I went into this movie expecting it to be better than Menace II Society and not as good as Boyz in the Hood. For the most part, I was right. It is a better film than Menace, but not as good of a watch. It doesn't even touch Boyz n the Hood. I am shocked that people try to make a comparison of the two. I dunno, this just didn't really do it for me. I love the Genre of film that explores the plight of growing up black in a poor neighborhood. This one was weird. It is worth the watch if you like this type of film. I wasn't a fan of the cast, and the writing was contrived. I see n here that a lot of people have this movie on their Top List, so I think I might be alone. Check it out, or don't.
