Film Review

Menace II Society is a very grim yet very real feeling movie. In my opinion it is the best "hood" movie I've seen, even better than Boyz N Tha Hood. The main character Caine, like Trey from BNTH, is a smart young man growing up on the streets of South Central LA. Where as Trey was a good kid with level-headed parents, Caine grew up with a junkie mom and a drug dealing father, both dead by the time he was ten. He follows in his father's footsteps, selling drugs while graduating high school.The movie doesn't try to portray Caine as a hero nor a villain necessarily, rather as a young man caught in a life that many young men in his neighborhood live. In the end he is murdered as he packs up to leave the ghetto with his girlfriend and her son, showing us that even though he decided to change he still received consequences for his past actions. A sad yet very real portrayal.

Rated R for strong violence,drug use and language Quebec Rating:16+(should be 13+) Canadian Home Video Rating:R(should be 18A)I had the opportunity of seeing Menace 2 Society yesterday night on IFC.I have heard about the film before but I never actually saw it.I have seen Boyz In The Hood and it is hard to choose which film is the better one.Boyz In The Hood is more of a dramatic film with more of a plot while Menace 2 Society is more of an action film.Both films are great and I recommend either renting or buying both films.Back in 1993 this film was considered very violent.Its tame by today's standards however.The film starts off with Caine and his crazy friend O-Dog going into a store for a beer.However the owners of the store are afraid of them and one of them says something bad about O-Dog's mother.Then O-Dog kills both of them,robs the store and takes the tape.We briefly see some clips of the 1965 Watts Riots.Then we are taken to the late 1970's where Caine is a littl…

it avoids the "we’re victims of the man" attitude that most mainstream blaxploitation films spout as some sort of social conscious to paper over the action, this one presents the character and action raw. It reminds me of clockwork orange where you are invited into the private, sick world of the "protagonist", You kind of like him, in spite of the fact that he and his friends are despicable and self centered louts of no redeeming social value. It doesn’t fall for the usual socio-rationalizations; these guys didn’t have it so bad and they deliberately turned their backs on society and morality. The worse thing about their lives are the role models, most of them despicable but his kind Xtian grandparents, friends and sensible girlfriend make a futile attempt to get him to turn his life around. The men chose the wrong path and were willing to face the consequences. The action was intense and senseless; murders over stupid insults or petty theft. Even KayDee, goes from…
