Menace II Society | 1993 | R | - 2.9.9

Modern-day tragedy about life in the American ghetto, specifically south-central LA, it follows a young man as he becomes more and more caught up in the business of the street -- crime, murder and revenge. By the time he decides to turn away, it may be too late. Directed by 21-year-old twin brothers Allen and Albert Hughes.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - No nudity. One implied sex scene -- lots of kissing in bed, but no nudity shown (everything is under sheets).

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - The film is very, very violent. Mostly gunplay, but also a few brutal fist fights. A store owner is shot several times, and we see him lying in a pool of blood. Another character is shot through the stomach, another is shot in the head, and another in the shoulder. Again, there's lots and lots of blood. There are three very violent beatings, and one extremely violent scene at the end of the film: it's a drive-by shooting, and the victims are literally torn apart by the bullets. Blood is everywhere, from start to finish.

LANGUAGE 9 - Lots. F-words and all other four-letter words are employed and used frequently throughout the film. There are simply too many to count.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Murder, revenge, premarital sex, theft, drug addiction, drug peddling.

MESSAGE - The choices you make early on can effect the rest of your life. Sometimes it is really too late for some people to change.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
