he came through with a very intense and harrowing performance.

After seeing this many times over the years, I must say that the characters in this movie makes it worth watching.

Besides the fact there were four black male youth going nowhere one of them had to be a homicidal maniac.

Intense and unpredictable .

Equally gripping is Omar Epps' Q, struggling vainly against the nightmare his world has become, the judgment of the ledge looming in his future.

Things take an unexpected turn when Bishop is hooked to the thrill of the gun killing the clerk and others.

The bizarre haircuts and clothes are outweighed by the genuinely enjoyable music (although the background scoring is sometimes too much).

The scene where Bishop guns down Radamez is a thrilling scene.

It is an engrossing pleasure to watch Bishop (played with disturbing intensity by Tupac Shakur) as his already thin shell of morality, held tentatively in place by his crew, erodes completely away...

Ho-Hum .

Intense and believable .

This was a great fast paced movie that I had no problem watching in one sitting.

All in all "Juice" is an entertaining movie, with great individual performances and a storyline that gives a fresh take on the genre, and has allowed this film to become a cult classic over the years.

Atmospheric and Gripping .

An entertaining thriller with good performances .

Seriously this movie was intense man, it really does show how poor black neighbourhoods are dangerous and not safe places to live in.

This is worth the watch, if you enjoy your action movies.

Me and my sister showed this movie to our little brother because he's been caught stealing SEVERAL times from the family business - so we made him watch this and he rather-ed enjoyed it until the killing came along.

Juice is actually a fairly entertaining thriller with good performances.

Overall, the plot is nothing particularly special, but the film is worth seeing just to see Tupac's intense and sometimes scary performance.

To be honest, I honestly don't understand why people would go near the places, its just very intense.

This picture is a disturbing but gripping urban thriller that details the lives of four youngsters who drift aimlessly day by day in search of manhood and self-respect.

Worst movie I have ever seen .

It's worth watching it.

Power, respect, street cred are all things associated with "Juice" the 1992 coming of age film directed by Ernest Dickerson.

Mildly amusing and predictable story.

Ultimately this film succeeds in creating a very compelling, dramatic, and tense atmosphere with strong themes of betrayal, friendship, and brotherhood.

Top performances from Epps and Shakur make this film watchable, the story a fairly mundane one of street youth gangs drifting into crime in search of kicks, streetcred and "juice" (or power).

mind blowing movie...
