"Good Film, Bad Story"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Well, the movie was a great idea inspired by the R&B Styled Marching Bands from Colleges in the USA. The music in the film is breathtaking, the main character is somewhat annoying (his ‘mean street smarts’ are pathetic and laughable, plus he has a large chip on his shoulder which the movie doesn't really explain why) But the movie does earn four stars for the acting abilities of Orlando Jones which as usual are strong throughout the film. Nick Cannon, however, should just stick to making kids shows on Nickelodeon as children obviously cannot see passed his talentless apperances.

The drumlines are also what pushes the film's rating to four stars. It would be amazing to see these kids performing for real.

Description

Charles Stone III's crowd-pleasing drama spotlights the previously unheralded world of university marching bands--more specifically, the cutthroat world that energizes Southern black campuses.

Devon Miles is a Harlem teenager who receives a full scholarship to attend Atlanta A&T University based on his excellent percussion talents. However, making the transition from hip-hop street drumming to the drumline of the school's legendary marching band is more challenging than Miles expected. For one, the band director, Dr. Lee is determined to reclaim the national championship using old-school tactics, even though his traditional beliefs appear to be leaving A&T in the dust. And then there is Sean, the current drum leader, who is threatened by Devon's skills and frustrated by his fierce individuality.

These antagonistic forces, as well as the addition of a cheerleading love interest combine to test Devon's previously unshakeable confidence. As the season builds toward the BET Big Southern Classic and a showdown with rival Morris Brown University, Devon must swallow his pride and learn to be a team player if he wants his band to win the championship.
