Menace II Society (1993) Poster

Alternate Versions

The Criterion Collection director's cut on LaserDisc includes the following additional footage:
  • An extra shot of bullets leaving the back of the guy Samuel L. Jackson kills


  • An extra shot of Awax holding the gang member while he shoots him


  • An small scene showing how Caine and O Dog brake into the car in the garage


  • Two extra shots of bullet wounds during the final scene


  • It also includes two deleted scenes; the funeral of Caine's cousin and a scene at his grandparents' house after the funeral


UK video, LaserDisc, and the initial DVD versions were cut to remove footage of O-Dog unlocking a car door by using a metal strip. The cuts were restored to the 2003 DVD.
The Hughes brothers, when queried about the film's explicit content, have often talked about a "prison riot" scene that studio execs forced them to cut in order to avoid an NC-17 rating. The scene has yet to appear in any of the released versions of the film.
