It's a little bit of a musical, a little bit of a sports film, a little bit coming-of-age story. And none of it, beyond the dancing, any good.

... the film as a whole lacks the energy of its dance numbers.

At a time of year when theaters are filled with flashy, fun, but empty offerings, Stomp The Yard is a surprisingly satisfying alternative.

It's not a great movie, no, and maybe not even a particularly good one. But it's likable and unassuming, and the dancing is off the hook, or whatever the kids are saying these days.

There is so much yet so little on the screen: so much movement and action, but so little to cling on to. So much angst, so little context.

An inspirational dance movie, which, like an inspirational sports movie, runs on predictable rails.

The dynamic dance sequences have all the right moves, but there's precious little to hold the attention once the music stops.

Driven along by a decent cast who really turn it on during the musical moments, letting their steps tell the story.

The performances are good but the heavily cliched script ensures that there's very little of interest here, unless you're a massive stepping fan.

There's little here for British eyes.

The Yard is a minefield of clichés - step at your peril.

Decidely average teen drama but with a few decent dance numbers.

Sylvain White should be chained to a chair...for the migraine-inducing crimes he commits, which rob the numbers of any joy or human flavor they might have possessed.

If there is any sort of cultural relevance to be found in a movie like Stomp the Yard, it's that spectacles don't even matter anymore: We just need the possibility of a spectacle.

The plot was stomped on a bit, but it is watchable.

You will never see stomping like this as I'm sure it took months of training to pull off all these incredible dance scenes.

Stomp the Yard is a much better movie than its trailers would indicate, and better than many of its predecessors in the teen-dance genre.

Clearly, someone is getting served here but it certainly isn't the audience.

Director Sylvain White, whose last film was the equally unnecessary I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, manages to take the joy out of a dance movie by jerking the camera around and speeding up the dance moves so much.
