    Some songs are not as great as others but the acting is amazing, as are most parts of the storyline.

    People will look back at this trilogy with or without nostalgia goggles and still call it a masterpiece.

    It's the 3rd and final installment of the pop culture phenomenon that brought musicals back to the forefront while also selling tons of merchandise, soundtracks, inspiring world tours, YouTube cover songs, and solidifying these actors' careers Director Kenny Ortega finishes the trilogy with more songs and dance numbers 15 years later and it's still the best one of the three All the cast members from last time are back from Zac Efron to Vanessa Hudgens to Ashley Tisdale to Monique Coleman to Lucas Grabeel to Corbin Bleu to Oleysa Rulin but also new players to carry on the legacy It's senior year for the Wildcats; Troy is unsure where to go for college even though there's an application for Juilliard, Gabriella has to choose between going millions of miles away or stay local, Kelsi is hoping to put together one last musical with everyone's busy schedules, and Sharpay wants her fame and fortune after graduation even if it means stealing the spotlight from Troy and Gabriella Everyone's facing the pressure and reality of graduating and found to prom and the film doesn't shy away from relatable dilemmas kids face whether it's deciding which college to go to, saying goodbye, or worrying if they'll still stay in touch afterwards Maybe our hearts doesn't know what's in high school, we all wish it would all slow down, there will always be an emphasis on collective action and importance of group effort over individualism The songs are way more catchy, more toe tapping, the sets are sparkling with rich detail and colors, the actors are still so charismatic (they're not bad actors even if they're playing one-dimensional characters), and this certainly feels like a closing chapter of a phenomenon It is after all a thank you note to the fans I suppose on another level that the movie is overwhelmed by so many subplots it's hard to tackle them all, then again the fans want to soak up every minute before it ends And I won't lie I was in tears at several points even the ending which is hard to believe it's all over Again it's an over exaggerated version of high school and cheesy but entertains still with its musical energy It's a series that celebrates talent, enthusiasm, loyalty, and love not just for tween audiences Plus it acts as a nice time capsule with a big budget My second best movie of 2008!

    Since the story wrote itself, it would have been much harder with other films to add a lot of seasoning to the story. However, there was only so much. The plot other had a couple of too-quick turnabouts.

    It was the WORST movie I've EVER watched. They ALWAYS break out into song. They have mental issues and are delusional. Don't even get me started on Troy Bilten or whatever his name is. He's a narcissist jerk who's manipulative and is schizophrenic. Who sings during a BASKETBALL GAME. I'm tired of producers getting tricked and lied to thinking this is okay to produce. I hope whoever made this is VERY unhappy. I'm coming for you. 😬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

    I saw like 20 minutes of this movie once like 6 years ago cause one of our teachers decided to turn it on. It was literally the cringiest 20 minutes of my life. 20 minutes of pure misery. Who really thought these movies were a good idea? The only people I can even fathom liking this are children under 9 years of age, and that's mostly because most of them don't care what it is as long as it's something to keep them occupied.

    While boasting the most impressive production values but the weakest story, this film serves as a more than satisfactory conclusion to the High School Musical film trilogy.

    If you took the first two High School Musical films and gave them performance enhancing drugs, that would be this climactic final entrance in the franchise. From the first moment with Troy Bolton's high definition sweat, it was evident that Disney was playing with house money. The production value was through the roof, the set pieces were fantastic and there was an incredible attention to detail. The big moments of the film were just as dramatic as the first two and the corniness and silliness were just as ridiculous, but that is part of the appeal of the franchise. The two-hour runtime was a tad long, the new cast members were bland and some of the existing cast members lacked closure (Taylor and Chad), however, for the most part it was an entertaining film. Though formulaic and predictable, this film proved to be just as large everyone expected. It might not be the best story, but the filmmakers sure know how to hit the nostalgia button. With some of the best songs of the franchise and a finale to leave fans covered in chills, High School Musical 3 is a great conclusion to the musical trilogy.
