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... read more

I normally hate these kinds of movies cause they are litered with black stereotypes. Boys N The Hood is a good movie though, and the message was good for the time being, but I get tired of the stereot

Why do you think that 'Boyz n the hood' is so bad? It is pretty much a classic but to each is own I guess.

Leffatykin arvostelut (108 movies items)

"(05.02.2008) 90-luvun alku oli gangsta rapin kulta-aikaa. Silloin lempimusiikkini ohella tehtiin katujen elämästä myös muutama nimeltä mainittava elokuva, kuten Boyz-N-The Hoodin varjoon turhaan jäänyt loistava Menace II Society. Elokuva kertoo erään mustan nuoren, Cainen (Tyren Turner) elämästä väkivallan, päihteiden ja rikosten täyttämässä Los Angelesin Wattsissa. Leffa aloittaa kuvaamalla Cainen lapsuutta 70-luvun lopulla huumekauppias-isän (Samuel L. Jackson), narkkari-"

"March 7 "Went into the store just to get a beer. Came out an accessory to murder and armed robbery. It's funny like that in the hood sometimes. You never knew what was gonna happen, or when. After that I knew it was gonna be a long summer." This was sitting in my want to watch list for a while and I decided to watch it now. I would have never guessed that I would give this movie a very high rating. I was just amazed by this movie from start to finish. Samuel L. Jackson was also great, despit"

"Gritty, realistic 'hood drama. Definitely going for the "Goodfellas" of Watts. Don't quite pull that off, but very good film over all."

"17.2. (DVD) (miitti) Riiwäätz miitin jälkimainingeissa ei oikein tahtonut toimia. Motherfuckinbitchassnigga-lesoaminen kävi kimppuun melkoisella stressaavuudella ja sai miettimään, miten tylsää getossa voi olla, jos näinkin ystävällismielisessä kaveripiirissä tahtoo hengailla. Tällä uusintakatselulla silmään pistivät myös älyttömät kuvan feidaukset sekä hatara juoni, joka saumattomuuden sijaan yritti ehtiä esittämään kaikki slummin negatiiviset puolet 90 minuutissa."
