Based on 20 Critics
  • If Singleton, 25, stumbles, it is over ambition and not the complacency of a new Hollywood hotshot riding a trend. show more

  • Poetic Justice is not ["Boyz N the Hood's"] equal, but does not aspire to be; it is a softer, gentler film, more of a romance than a commentary on social conditions. show more

  • It's safe, and it's smart, and even though it's lightweight compared to "Boyz" and bound to disappoint a lot of Singleton's admirers, Justice demonstrates that Singleton is more than a one-shot wonder. [23 Jul 1993]
