This movie is an old time favourite of mine, I watch this movie at least twice a year. My children have watched it & it makes them grateful for growing up with mixed races, where there is no racial conflict, no gang affiliations, no driveby shootings & I think this was the opening for Cuba & Ice's movie careers to take off!! Also giving huge praise for single parents in America having to raise their children in neighbourhoods with a 50/50 chance of surviving & making it to college/university.. this movie is worth watching..
Boyz N The Hood is the critically acclaimed story about three friends growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood, and of street life where friendship, pain, danger and love combine to form reality. “The Hood” is a place where drive-by shootings and unemployment are rampant. But it is also a place where harmony co-exists with adversity, especially for the three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father, and Ricky's best friend, Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond the “The Hood.” In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Larry Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems like the only recourse. This powerful portrait of black urban America is “a film of enormous relevance and importance,” –Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.
