Worst, but not the best. Expecting much better!, 28 April 2015
Author: joshuadrake-39480 from Springfield, TN

MUSICAL, Kenny Ortega, the director of the trilogy, and the cast of the first film signed on to do two films, in which what was created a trilogy.

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 takes place during summer break as our Wildcats are being forced to work for Sharpay Evans all summer at the Country Club.

But things does not go as planned as Sharpay tries to make Troy break up with Gabriella and but then, and then this would lead a very intense and dramatic climax in this film, but Gabriella and Troy breaks up, but eventually gets back together in the end and wins a talent show.

This movie just DRIVES ME INSANE! I don't mind a sequel to a Disney Channel movie once in a while, as long as a Disney or a Disney Channel movie stays true to it's source material, but for some reasons, some movie sequels, remakes, re-imaginings, reboots or Disney Channel movie can never seem to do that.

Yes, the plot is okay, but it seems that every writer who writes a movie for Disney Channel or a Disney film actually thinks it is important to talk more about certain elements in the film. No, certain elements doesn't need a lot of detail, but they get a lot of detail anyway.

The certain elements of a movie is okay, when we know less about some of them and in films like HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, "less is more" and none of today's Disney Channel movie or television series writers who writes movies or TV shows for Disney Channel can ever see that! They also do this to make people for sorry for the Sharpay Evans character in the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL trio of films. Why? I don't want to feel sorry for Sharpay Evans, I want to feel sorry for both Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez in the situations that they are put in. That's how the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL movies are supposed to work! Also, there are way too many songs in the film. Really, the songs seems to outweigh how much people can get into the story. The first film and the third film only had a few songs inserted into them and they also don't kill how much you can get into the plot of the film, but the one thing that really killed my vibe is one certain thing and that is Sharpay Evans.

From an acting standpoint, this movie falls flat in some areas, but it really doesn't with some of the comedy and dramatic sequences in this film.

Ashley Tisdale really got on my nerves as Sharpay Evans and sometimes made me wish I could skip a certain part with her, but her singing is really good and incredible that I can't skip any scene with her because she is in the whole darn movie.

Lucas Grabeel, Olesya Rulin, Kaycee Stroth, Monique Coleman and Corbin Bleu does a very good job in this film, but they just don't deliver when they really need to in some areas of the film.

The only two in the film that really tries is Zac Elfron as Troy and Vanessa Anne Hudgens as Gabriella, they really had great chemistry once again in this film and they give one heck of a performance together and separate in their scenes.

The direction and dance choreography is amazing and spectacular, but also very fantastic. Kenny Ortega, you did a great and amazing job.

Despite my feeling about having way too much singing in this film, I love "Fabolous", "Work This Out", "You Are The Music in Me (Troy and Gabriella version), "Bet On It", "Gotta Go My Own Way", "Everyday" and "All For One". Those songs were good to hear, the only song I am not a big huge fan of is the Sharpay version of "You Are The Music in Me". I also like the first song that opens the film, "What Time Is It?". That had real great and cool choreography and really great heart and work put into it.

Overall, I kind of hate HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, but I also like it and while I think that it is not the best in the trilogy, I was definitely expecting much better than this. The film would have been better if they just took the words: High School Musical out of the title and just called it HSM 2: Summer Break.

I give it a 3.5 out of 10.
