Good dancing doesn't make this pile a good movie.

It's just another dance movie, nothing special about it and nothing original about it either! This goes to prove that originality is dead!

DJ(Columbus Short) is, by all appearances, not a product of his environment; he's smart enough to attend Truth University on a scholarship; he's more like Tre than Doughboy. We assume. "Stomp the Yard" flees John Singleton's DJ(Columbus Short) is, by all appearances, not a product of his environment; he's smart enough to attend Truth University on a scholarship; he's more like Tre than Doughboy. We assume. "Stomp the Yard" flees John Singleton's hood before we know who DJ is: good kid or thug? Stay awhile, after all, "Stomp the Yard" has a running time close to two hours. All we know about this dancer's life in Los Angeles is that he witnessed his brother's murder. For starters: has he himself ever fired a gun? DJ doesn't come to Atlanta with any noticeable baggage, which challenges the stereotype about hip-hop being a preventive measure against pacifism and feminism. DJ is a nice guy, a little too nice. He's boring. I'm not advocating that he smack his bitch up; I mean, April(Meagan Good), but a few rough edges would make for a more interesting protagonist. Neither the cardboard characters nor the okay dance sequences deliver us from noticing how the story unfolds, almost by rote. It's that predictable and completely devoid of any surprises. Expand

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 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. Expand
