The marching bands' duels are as fun as the cheerleader wars in "Bring It On." Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
If all this does not quite add up to a coherent movie, it does produce a bouncy, boisterous and charming one, which becomes downright thrilling when it shows the bands in action. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Because the script is smart enough not to insult us and to develop a group of interesting characters, the act of watching the film is an entertaining experience rather than a tedious exercise. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Brimming with heart and humor -- Drumline is a formulaic crowdpleaser set in the competitive world of university marching bands at predominantly black universities. Full Review
Jonathan Curiel
San Francisco Chronicle
These aren't the marching band songs of your father's or mother's generation but a musical expression that is modern and exciting to watch. Full Review
