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

" Date: 11/10/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: I haven't seen this movie in ages and it still holds up. I still think the themes of the story in the movie are pretty relevant in today's world. The movie has a great cast of characters and very good acting in my opinion. You really feel and care about everyone in this movie. If you haven't seen this movie before, do it now. "

"12th of June, DVD Boyz n the Hood oli koskettava kuvaus kolmen nuoren aikuistumisesta ja ghettoelämän jättämisestä taakse. Menace II Society on puolestaan inhorealistinen kuvaus niistä nuorista, joille on jo lapsesta pitäen opetettu ampumaan aseella ja pärjäämään kovassa maailmassa. Päähenkilö Cainella ei ole yhtään uskoa tulevaan saati omaa henkiinjäämistään kohtaan, kunnes on jo liian myöhäistä. Tyrin Turnerin roolisuoritus Cainena on yksi vahvimmista roolisuorituksist"

30 From 93: My Favorite Films From 1993 (30 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.
