Examples include Fishburne (who gives what is easily the best performance in the film) occasionally stopping the film dead to deliver Singleton's messages, whether it's snarking at a black police officer that racially profiles other black citizens or the part where he waxes lyrical about the gentrification of black neighbourhoods.

A brilliant and emotional story that is brilliant for Singletons first ever film as a director, perhaps one of the most underrated films I have seen as I have rarely seen any others talk about it yet there arent many films that are as mature and emotionally powerful as it in recent years.
When Tre gets there you meet his friends Doughboy (Baha Jackson - Ice Cube) and his brother Ricky (Donavan McCrarey - Morris Chesnut) - they take a walk through the neighborhood and eventually run into some big guys who take Ricky's ball.
