For me, this is not an improvement whatsoever over the first film
6 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like I said when I reviewed the first movie, I love musicals, I love Disney to death and I like high-school movies(ie. Clueless, Mean Girls). However I do not like the High School Musical movies. I'm not bashing anyone who likes them, it's all a matter of taste, but for my taste I find it too predictable and juvenile.

On a plus note, the choreography is spirited and impressive, however the songs are forgettable, the singing is only tolerable, the characters are clichéd and stereotyped, the story is incredibly predictable, the dialogue is terrible and the direction is lacking. In terms of acting, it's nothing special, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are merely okay but I have never liked their characters and the chemistry isn't quite there and the supporting performances are not any better.

Overall, not great and no improvement on the first. 1/10 Bethany Cox
