Editors Note
Note Charles Stone III's crowd-pleasing drama spotlights the previously unheralded 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 antagonistic 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.
New York Times "...Bouncy, boisterous and charming....[It] becomes downright thrilling when it shows the bands in action..." 12/13/2002 p.E35
USA Today "...Stone makes the drum competition scenes, already inherently photogenic, stirring to watch..." 12/13/2002 p.8E
Los Angeles Times "...[An] entertaining and enthusiastically told tale?.The film has also been smart in picking its lively, likable cast....If rhythm and movement are important to you, this is a film that deserves a spot on your dance card..." 12/13/2002 p.C12
Entertainment Weekly "DRUMLINE does more than capture the excitement of marching bands; it gets their clockwork beauty as well....Funny, sexy and rousing..." 01/03/2003 p.47
Box Office "...Saldana is beautiful and delightful..." 03/01/2003 p.61
