Former drumline member here. Well damn, I guess I&#39;ll be the first drummer to say I liked the movie a lot. I swear, half of these reviews I&#39;m reading are annoying - people bashing it because it&#39;s an all black movie, people bashing it because the band has dancers instead of a color guard, people calling the drumming rudimentary because they played in a drumline that did better blah blah blah.<br/><br/>What do you guys want, a documentary on marching band? If I was to make a Hollywood movie about the drumline I would have done the same exact things with the drum sequences - put in a gang of stick tricks and showmanship that would translate well to the screen. Nobody wants to watch flam taps for 90 minutes.<br/><br/>That being said, the last drum battle is one of my favorite things to watch. I love when the bass drum cadence comes in, the basses march in a circle, the quads toss each other their sticks between bars, and the snares have an orgy of backsticking and other stick tricks on a level you rarely see performed in real life. And the movie is only cliche as far as its kid w/ bad attitude needs to put his pride away plot goes. I don&#39;t watch Nickelodeon so I haven&#39;t seen one of those types of movies since I was... hmmm since I was 5. Far as what isn&#39;t cliche about it, there&#39;s a lot to like. One of the best things is that it immerses itself in Afro-American culture w/out any cliches at all - just life as it is down south at an all-black university. No guns, drugs, none of that stuff that you&#39;d expect from a character who walks and talks like Nick Cannon&#39;s character does. I also liked the way they handled the white character in the band. The dialogue where they ask him why he went to the all-black college. His first reply is a wink at the audience, which would expect Hollywood to trivialize race relations like that. Then he goes, nah for real though, and gives a sincere answer that makes sense.

I&#39;m not a musician and know little about marching bands. However, this movie captivated my attention. The athleticism of these musical marchers was something I had never thought about until watching this excellent movie. The music is wonderful and the drumline competition puts the dueling banjos of yesterday to shame. The story line delivers a good message of how raw talent can be molded into disciplined success. The concept of teamwork and individual goals are blended into a believable and inspiring movie. I found the acting to be very good and will look for the cast in future movies. Nick Cannon and Orlando Jones never leave any doubt about the characters they are playing.

The &quot;talented young smart-ass goes to college and learns there&#39;s more to life than being skillful or clever&quot; theme is an old one and it&#39;s been done better many times in the past. Robert Young learned about teamwork in &quot;Navy Blue and Gold.&quot; More recently Rob Lowe learned the lesson in &quot;Oxford Blues.&quot; The difference between Drumline and these and other older films on the same theme is that the lead characters evoked more sympathy. Nick Cannon&#39;s Devon Miles character is a self-centered, posturing, swaggering jackass who evokes immediate dislike and though you see him grow up a little in the course of the film, you never really learn to like or respect him.<br/><br/>Drumline also suffers from an identity crisis of its own. You&#39;re never really sure what sort of story it wants to tell. Is is a &quot;coming of age&quot; story, a drama, a comedy, a romance? It tries to be all of these at once and never seals the deal on any of them.<br/><br/>Drumline could have told a good story about a New York kid learning that there&#39;s more than one way to be black in this world. There are a couple of hints of that in Devon&#39;s relationship with Laila. Her comment to Devon: &quot;Southern sisters don&#39;t date...we have boyfriends,&quot; could have been an opening to a good subplot about differences in black culture between different parts of the US, but, as with so many other possible plots, the story touches it lightly, and then flits off to something else. An arrogant young freshman such as Devon would have had many lessons to learn while finding his way in this environment, but the film misses nearly every opportunity to show us the relationships between the characters in any depth, so the performances come off as predictable and mechanical.<br/><br/>All the same, I&#39;ve seen Drumline several times and enjoyed it for what it does very well. The presentation of the music and and the work that goes into running a big university marching band are very good. I could have done with more of both. The all-too-brief glimpses of life at a black southern university are well done. Again, I could have done with more of that as well. Drumline also had moments of humor, and some visually engaging camera work, especially in the music scenes.<br/><br/>I like this movie. I just wish it had been better done.
