Get ready to ROCK with the biggest musical event of the year - now in an Extended Edition with never-before-seen scenes & songs! Join Mitchie (Demi Lovato), Shane, Nate and Jason (Jonas Brothers), and some brand-new campers across the lake for 2 times the music, 2 times the dance moves and 2 times the fun in Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam! Mitchie can't wait to go back to Camp Rock and spend the summer making new music with her friends and superstar Shane Gray. But the slick new camp across the lake, Camp Star, has drummed up some serious competition - featuring newcomers Luke (Matthew "Mdot" Finley) and Dana (Chloe Bridges). In a sensational battle of the bands, with Camp Rock's future at stake, will Camp Star's flashy production and over-the-top antics win out, or will Camp Rockers prove that music, teamwork, and spirit are what truly matter?


Why is there a need to produce a sequel to the 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock? Because the musical TV movie was successful, that’s why. And while stars Demi Lovato (she has released two albums since) and the Jonas Brothers (if you are a young girl below 20 who loves teenage pop music, you should be familiar with their discography) are still in the fame game, why not? Look where High School Musical brought Zac Efron.

So here we have the main story of Camp Rock 2, where Mitchie Torres (Lovato) returns to Camp rock to be reunited with her friends during the summer holiday. That’s about it for the plot, really. Oh, there is also a rival camp who challenged the good guys to a show down of rock and roll, in a reality TV style where the winning camp is decided by popularity votes. Yes, that’s really about it for the plot.

We have to admit, there is nothing to shout about for this Disney Channel production – and why should there be? The kids (and quite a number of teenagers too) are watching this for the music, and its good looking stars, of course. And that is precisely why director Paul Hoen and his team of filmmakers have decided to focus on the music and the good looking stars. The humour and jokes are decent, and the there is nothing to stop viewers from laying back on a weekend to enjoy something this frills free. You’d chuckle as the Jonas Brothers’ tour van tumble into the lake, you’d bop along as the camp residents sing and dance to lively music, and you’d laugh as the junior rockers make a fool out of their adult counterpart.

After listening to the countless number of songs, viewers would be tempted to get a copy of the soundtrack to sing along. Songs like “Brand New Day”, “It’s On” and “This Is Our Song” are what define wholesome goodness in the popular music scene. Besides, Lovato and Jonas Brothers Joe, Kevin and Nick aren’t too bad at singing too. It certainly helps that they project a wholesome and clean image so parents can leave their kids to watch this while they try to finish their infinite list of household chores.

After establishing the fact that the story is formulaic and predictable, we must also give credit to the folks at Disney for coming up with this formula. It has the power to keep viewers’ eyes glued to the screen. Maybe it’s the more impressive sets (the success of the first movie must have brought about a bigger budget for its sequel), maybe it’s the catchy music and the fun choreography, or maybe it’s just the kid in all of us wanting to spend summer with our friends.


This Code 3 DVD comes with a Rock-Along version which allows you to sing along to the songs during the movie. Previews of Disney movies like Tangled and the Platinum edition of the classic Beauty and the Beast are also included.


The movie's visual transfer is fine. You can choose to watch it in either English or Portuguese 5.1 Dolby Digital audio tracks.
