I'm sure Dickerson has strong feelings about inner-city problems, but if he does he can't convey them. Full Review
...An urgent, pulsating tone...
Poised halfway between the action conventions of New Jack City and the personal grit of Straight Out of Brooklyn, Juice doesn't have the pizzaz or the insight, to satisfy as either exploitation or art. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Commanding performances mesh with solid storytelling
Juice captures the traumatic and anxious roots of American gangsterism better than just about any other entry in the evergreen genre. Full Review
It is genuinely slickly made and often deliberately amusing. Full Review
An above-average story of four "boys in the hood." Full Review
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.
An exploration into the lives of four African-American teens and the repercussions of their decision to commit a robbery. The film takes a strong stand against the use of guns and violent crime, as a way of escaping inner-city poverty.
