My Review

Source Material:
Original Story, continuation of other High School Musical films.

Defective: Lame, that all I am going to say, LAME.

Acting and Dialogue:
Common: Zac Eron is the only decent actor from the whole HSM cast, second place would go to Vanessa Hudgens. all the other are just Disney "cookies-cutter-marketable-teens."

Common: Besides the Disney "shininess" nothing

Common: A theater director/ choreography turn filmmaker not the best idea, just didn't work out this time.

Common: The first film had the best soundtrack from there it has gone down hill.

Special and Visual FX:
Common: None, most lighting and stage work hint the title of the film.

A strong C, I only recommend this film to families and preteens who like HSM. I am a fan of the theater arts and musical movies but this movie did nothing for me...first one was the best (as a TV movie).
