Nick Cannon stars as an incoming freshman and talented snare drum player at the fictional Atlanta A&T University, a place where the halftime shows far outshine the football. In a beautiful trifecta of egos, he’s also an incorrigible show-off who clashes with his controlling percussion leader (Leonard Roberts) and his band director (Orlando Jones), a man so dead set against modern music he counters their rival band’s au courant hip-hop compositions with “Flight of the Bumblebee.” DRUMLINE’s depiction of black college life is a rare and much-needed addition to Hollywood cinema, yet its most tremendous achievement may lie in its production: the competition scenes showcase some of the greatest real-life marching bands of the South, and they are beautifully shot, heart-pounding affairs, with the final showdown being well worth the price of admission.
