  • When Caine and O-Dog, two handsome boyz-from-the-hood, breeze into a Korean grocery, the anxious grocer and his watchful wife find their imposing presence troubling. Resentful of the sharp-eyed survelliance and air of suspicion around them, Caine and O-Dog yell epithets at the mom-and-pop owners. Angered by the shouting match and a remark about his mother, trigger-happy O-Dog shoots the grocers. On his way out, Caine grabs the videotape from the store's security camera. Back in the 'hood, O-Dog makes a boastful ritual of showing the tape to friends who find his recklessness funnier than amateur night at the Apollo. But it's just a matter of time before the cops catch up with Caine and O-Dog, especially since Caine's fingerprints were on the 40-ounce bottle he dropped at the scene of the crime.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A very flashy debut....Crackling ensemble acting..."
    New York Times

    "...Groundbreaking..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Fierce, violent and searing in its observation, the film makes all previous excursions seem like a walk in the park....There is a poetry to the images that is immediate and visceral..."
    Variety

    "...As well-directed a film as you'll see from America this year, an unsentimental and yet completely involving story of a young man who cannot see a way around his fate..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Along with BOYZ N THE HOOD, this marks the film world's awakening to a dark period of gang violence in early-'90s LA."
    Uncut
