A defining film of a generation, a movie that brought to the mainstream, the real issues of street violence… No excuses just frank observations. The film focuses on few days in the violent life of Caine (Tyrin Turner). Freshly graduate from high school, and looking to leave his violent existence, and that of his peers, in the brutal streets of the projects of Watts. Sometimes, entering is easy; It’s the exit that matters. And in this case the exit, might mean something very sinister.

Every period a movie comes and shakes the established ideas, from their core, Menace is one of them. A riveting watch, Franck and without artifice… As the tagline proudly presents it “This is the truth. This is what's real.”
