A Hitchcockian moment in an elevator is perhaps the film's signature set piece.

I'm sure Dickerson has strong feelings about inner-city problems, but if he does he can't convey them.

Poised halfway between the action conventions of New Jack City and the personal grit of Straight Out of Brooklyn, Juice doesn't have the pizzaz or the insight, to satisfy as either exploitation or art.

The movie generates a real tension in its closing passages, as it shows its characters trapped in a plot that seems to be unfolding according to its own merciless logic.

Despite the script's reliance on familiar cliches, the film never feels like an exploitation thriller, as we genuinely feel for these kids and the life they've fallen into.

Mr. Dickerson, whose cinematography has been the reason Spike Lee's films look so good, has a terrific eye and some juice of his own.

Coming out from behind Spike Lee's camera, Ernest Dickerson has instantly arrived at the forefront of the new wave of black directors. His film aims for the gut, and hits it.

Stylishly shot, it works well as a thriller; the result is energetic and entertaining, without the feeling of difficult truths being forgotten.
