Great Acting
28 January 2007 | by gm-dakatSee all my reviews

Reguardless of the other votes and forums I've read about this flick.. Firstly I don't think its racist why its gotten bad ratings... and heres why... Firstly I am white, not that it should matter.. Movie idea was unoriginal.. and in my opinion that effected ppls ratings on this movie.. They couldn't see past the idea that it was not a NEW IDEA.... blah blah blah. People are just watching the movies to be entertained and if they've seen something similar there not entertained where as there's the few of us out there that can appreciate great acting and with this movie its exactly that.. I really enjoyed drumline.. Possibly because I was a drummer in school but I've also enjoyed quite a few of "dance movies" even enjoyed them enough to buy on DVD.. This movie Stomp The Yard.. I DO intend to buy on DVD as soon as its available.. I do recommend seeing this movie regardless of what the few other ppl have rated this movie on.. I feel it unfairly got a bad IMDb rating because it was not original.. Hope this helps
