3.0 out of 5 stars A hard-hitting drama to remember for a long time to come!, 3 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Menace II Society [DVD] (DVD)
Originally released in 1993, Menace to society was, i am led to believe, nearly banned for it's brutal portrail of growing up in a bad area and around bad people. A film which pulls no punches, and over-flowing with guns, drugs and a general bad attitude, it centres around a guy called Cain who is born into this world and how he copes with it, along with his group of friends. Whilst i enjoyed this film, the main flaw with it is that you learn virtually nothing about the main characters's pasts or why they're in the situation they're in. This makes the characters very one-dimensional and very hard to relate to or feel sorry for. Because of this, the violence in it, at times, seems exploitative and pointless. That said, the overall film message remains the same and is very valid. A film definately worth owning but, at the same time, its no masterpiece
