Movie connection really - can't get there on the site - In a rehearsal sequence, a banner for Morris Brown College is seen. Morris Brown is one of the colleges featured in Drumline, which follows the same storyline of rival sides, one the historic winner, the other with a more disciplined group but the usual loser. The two sides square off in an official competition, a tie is declared and they face off. See more »

No Masterpiece but entertaining!
29 May 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I know. The idea is not really original, but yet i have to admit the characters and the acting is not bad. The moves are pretty good, too. What i really did not like was the plot points. Everything was so obvious. Especially in the end. I knew exactly what was going to happen. Yet a gread show

I actually enjoyed the leading actor very much.

I've seen Street Style and Step up. Whereby i think Stomp the Yard cannot keep up with Step up, it is definitely betther than Street Style.

  • 2 stars because it is not a genuine idea - 1 star because the plot
points a very easy to foresee - 1 Star for bad dialogue sometimes

... which leaves 6 out of 10 for an enjoyable movie. If you like the genre, go see it.
