Feel Good Movie...even if you've seen it all before...
10 January 2007 | by pinknole05See all my reviews

From the opening battle scene in Los Angeles to the heart-pumping wanna get up and cheer/dance nationals competition in the end, Stomp the Yard was, although somewhat cliché, a pretty impressive movie. The acting (which seeing a movie similar to this-You Got Served that had horrible acting) was better than expected. The step battles were a feast for the senses and really showcased the extreme talent of the competitors. With a plot line fairly similar to other leave one dangerous city to go to Atlanta and be successful movies, one would assume you would have nothing new to learn, which is mostly true, so avoid it if you have something against this genre. Other than that, if you are looking for a movie to surpass the typical crap that is released in January and don't mind a recycled plot (done a little better this time of course) see Stomp the Yard.
