Did You Know?

Trivia

The title of the film and Angie Thomas's novel refers to the concept of THUG LIFE - the acronym for The Hate U Give Little Infants Fucks Everybody (the hatred we inculcate in children eventually destroys us all) - developed by the rapper Tupac Shakur. See more »

Goofs

When the girls were riding with King in his car, the speedometer and RPM tachometer were clearly visible in backseat view shots of King driving. The RPM tachometer would fluctuate up and down like normal driving, but the speedometer never went higher than zero to three MPH, clearly a sign that the actor was accelerating the gas pedal (while in neutral), but the car was being pulled or pushed for the interior shots.

Incredible Movie it hits you in that heart
14 January 2019 | by alifesavermeSee all my reviews

Hi if you are saying this movie is bad first of all, screw you. This movie shows police brutality and it's not just a plot. it's more it's about police brutality and how SOME police can be brutal. Yes not all police are bad but still some shoot and kill innocent people
