In the ghettos of Harlem you don't buy respect...you earn it.
Four harlem buddies hold up a store, and one of them gets hooked on the thrill of the gun.

"Pulses with feeling...an exciting movie.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
Best friends Q (Omar Epps), Bishop (Tupac Shakur), Raheem (Khalil Kain), and Steel (Jermaine 'Huggy' Hopkins) live in a world where fun and danger exist side-by-side, and violence is powerfully seductive. These four Harlem friends take on the neighborhood-- and each other--to get the power and respect they call Juice. |

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"...Bracing performances from a cast of newcomers....JUICE is an exciting, disturbing movie that pulses with feeling..." 02/06/1992 p.89

New York Times
"...[Dickerson] has a terrific eye and some juice of his own....[He] elicits warm, uncomplicated performances from his actors..." 01/17/1992 p.C10

USA Today
"...An urgent, pulsating tone..." 01/17/1992 p.4D

Entertainment Weekly
"...The film is an inflammatory morality play shot through with rage and despair....[Dickerson] is a born filmmaker. He captures the jittery, combative rhythm of a way of life..." 01/24/1992 p.34

Los Angeles Times
"...A vivid, promising piece of work..." 01/17/1992 p.F1

Chicago Sun-Times
"...Much of the strength of the film comes from the actors....Dickerson finds a rhythm that uses the visuals instead of just flaunting them..." 01/17/1992 p.37

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
... The scene-setting opening moments of Juice seem almost too picturesque, but then we feel the underlying logic of the story, and Dickerson finds a rhythm that uses the visuals instead of just flaunting them. Juice...is like a reaction to years of movies that have glamorized urban violence. There is a real terror in the faces of these kids as they realize that people have died, that guns kill... - Roger Ebert
