Okay, wiki and imdb both say the character's name is 'Maria Ramirez' but I don't believe that is her name, I mean, the prison warden/guard called her Bennett, and my friend Jess confirmed I wasn't mishearing so-...anyway, it's my headcanon that Maria is Bonnie Bennett's BAMF dancer twin in NY. And Luis said 'I don't trust you, witch' so it all fits in nicely. It's my video, so I'll call her Bennett if I want to.

Anyway, just a quick (made this in four hours) video to show my appreciation for this character, Maria. I just saw Kat Graham's movie 'Honey 2 today AT LAST and-...well, it was better than I expected. Honestly, Maria was an amazing character, she felt so real and sassy to me. I'm biased because I have an obsession with Kat and Bonnie, but honestly, she was the only good thing about this movie. It's pretty poor with it's stereotypes and formulaic plots and I hate dance movies for these reasons. I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone unless you were a Kat fan or really bored.

Also sick of the rich white boy saving the POC female character in these films.

' The legacy of legendary dancer and choreographer Honey Daniels lives on in spirited 17-year-old Maria Ramirez (Katerina Graham). After a brush with the law, Maria has returned to her gritty Bronx roots to rebuild her life with nothing but a talent for street dance and a burning ambition to prove herself. She finds refuge in the place that made her feel most alive as a kid at the rec center where Honey's exuberant classes first ignited her passion for dance.

Keeping on a straight and narrow means living with Honey's mom Connie (Lonette McKee) and holding down a job just to make ends meet. But a rare night out at a local dance club gives her an opportunity to let loose with a joy and energy she had almost forgotten. Maria's killer moves catch the eye of Brandon (Randy Wayne), a rec center volunteer, who invites her to help him transform a group of gifted but indisciplined dancers called the HD's.

Maria's skills also attract the attention of her old boyfriend Luis (Christopher 'War' Martinez), the charismatic leader of the award winning 718 dance crew, who hopes to lure her back into the street world she is trying to escape. Seeing a chance at creating a new and meaningful life, Maria pours her heart and soul into dance and begins training the HDs to compete on the television dance competition "Dance or Die" which means going up against the 718 and Luis. Like Honey before her, Maria rediscovers the thrill of dancing as she finds out who she truly is and where she belongs.
