Audience Member Similar storyline but by keeping the main character Sara I believe they could've kept some of the old cast. What happened to her old flame that we loved. Also her accent was throwing me off. She was a more believable dancer but the original Sara was insecure and finding herself and the new one had a different demeanor. it would've been better if they gave it a new name and started fresh with new characters. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/30/18 Full Review Audience Member The concept of blending cultures linked this with the original and I liked Miko doing her own dancing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I expected it to be bad but didn't anticipate how awkward the whole thing was. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Set as a continuation from the first film, Sarah (now played by a different actress) has earned her place in a top ballet school and battles her fellow students to be the top prima ballerina. As per the original, her main threat to success comes from her social life whereby her enjoyment of hip hop, drink, and boys means she is not showing the dedication to ballet that her teacher insists upon. It's very much a copycat script from the original and despite suggesting that entrance into this school is everything, she now doubts all that and weighs up whether her real love lies in choreography for urban music. With a combination of fresh dance routines, this movie has its entertaining moments but shows a lack of imagination in producing an almost identical concept to the first. The ending is perhaps the only differing part, but not altogether surprising in the sense that despite her arguments with her bad influence of a boyfriend, she's always going to end up with him. Apparently there was a cameo from Ne-yo in this, although I don't remember it, so fans of his shouldn't get too excited about seeing him very much. It's not really a patch on the original due to its lack of creativity but those who liked that one will undoubtedly warm to this given its successful formula. For me, it only works once and with a cast full of unknowns trying to mirror a previous success, it's always going to fall short. Overall, entertaining in parts but will be a forgotten quantity in a few months, with people always choosing to remember the original 'Save The Last Dance' for its superior quality and credibility. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member this was an awesome movie so if you.think other wise your nuts Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Not as good as the first!!
