I already saw this movie but, since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. There was a time, in the 90’s, when there was some kind of wave of movies dealing with the black ghettos in the US, it was called the ‘hood’ genre, and, from all these movies, this must be the most famous one they made. In fact, in this genre, I always preferred ‘Menace II Society’ which was... read more

This is an extremely powerful film that digs far deeper into the root origins of this cycle of systemic racism and apartheid that hurts black communities.

Description: John Singleton's portrayal of social problems in inner-city Los Angeles takes the form of a tale of three friends growing up together 'in the 'hood.' Half-brothers Doughboy and Ricky Baker are foils for each other's personality, presenting very different approaches to the tough lives they face. Ricky is the 'All-American' athlete, looking to win a football scholarship to USC and seeks salvation through sports, while 'Dough' succumbs to the violence, alcohol, and crime surrounding him in his environment, but maintains a strong sense of pride and code of honor. Between these two is their friend Tre, who is lucky to have a father, ... (more)

" Tre is sent to live with his father, Furious Styles, in tough South Central Los Angeles. Although his hard-nosed father instills proper values and respect in him, and his devout girlfriend Brandi teaches him about faith, Tre's friends Doughboy and Ricky don't have the same kind of support and are drawn into the neighborhood's booming drug and gang culture, with increasingly tragic results. The feature debut of John Singleton, Boyz ‘n the Hood is a stark look at South Central Los Angeles,"

Hard, thoughtful film with messages for everybody

“John Singleton's Boyz n the Hood remains one of the best fictionalized and most poignant summaries of some of America's toughest internal problems - racism, violence, poverty, and drug abuse. This is not a hip-hop film, nor a detached and dehumanized story about "gang violence" (the great over-simplified scapegoat of the issues treated in this film), its a story about growing up fatherless or motherless in a war zone with a faceless enemy, where people do not value each other's lives at all and value their own lives only slightly more.

Laurence Fishburn leads one of the best casts of the early 1990s, in his memorable portrayal of Furious Styles, a father trying to raise his son (Cuba Gooding Jr) well in an environment where murder and substance abuse are day-to-day realities - So” read more

"24.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Pelkästään vuoden 2004 aikana helposti 30 kertaa kuppaiselta TV-nauhoitukselta katsottu Kulman kundit on sittemin vähän harvemmin tullut katsotuksi, viimeksi arviolta ehkä 2006. Ja tämänkin osalta, kuten vuoden ekana katsottu Unissakävelijät, tarjoaa erinomainen BD vähän erilaisen katselukokemuksen. Hyvin toimii kaikilla aloilla ja lopun keskeinen jakso meinaa vieläkin nostaa palan kurkkuun. En tiedä johtuuko elokuvan itsensä ansioista vai onko jote"
