Sometimes a movie comes along that makes you reflect about the world and where it's headed. This is not one of those movies.Now, I like Samuel L. Jackson just as much as the next guy and I like Laurenz Tate, or however you spell his name, too. However, this movie sucks. The Hughes Brothers are good film-makers, but they are shitty writers. Menace II Society sucks and Dead Presidents sucks simply because they can't write for shit.
Boyz N the Hood is a great "ghetto movie," but that's about the only one I can think of. Menace II Society doesn't really do a good job of teaching a lesson or anything like that. The only people I know that like it are teenaged white kids who wished they lived in the ghetto for some reason.
I can't imagine anyone being stupid enough to kill two people in a convenient store then the person takes the tape and shows it to everyone with two eyes and brags about it. I don't care where this person grew up, why would anyone do that?
To tell you the truth, if I hadn't seen that this was rated #6 on the Top 20 list here at Hollywood Bitchslap out of every movie ever, I wouldn't even had wasted my time writing this. But, I felt that with all the great movies out there, why should something that sucks this bad be rated #6? Hopefully, me giving it a 1 will knock it completely off the list and into the gutter where it belongs.I could write a better ghetto movie than this and I live in the heart of Minnesota.
