    a movie we can relate to

    Great story line compells you to watch. My favorite character was kane he was the perfect person to play the part. The way the movie started grabbed you and pulled you in espcially if you could relate to the neighborhood, it made you care for the character and the ending really put it all together. the sound track was pretty good also with the latest artist biggest songs. Overall it was a great movie. This is a great movie that everyone should see this review can teach you alot about life. you can check my review out on bn

    the best of urban drama

    This movie is a movie that all young black men and white people should see. It shows you how young blacks mostly in rough California hoods live. Some still live the gangbanging and drugselling lifestyles and they should watch so that they can change their lifestyle in the future since most black men dont get to see 25.

    Very Good(Spoiler Alert)

    I don't think it beats 'Boyz N The Hood', but 'Menace II Society' is one of those films that you can't hate. The characters are memorable, like O-Dog(my favorite character), Caine, and Ronnie(an always beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith). The film is moving and the amazing finale is one of the greatest scenes in film. Caine and O-Dog aren't people to like, but in the end you like them both to some extent. O-Dog is very charming and has a great smile in every scene he's in. Caine is a lil less emotional until the jail scene, which really shows that he's lost himself in the crime world. Jada is the only likeable character that you enjoy when you first meet her. The message is 'what goes around comes around' and that if you treat people badly, bad things come back for you. Caine tries to change but by that time it's too late. Some people complain about O-Dog(the more violent of the two) surviving and Caine dying, but the bad guy doesn't always die. Sometimes it is the person with emotion and feeling that dies. The supporting cast is amazing, and every scene is very realistic. 'Boyz N The Hood' was amazing and a better film than this, but 'Menace II Society' is still an amazing piece of work. See this for your own good.

    Real Life

    I fully recommend this movie to everyone. This movie is about a gangster lifestyle and how one becomes a criminal out of desperate conditions. Caine's grandfather raises the question of ''Do you care whether you live or die?'' It's easy to see that, ''you never know what or when, but in the end it all catches up with you.'' Do what you have to do, but just watch your back!

    DAMN I AIN'T THINK HE WOULD COME BACK LIKE THIS BLASTIN!!

    I'm 14 and I love this movie!I think that Cain is one of the best characters of all time when it comes to black movies.This movie is one of the best movies i have ever seen.My favorite scene is when Cain has that guy held up in the drive thru.The fact that he graduted high school in the hood and in the end he was killed any ways is mind blowing.I definatly recommend this movie to people who are older then 13!!

    A True Hood movie

    Man, when I saw this film and how it can catch your heart and emotions so easily it made me realise how weak other films are. Menace II Society is an amzing tale of life in the ghetto and how it can affect you. Tupac was originaly meant to be in this movie and it's a real shame that he wasn't.

    CREATED BY SOCIETY

    THIS FILM DEPICTS WHATS WRONG WITH OUR CITIES. THE POVERTY, THE WEAPONS AVAILIBILITY AND THE I DON'T GIVE A $%^& MENTALITY OF GOVERNMENT CAUSES WHAT WE SEE IN THE FILM. THE CHARACTER O-DOG IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE PENALTY AMERICA IS PAYING FOR IGNORING ITS YOUTH, ESPECIALLY THE BLACK INNER CITY YOUTH. I HOPE OUR YOUNG SEE THIS FILM AND REVERSE THEIR ATTITUDE TOWARDS EACH OTHER. WITH ALLAH'S BLESSING THIS WILL HAPPEN. PEACE!!!
