There are many movies about the ghettos in America and most of them are actually rather forgettable. However, there are a few exceptions and this movie is definitely one of them. Indeed , I thought it was a great and heartbreaking movie and, in my opinion, it was even slightly better than "Boyz n the hood". I mean, both movies are really good and eventually "Boyz n the hood" got a lot of attention... read more

200 & 99 Of My Favorite Films From The 1990's (299 movies items)

"The early 90's were some of the best times for movies about the realities of living in "da 'hood". Juice, Fresh, Boyz 'N' The Hood (my fave of the batch) and of course, Menace II Society. All films that took an unsparing look into the poor urban areas of this country and provide realistic and jarring portrayals of young people whose only hope to survive on the streets is with a hardcore heart, a take it when I can get it attitude and a gun.

"18.06. DVD. Uusintakatselu. Ei muutoksia pisteissä. Parempi kuin ekalla katselulla, sillä silloin tämä gangstailu tuntui jotenkin lapsellisemmalta. Kerrontaäänen käyttö on välillä kyllä ihan perseestä ja Goodfellas vaikutteet näkyvät."

A very good movie

“There are many movies about the ghettos in America and most of them are actually rather forgettable. However, there are a few exceptions and this movie is definitely one of them. Indeed , I thought it was a great and heartbreaking movie and, in my opinion, it was even slightly better than "Boyz n the hood". I mean, both movies are really good and eventually "Boyz n the hood" got a lot of attention whereas this movie went by pretty much unnoticed. I preferred this one because "Boyz..." ended up with a rather hopeful message while this movie was bleak and relentless from the beginning until the end and it made more sense to me. Indeed, for most of the people living in those ghettos, there is no happy ending at the end, just a lot of misery along the way. It is such a shame that the Hughes b” read more
