Sucks critically, poor acting and script but still bearable to watch.

Always been a sucker for dance films and this didn't fail to impress. It was a breath of fresh air to find a dancing film that had a different sort of dance. I'd never heard of stomping before I watched this film so it really made it different from the other dance films I'd seen. Good film!

It's better than I thought it would be. It's good. You don't have to be a victim of your circumstances, you just have to find your drive and go for it.

I love watching this movie. Super great movie, very awesome dance moves, totally love Meagan Good!!!

After the death of his younger brother, a troubled 19-year-old street dancer from Los Angeles is able to bypass juvenile hall by enrolling in the historically black, Truth University in Atlanta, Georgia. But his efforts to get an education and woo the girl he likes are sidelined when he is courted by the top two campus fraternities, both of which want and need his fierce street-style dance moves to win the highly coveted national step show competition.

As Curtis would say, "I liked this movie better the first time, when it was called Drumline."

A powerful well-made uplifting movie with a competition-forumla plot and some creative stomp-dancing sequences. Entertaining to watch.

Awesome stepping movie since Step Up and Bring It On, but mostly exciting on the street styled and innovative dance moves with the fraternities at the university. African-American actor Columbus Short makes a wonderful dance sequences in the battle and competition. Amazing!

In order for Stomp the Yard to succeed as quality moviemaking, it needed to raise itself up by the bootstraps and give audiences some fresh dance moves. Moviegoers have, after all, seen this sort of story very recently under the titles Stick It, Step Up, and Take the Lead-?inner city youth makes good on the dance floor. Worse yet, this reviewer can honestly say that outside of switching a drum kit for step dancing, Stomp the Yard comes dangerously close to plagiarizing the school drum corps drama Drumline. Not only does Stomp the Yard relish an obvious resemblance to movies of its ilk, it even embraces the shortfalls that dogged them, exuding all of the cocksureness of an MTV video.

In the PG-13-rated Stomp the Yard, an inner city youth (Short) attends Atlanta?s historic Truth University to escape his troubled past, overcoming adversity by implementing street-style dance moves into a fraternity?s step team.

Multiple dance-offs? Check. Romancing the opponent?s girl? Check. Multiple dance-offs? Check. The lead being called a loser who will amount to nothing? Check. Multiple dance-offs? Check. Life-changing street altercation? Check. Did this reviewer mention the dance-offs? Sadly, Stomp the Yard fails to play its one ace card, effectively documenting the unique world of step dancing. Rather than let the action play out in longer takes and allow visage to the choreographed beauty of the animated dance movement, this film utilizes a constant barrage of quick-edits, demonstrating the music video industry?s unfortunate and obvious stranglehold on modern filmmaking.

Bottom line: Drumline without the drum kit.

It's not bad, but it's no big deal.
I liked the story and all but that kind of dancing really doesn't appeal to me.

The first 10 mins contain the best dancing (tip for those that do not want to waste 115 mins). Very predictable story, nothing new to offer.

Dance sequences are impressive, but can barely make up for generic story.

Stomp it into the Abyss and never letting it out. Acting was bad, plot was pointless, there were no real obstacles, not to mention the lack of dramatic tension. The dance was pretty pathetic. The film is like a child putting the puzzles together, and the result is considerably bad.

terrible. A few clever moves, but no quality storyline & only moderately good acting.
