Ilena's weight fluctuates throughout the film. When we first see her at the barbecue, she is somewhat slim. When she is shown talking to Caine on the phone, which because of her pregnancy is presumably within a month later, she is noticeably heavier. See more »
I thought killing those fools would make me feel good, but it really didn't make me feel anything. I just knew that I could kill somebody, and if I had to, I could do it again.

A Powerful and Great film from The Hughes Brothers
Menace II Society is a film of power and a desperate killing spree just in a little neighborhood. The film was very good, on all levels this is sure the best Hughes Brothers film. I've only seen Dead Presidents and From Hell, which I thought were both good movies, but this is The Hughes Brothers best film and this is so far the best ghetto film I've ever seen. There was some flaws but the movie makes it out like there really isn't any. The acting was good, Tyrin Turner, I've never really heard of and Larenz Tate I've see in Dead Presidents. The action was good and the movie was extremely powerful. Overall, this was a very neat ghetto film by The Hughes Brothers.
Hedeen's outlook: 9/10 ***+ A-
