The film tells the story of a terrible the hard life of Negroes in the ghetto of Los Angeles. You can be shot every minute, around the danger, all around mired in poverty, drug trafficking and murders. Life is nothing here stands as to kill someone that same thing to blow his nose. Kane (the protagonist) is not to say that would be happy to such circumstances, but all the same he grew up here and just not know nothing else. The plot is based on his search for himself, to be a recurring problem and all the same faith in that somewhere there is a better life. And in the end there is a dilemma whether leave to which feelings to begin a civilized life (get it under the question), or leave everything as is.

Empathize with the hero you want rather for the hard fate of which he was not elected, but not some special personal qualities. And it makes the movie so realistic — all shown without preukras. Here there is positive hero, Kane — only one Niger, which is certainly not is also like crazy for example, it PAL "O-Dog", but also willing to put another "black brother" a bullet between the eyes when case. Too dealing, and also steals cars at night.

Over one and a half hours, the film will surprise the audience and periodically thought-provoking. "The threat to society" the most powerful and realistic drama on the theme of black lives in America, seventies. I recommend everyone who is interested in this layer of history or those who always wanted to know about what kind of life is stated in most of the texts foreign "gangsta rap."

One of the first films in its genre. Apparently, almost every, even insignificant, a black Hollywood actor pays tribute to play in such films. It I mean Samuel L. Jackson, who played a cameo — father HS — in that movie.

All films in this collection is nothing special in terms of plot not differ as the two drops of water similar: there is a gg — the black guy who is struggling to live in difficult conditions, at this earning money on the streets of his neighborhood, selling drugs, committing robberies, murders and other illegal actions.

Why this film occupies such a significant place with all this crap that is coming out now? I think so: he went peak of occurrence action movie in Hollywood, when the ball is ruled by cool inflated guys, saving the world/ America from the next villains, at all so it was a tale that we just closed on it in again enjoying the beauty on the screen.

In the same the film, in spite of all reasonable (or rather, Hollywood) overflows
profanity, violent scenes of murder and rape and other delights of the streets of black neighborhoods. The more the film addresses this problem as racism America, when the police due to the fact that the only black guys, beat them.

It's already then they began to get all sorts of parodies in the style of "don't be a menace to South Central...", which we've all seen and laughed with them. But in this movie you will not to laugh.

In the ' 80s — the beginning of the 90s there were rare films in this direction, reflecting the problems of black neighborhoods and race relations in America. All they are quite similar story and how rule the sad ending.

At one time there was a very interesting movies so when recently came across this picture was surprised was her sign, although he knew parody ("don't be a menace to South Central").

The film is good, a lot of black "brothers" swear choicest swearing, talk on the slang, drink, smoke weed, Rob and kill everyone too very disappointed. However, something in not him as it seemed to me. And the reason for this, on my opinion, was that too many problems, it was decided to put in polutorachasovoj film. So most of them allow yourself to feel, to understand, not time to open up. And the film is serious about the hard a very difficult life in the ghetto. Perhaps it is OK, time to show us all, they say, and as I thought, but only a little bit, but in the end is not catchy, not makes you wonder. Well, and to top it off, a tragic end that almost don't feel like necessary.

You can watch the film, if you like such topics and, most likely, will impress, so as the film is quite graphic, violent and versatile, but my opinion — all that wanted to be able to convey to viewer, put in an hour and a half extremely difficult task.

But parody this film is more than successful.
