High School Musical 3
After the successful first 2 movies which is shown free in Disney Channel, this installment is actually filmed and shown in the cinemas instead. I am a fan of the first 2 movies and I can't wait to see the 3rd show, especially I have seen some of the new videos for the new songs in Disney Channel.
"Disney’s “High School Musical” phenomenon leaps onto the big screen in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR, which finds high school seniors Troy (ZAC EFRON) and Gabriella (VANESSA HUDGINS) facing the prospect of being separated from one another as they head off in different directions to college. Joined by the rest of the Wildcats, they stage an elaborate spring musical reflecting their experiences, hopes and fears about their future. With incredible new music and exciting dance numbers designed to take maximum advantage of the big screen, this motion picture extravaganza delivers plenty of high-energy entertainment from East High’s talented ensemble."
I think I got high expectation from this movie especially when I loved the first 2 movies and the songs as mentioned before. From a movie prospective, the movie had a bigger budget, a bigger scenes and a bigger cast group as well. However to me this might not be something good. Hmm... The feel of this movie is quite different from the first two, this is more dramatise for the cinema feel, I think.
The scenes are definitely might more bigger and with more budget! I loved the elaborate scenes which is a must for musicals. The cast are pretty must bigger as well mainly on the backup dancers but the main focus is still on the few leads, especially Troy and Gabriella. There is also an intro of a few upcoming leads. This must be leading to HSM 4 then. Hee... The dance for most of the songs are still great as usual.
The songs are not that strong as compared to the first 2 as well. The first 2 movies songs are easy to ears and easy to sing along as well. The latest one are more musical type and less catchy as well. The acting is still average for most of them less Sharpay who was really good as the "evil" one. Haha. The plot is simple to follow as all Disney movies are.
Overall, I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5. This is a must see for all HSC fans!
