Customer Review

on February 10, 2004
Charles Stone III`s crowd-pleasing drama/comedy spotlights the previously never done world of university marching bands more specifically, the cutthroat world that energizes Southern black campuses. Devon Miles (Nick Cannon) is a Harlem teenager who receives a full scholarship to attend Atlanta A&T University based on his excellent percussion talents. However, making the transition from hip-hop street drumming to the drumline of the school`s legendary marching band is more challenging than Miles expected. For one, the band director, Dr. Lee (Orlando Jones), is determined to reclaim the national championship using old-school tactics, even though his traditional beliefs appear to be leaving A&T in the dust. And then there is Sean (Leonard Roberts), the current drum leader, who is threatened by Devon`s skills and frustrated by his fierce individuality. These forces, as well as the addition of a cheerleading love interest (Zoe Saldana), combine to test Devon`s previously unshakeable confidence. As the season builds toward the BET Big Southern Classic and a showdown with rival Morris Brown University, Devon must swallow his pride and learn to be a team player if he wants his band to win the championship. DRUMLINE proves that any subject can make for an invigorating work of entertainment, if handled properly.
The movie has a number of talented young actors robert leonard,jason weaver (switched,smart guy), GQ Jayson ( drumline, what's the worse that can happen, on the line).
