Editor's Note
John Singleton emerged from USC film school with his passionate script already written, and at age 23 he made the film that spawned a score of ghetto dramas. From the opening shot--a sign reading "Stop"--to the final message of "Increase the Peace," Singleton's desire to galvanize his audience is clear. The violence destroying South Central Los Angeles is seen through the eyes of Tre Styles (Cuba Gooding Jr.), whose intelligence and common sense would be wasted in the 'hood if not for his father, Furious (Laurence Fishburne), who imparts discipline and responsibility to his son. Tre's friends aren't so lucky, though, especially Doughboy (Ice Cube), who has been in and out of institutions since childhood and now sits on his porch with a forty in his hand and a pistol in his waistband. Singleton is ambitious enough to tackle a host of problems, from African American business practices to the bias of the SAT test, but the real power of the film lies in the performances of its principals. Cuba Gooding, in his first role, doesn't let Tre come off like a goody two-shoes, while Ice Cube gives a tragic nobility to a young man who knows he's doomed.

Expert Review Boyz n the Hood - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: The Other Chad Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 7/26/2011 4:03 PM
It has been twenty years since the release of writer-director John Singleton’s, Boyz n the Hood, and now the film is available on Blu-ray for the first time. One of the most celebrated debut’s in movie history, Boyz n the Hood has been credited with opening a lot of eyes to the violent realities facing African-Americans living in urban areas. In this case it’s South Central Los Angeles, where a number of young men are trying – with varying degrees of success – to stay out trouble....read the full review

Plot Summary
Since the age of 10, Tre Styles (Cuba Gooding Jr.) has been living with his father in South Central Los Angeles--where the challenge lies in simply staying alive long enough to become a man. To make matters worse, Tre's friend Doughboy (Ice Cube) is on the wrong path. John Singleton's directorial debut is part bildungsroman, part gangster film, part call-to-arms for an African American community besieged by violence, drug use, teen pregnancy, and AIDS.
