Caught Me By Surprise!!
28 October 2014 | by (South Carolina, US) – See all my reviews

When I first heard VH1 was making original movie sequel to Drumline, the first thought through my head was ' Oh god, not another Stomp the Yard: Homecoming'. But as I sat down in my bed to watch the premiere, it did have it's corny moments, but as the plot thicken I found myself watching through the commercials. I have to say VH1 is very well known for their amazing shows like Single Ladies & Hit the Floor. I would definitely love to see them work with more movie like this even though it did have it's moment. My favorite parts would have to be the battle specifically the final battle. The acting department was also favorable with Nick Cannon returning with amazing acting in the speech scene <*MUST WATCH*. Plus the return of my childhood crush, Jordan Calloway. Just being surprised how he has grown since Unfabolous <3. In all words, Drumline: A New Beat scores a nine out of ten from me. :)
