Boyz N the Hood (1991)

boyzBy Scott Goldfine

Filmmaker John Singleton, 23, makes an impressive debut with this powerful film about a gang-infested neighborhood in Los Angeles. The story centers on three boys who grow up struggling to make something of themselves despite living in a war zone.

Amateurish moments only slightly diminish this stirring effort, which features a splendid performance by rapper Ice Cube as the complex Doughboy.” Also stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne and Morris Chesnutt. Rated R.
