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 a 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.

Critic Reviews for Honey 2

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

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

Nearly every dance film cliché is done to death here, but at least the hip-hoppery is spectacular, played out before a panel of judges who make Cheryl Cole look like a genius.

If only it was a sequel to Bee Movie.

June 9, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Compared with the redemptive pizzazz of something like Streetdance 3D, there's a soul-crushing, lockstep quality to the lighting, the editing, and the soundtrack.

June 9, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

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

The soundtrack's ace, the dance routines are great, and the eye candy's Wonka-standard.
