In this sequel to Saturday Night Fever, former disco king Tony Manero has left Brooklyn and lives in Manhattan. He stays in a cheap hotel and works as a dance instructor and as a waiter at a dance club, trying to succeed as a professional dancer on Broadway. The breakaway from his Brooklyn life, family and friends seems to have matured Tony and refined his personality, represented by his diminished accent and his avoidance of alcohol and profanity. However, certain attitudes have not changed, as with his most recent girlfriend, who's also the singer of a local rock band. Written by

This movie means to represent the fight between love and passion, and it makes that by the love story between Tony and Jackie and his involving with Laura. At the end the chief character will make a not simple choice giving importance to the person who really loves him understanding he loves too. The dance show is a beauty synthesis of this conflict, as well as the musics which are amazing, above all, in my opinion, that one in whom there are much light effects during the "journey through the hell" scene: it is astonishing (Vince Dicola and Stallone composers)! The title is: Royale theater show (finally I knew after many years).
Good interpretation of the actors, although perhaps the movie is too short than it should be, to analyze better the individual characters. Cynthia Rhodes is an excellent interpreter of her role, like also Finola Hughes able to playing an intriguing charming woman.
Behind the Hell there is the Light and so the movie ends.
