Menace II Society
Sobering and incisive, this cautionary urban drama centers on 18-year-old Caine Lawson (Tyrin Turner), a street tough facing a moral quandary while trying to turn his life around, aided by a pragmatic girlfriend (Jada Pinkett Smith) and a caring teacher (Charles S. Dutton). Can Caine rise above the entrapments of the 'hood? Samuel L. Jackson plays Caine's junkie father, and Larenz Tate is a standout as hair-trigger homeboy O-Dog.
