StreetDance 2 received its first review on 10 February 2012 with Screen International chief film critic, Mark Adams, describing the dancing as "toe-tappingly cool" and stating that lead actress Sofia Boutella is "destined to be a big star" Box office results for the opening weekend (from Friday March 30, 2012) for Street Dance 2 showed the movie grossed £608,024 and placed fifth in the UK movie box office charts, a result that only managed a quarter of the success Streetdance 3D did, placing it behind The Hunger Games which remained the top grossing movie for two weeks. The film caused significant outrage among Algerians living in both France and Algeria due to their compatriot Sofia Boutella's appearance in scenes that are excessively risqué by Algerian standards. Viewing the film as an "insult to Algerian traditions and ethics," some Algerian immigrants in France boycotted the film and a campaign was launched through social networking sites Twitter and Facebook to prevent the showing of the film in Algeria. This film received generally mixed reviews. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 46% (Rotten) of critics gave this film positive reviews.
