    Given its predictable story, the only reason to see Stomp is for the rhythmic step dancing.

    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.

    Yes, stepping is an age-old tradition at historically African American schools, but this smells of desperation; one more misstep for a film with two left feet.
  4. Stepping is everything in Stomp the Yard, and, dare I say it, a stepping stone to DJ's redemption. The movie itself is redeemed -- slightly -- by its almost touching devotion to the hoary Hollywood traditions of college movies with battling frats, as well as its earnest endorsement of education.

Nothing new, just like your normal dance movie. IE) you got served. It had some nice moves, and so on, but the rest of the movie dragged. Watch it when it's on TV, it's nothing to write home about. I'd say the highlight in the movie was April, she looked great. Other than that, very average movie. Full Review »

    This is a rewrite of Teen Wolf. It is the same exact story just it doesn't take place in highschool. I have seen this movie so many This is a rewrite of Teen Wolf. It is the same exact story just it doesn't take place in highschool. I have seen this movie so many times in a hundred different guises and this is beyond childish. It offers nothing culturally of importance though it portends importance. Do not waste your time this movie has nothing to offer but the many jokes you can make about it. Full Review »
