An important movie with a racist POVPlenty of reviewers here sing their praises of this movie. Read them. There is a lot of good in this film. My issue with this movie is the reverse racism. Having the character who serves as the voice of reason express the view that white men put gun shops and liquour stores in black neighborhoods in order to oppress blacks is as racist a statement as any I have ever seen. It teaches people to hate those of another color and is wildly hypocritical. Very disappointing..Score: 2/5

Never Fails to Amaze and InspireWhy Ice Cube was never even nominated for an Oscar I'll never know (his final scene alone should go down in history). I teach this film as part of both my Contemporary American Literature and Media Literacy classrooms. Its relevance goes far beyond South Central, and in fact can be used as a template to understand the true, hideous nature of the American global empire. A truly brilliant and timeless work of film as literature..Score: 5/5

Если вы хотите жить, вам не стоит соваться в лос-анджелесский квартал Южный Централ. Это очень опасное место, где обитают сплошь крутые черные парни — такие, например, как Тре и сводные братья Рики и Дагбой.Ежедневно варящиеся в этой адской кухне, заполненной насилием, невежеством и злобой, раю для наркоманов и убийц, они, кажется просто обречены пополнить ряды подонков общества и закончить свои дни с пулей в спине или со шприцом в вене.Но надежда вырваться из этого жуткого мира — и не ногами вперед — не покидает героев. Только вот Южный Централ не очень-то легко отпускает своих жертв…

Magyar
Fekete vidéknek hívják azt a területet Los Angelesben, ahol az állig felfegyverzett zsaruk az utcaképhez tartoznak, és egész nap köröznek a rendőrségi helikopterek. Aki élve kerül ki innen, annak nincs mitől tartania, az már mindent látott, mindent megtapasztalt. Tre Styles jó srác, itt nőtt fel, de nem rontotta el a környezete. Elege van abból, hogy vekkercsörgés helyett fegyverdörgésre ébred. És elege van abból is, hogy a legjobb haverjait látja összeesni egy-egy utcai tűzpárbaj során. Két barátjával elhatározza, kitörnek ebbol az ördögi körből. Ám fekete vidéken sötétek a kilátások.

Dansk
Tre venner vokser op i Los Angeles' barske forstæder, hvor vold og kriminalitet hører til hverdagens orden. Ricky (Morris Chestnut) er en dygtig fodboldspiller og prøver på den måde at komme ud af sumpen, mens hans halvbror 'Doughboy' (Ice Cube) overgiver sig fuldstændig til usunde fritidsinteresser som stoffer, forbrydelse og gadekamp. I midten står Tré Styles (Cuba Gooding Jr.).

Los Angeles gettolarında birlikte büyüyen üç arkadaşın öyküsünü anlatan film, kenar mahallede yaşanan olaylara içten bir bakış atmasıyla benzerlerinden ayrılıyor. Kardeş gibi Doughboy ve Ricky Baker birbirlerine benzememekle birlikte her an birlikte takılmaktadırlar. Üçüncü kişi ise Tre'dir. Üçlü şiddet ve uyuşturucunun konuştuğu mahallerinde kendilerini ispat etmeye çalışır. 90'lı yılların başında gettoda yaşayan siyah gençler arasında yükselen nefreti, şiddete olan eğilimi, doğasına yakın bir şekilde sunuyor film. Yönetmen bu filmi 23 yaşında çektiği için sinema dünyasının yeni dahilerinden biri olarak selamlandı ve henüz 24 yaşındayken Oscar ödülüne aday oldu.
