Life-changing for people to get them out of the streets.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

Beware, crude language and reality based violence! This 1991 film is probably one of the best at depicting what urban African-American youth have to go through in an attempt to survive. See an all star cast of Cuba Gooding, Jr, Ice Cube, Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne, and Morris Chestnut. Laurence Fishburne plays the knowledgeable adult who understands that the establishment forces are the root of violence in the African-American community and African-American youth are victims of those establishment forces.

John Singleton's best film that is extremely TIMELESS and forever relevant period.I just saw it again recently and it will always hold up extremely well because the hood in real life will never get better at all period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

John singleton really got this movie right because I lived in LA and what the movie showed was really how it was living in the hood. And just like Doughboy said in the movie "Either they don't know, or they don't show, or they just don't give a ****," it's true. The only sad part of the movie is that black men killing each others for stupid reasons (colors, turf, etc.). But Tre showed that you can overcome tragic situations to better yourself to be a normal human being in spite of overwhemling odds.
