5.0 out of 5 stars boyz 'n' the hood, 20 Aug 2003
In the beginning this film may appear to be an excuse to show violence and poverty on screen but it quickley develops into a powerful story focusing on a group of friends as they grow older. The story mainly focuses on Doughboy, Ricky (who are brothers) and, Tre.
