It’s National Step Off time, and rivalries are running hot.  The Theta Nus have new pledge Chance Harris (Collins Pennie).  Chance is caught up in his own troubles, too caught up to stay focused on the competition.  He has problems with his dad, problems with his girl and problems with the local gangs.

This is the sequel to the US box office hit, Chance tries to find balance in his life while training, working and performing in a famous national televised dance event.  Stomp the Yard: Homecoming unites a powerful cast featuring Terrence J and Pooch Hall with a soundtrack packed with pulse-pounding tracks.

The cast also includes Terrence J ( #1 Rated ), Stephen tWitch Boss (TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance), Pooch Hall (The Game), Kiely Williams (The Cheetah Girls), Keith David (Death at a Funeral, The Princess and the Frog), Tika Sumpter (TVs “One Life to Live) and a featured appearance by Columbus Short (Stomp the Yard, Death at a Funeral).


This energetic dance film is centred on the countdown to a national step-off contest with the competition being very strong and full of talented dancers from all around the US. The story touches on family, relationships, street violence and the high-energy, thrill a minute dance routines that the stars make look effortless.

This video is being reviewed by Lulu, a 13 year old reviewer, since this deals with kids in a high school situation, we felt it was best represented by someone in that age group.

Lulu:

I felt the ending of this video was unexpected and worth sitting through the movie.  I had not seen the first movie, Stomp the Yard, however after watching this one, I would really like to see the first one as well. It is really exciting,  and you never really knew exactly what they were going to face.

The main character Chance, is trying to lead his life without any help, and that gets him and his friends into more trouble.

It’s exhilarating  and makes you think, I wanna dance like that, that’s awesome! It’s a great movie to watch with family or friends.  As its appropriate for both.  It’s like a drama dance movie, and everyone at some point wants to see one of those.  The plotline is very good,  throughout the whole movie, I didn’t at any point think it wasn’t interesting, or it was a dull part of the movie. Which you might do in other movies.

Chance, in my eyes, is trying too hard to handle all his problems by himself and that at some point, he’s going to hurt a lot of people, which he did in this movie.

All in all, it was a fantastic movie and I would recommend it to all teens, and families, as it is a great movie to sit and watch with your brothers, sisters and friends.
