Critic Reviews for Poetic Justice
John Singleton's follow-up to his stunning debut, Boys N the Hood, is a major disappointment--a sophomore jinx.
The two leads are raw but completely intriguing, and Poetic Justice offers a slice of the urban story that we generally don't get to see.
Audience Reviews for Poetic Justice
I had recorded this on dvr to watch. The times were out, so I missed the last 15 minutes. I wasn't overly disappointed about it. Is okay, but not my type of thing.
an engaging movie with a messed up ending. one forgets how good shakur was as an actor until you realize that he was a huge chunk of the good films of this genre in the early 90's.
Not one of Singleton's best, but the story was ok. The actors/singers placed to play the lead characters were a bit annoying, but Regina King was the best whom always get's into her role, and stole the show from the two main characters. Mayo Angelou's poems are great, which is quoted by Janet Jackson in this ok movie. I liked it and it was amusing, but they just did not bring out the roles as they should have.
