Storyline

The story follows Danielle (Dani) Bolton, an upper class Brooklyn girl who defies her parents in order to attend a college in Atlanta so she can join - and revitalize - their once-prominent drum line. Dani's quest to become the first female section leader of the drum line in the school's history will be hampered by upperclassmen (including her cousin, Tyree), her feelings for fellow band mate and rival, Jayven, and the school's crosstown rivals.

Goofs

In the marching scenes, the way the video lines up, the band is sometimes marching on the left foot and sometimes with the right. Given that the music they were playing at the time was in a 4/4 meter, they would not have been switching which foot leads from measure to measure as one would when playing mixed meters, so this is clearly a syncing issue.

Not bad, but not good either
29 October 2014 | by the_remixer08See all my reviews

I never go into movies with high expectations, especially for television. I just always look at them for entertainment. As for this movie, I knew it wasn't going to compare to the original, but I just didn't particularly care for the writing for this film. Everything seemed sort of rushed by them trying to talk about what happened to past/original characters, and a lot of lines were a bit corny. It just didn't seem "real" you know? However, I did enjoy the band scenes. I was also a little disappointed in how they even wrote in the lead character.They made it seem like she was a female Myles, when I just wish her situation could have been different and maybe she was just having a hard time simply because she was just a female on the line. Why give us a part two when we are looking at a person with the exact same issues? And if she was a bit like Myles, they could have had Myles talk to her about his past experiences. It just seemed kind of rushed to me. It had the potential to be way better than what it was.
