Boyz n the Hood

This is the other film along with “Menace II society” that I had never watched.

It is very similar to Menace II Society, but so real. In Menace II Society you could be watching the film and next thing someones getting killed, it was always a surprise. In Boyz n the Hood you can kind of guess when something was going to happen. There is also humour in parts and it’s not as serious.

Tre played by Cuba Gooding Jr is sent to live with his father by his mother (Angela Bassett) after he keeps getting into trouble at school. His father played by Laurence Fushburne is a great role model and tries to give Tre the best strict upbringing, so that he can succeed in life.

Doughboy (Ice Cube) and Ricky (Morris Chestnut) both brothers are Tre’s best friends. Ricky is a talented athlete an hoping to go to university on a scholarship and Doughboy is in an out of prison and is in the life of drugs, gangs, guns and crime.

The film is not focused on crime in the hood, instead it shows how easy it is to get caught up in it even if your not in a gang. This film is really a great film and along with Menace II Society, I would recommend you to watch. You won’t be disappointed.
