Daniels lives on in spirited 17-year-old Maria Bennett. After a brush with the law, Maria has returned to her gritty Bronx roots to rebuild her life with nothing but a talent for street dance and a burning ambition to prove herself. She finds refuge in the place that made her feel most alive as kid-the rec center where Honey's exuberant classes first ignited her passion for dance. Keeping on the straight and narrow means living with Honey's mom Connie and holding down a job just to make ends meet. But a rare night out at a local dance club gives her an opportunity to let loose with a joy and energy she had almost forgotten. Maria's killer moves catch the eye of Brandon, a Rec Center volunteer, who invites her to help him transform a group of gifted but undisciplined dancers called the HD's. Maria's skills also attract the attention of her old boyfriend Luis, the charismatic leader of the award-winning 718 dance crew, who hopes to lure her back into the street world she is trying to escape. Seeing a chance at creating a new and meaningful life, Maria pours her heart and soul into dance and begins training the HDs to compete on the television dance competition "Dance or Die"-which means going up against the 718 and Luis. Like Honey before her, Maria rediscovers the thrill of dancing as she finds out who she truly is and where she belongs.

It's fine for the genre, but one day it'd be great to see an urban dance flick with more ambition.

For dance fans, it'll work. But for anyone else watching the movie, there are better films out there, and who's going to watch this if they're not a dance fan?

Pointless sequel is a waste of time, too mature for tweens.

Common Sense Media

It's a sequel nobody asked for, and unsurprisingly, it sucks.

About as emotionally profound as a tampon advert, and probably less suspenseful...

This genre is now as conventionalised as kabuki and noh theatres in its acrobatic choreography and dramatic cliches.

Audience Reviews for Honey 2

This is another in the long line of movies about dance crews and their flashy dance moves. The tie between this sequel and the original is rather thin, but it is a good movie all the same.
