Jeff's Reviews

Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Boyz n the Hood (1991)

Directed by John Singleton

Starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Laurence Fishburne, Hudhail Al-Amir, Lloyd Avery II


Started the craze of black gangster films.

A lot like Singleton’s own Higher Learning, only I thought this one felt a bit more mature. Fishburne plays virtually the same character: a stable black crutch for a screwed black world.
