For those of you who think this movie is a let down, then I am afraid you are let down.
This 80's classic has more fever in its final scene than the whole of the first movie put together.
Okay the first one rocked, get over it, its a story about life and having the confidence to go for it. There is not a part in this movie that is I personally don't like, in fact I could probably read the script start to finish. I ain't no freak but this movie is quite simply a master piece, It is the Rocky IV of dance movies and twice the film at that. Its a progression of his life, the disco days are gone and he needs to get something going to quench his thirst for life. It if anything teaches you to reach for the the unattainable, the only barriers in life are the ones we put up our selves, Manero teaches us we can go all the way and not sell ourselves short. Read between the lines 80's Edam and I love it!
