I really think that the directors knew that (at that time) this movie would draw a lot of attention and that there would be a lot of fighting and acting bad at the theatres so they toned down the gang references a bit.

I forget if it was this movie or New Jack City where this guy (in Chicago) shot up the movie theatre. At any rate, after a movie like this the goons always act bad.


Tre wanna go to college and get out of the hood, Rick wanna go to military and don't wanna be like his brother like Cube but Tre didn't want Rick go to military because a black man have no place go to military.

If it doesn't have anything to do with Bloods and Crips then why did Cube give that speech about "how they don't know whats going on in the hood?".

When Cube said that I was assuming he was refering to the gang violence....yes we all know that Tre and Rick weren't gang affiliated....But the movie did center around gang activities and how it affected Tre and Rick.

Rick died because of what?....

I agree that it was a good movie about gang violence...if it was about the bloods and crips though I would have to change my rating because I learned very little (specifically) about those gangs from the movie.

That's all I'm saying.

If Boyz N Da Hood was about bloods and crips? It did a terrible job exposing it. Gang violence appeared to be the theme moreso than isolating two gangs popular in Cali.

Boyz N The Hood had a better storyline.

Both movies were based in different parts of south central and did a good job showing it.

Boyz N The hood= places like Crenshaw, Dena, compton etc...

Menace= Inglewood, Watts, Long Beach, the more wild places if you will.

And Boyz n The hood wasnt about crips n bloods, tho it did have crips n bloods in the movie.

scene:

*Red Car drives around the corner*

Monster: "If that muthafukka roll up on the SET one mo time ima blast his ass"

Obviously dudes who shot Ricky were bloods, and doughboy and them were in crips.

i like menace II society, but boyz n the hood is up there for me. the last 15 minutes of the movie really gets to me all the time. the turn of events between both sides, and the outcome of the situations.

and yes. furious styles ftw. the guy really tried his hardest to set his son the right direction.

Menace had it all

I hadnt watched it in years and I sat down recently and watched it again.. The sh*t was soo violent, I was kinda shocked

but it also had the best quotes and the same messages that Boyz in the hood had except they expanded everything more

Also, I was disappointed in Higher Learning because that movie couldve been as good but it never lived up to potential.. It was too Black vs. White without the proper reasoning being laid out
