A-Wax used a two-tone IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII when he, Caine, and O-Dog execute the carjackers at the take-out food stand. It is believed to be the .357 Magnum version, as A-Wax fired ten rounds (nine in the magazine and one in the chamber), but the prop weapon may be chambered in a larger caliber, since he fires ten rounds over the course of three takes (during which it's possible that the gun was reloaded off-camera between the takes).

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. See more »
Menace 2 Society is definitely the best "Ghetto Gangsta"-Movie of all time. So powerful, so strong. Perfectly showing the hard life young black people go through in the ghetto. The main-characters are Caine, and O-Dog. Caine, is not the typical gangsta, he had a very hard childhood, with a dealer as father and a junkie as mother, but he doesn't want to live this kind of live and trys to change it. O-Dog is the opposite, a young man who's afraid of nothing and always has trouble with the justice. The movie shows us the road that both, including there friends do in this strange world of drugs, violence and poverty.
The best film the Hugh-Brother ever made, simply a must see, you will love it!!!
