This movie should be part of every young man's requirement to entering eight grade or sooner. It's as real as real can get. Michael Clark Duncan, my he rest in the Lord, portrayed the the perfect role model for every young man that doesn't have a positive male figure in his life to guide him. He provokes young men (and women) to thick twice and three times about the choices they make because they really do last a lifetime -- good or bad. The move caught and kept my twenty-one year old's attention and that's hard to do since he thinks he already knows everything he needs to know to get through this life. Great job Robert Townsend and cast!!

One of the best movies I every watch!
Very realistic, informative, thought provoking and motivational. A very real coming to age movie for young men and woman. Bravo, bravo, bravo, bravo.

This film should be shown at High Schools, Youth Centers and Church Groups every where. It is a really great film, to be honest this is the first movie in along while that I have enjoyed from Robert Townsend, this is some of his finest work from this decade.

This movie will have you dying to see the end, and what happens with the main characters, because you will get the sense that these young men are real, that they do exsist and in some ways they do, there are young men for various reasons who join gangs, or take the low road in life. And this movie potrays it perfectly, its not at all cheesy or preachy.

I must warn that the ending is a cliff hanger, so you will feel a little disappointed at the end. I think this would have made a great show, and its one of the last works by Michael Clark Duncan (RIP)

The Hive is an alternative school for young men, who have troubled there way out of the public school system, you will follow the life of one young man, with a history of gang life running deep in his family. And also get a glimpse at 3 other young men who are his classmates.

Most compelling! This is an excellently told & acted movie. Robert Townsen did a great job. I wish the ending was expanded a little more, but this real life fact based story was powerfully told with compassion and my previously viewed copy was in excellent condition as promised.

I just got this movie and watched it its a very touching movie but very good love it. Loretta Devine and Vivica Fox played very well in the movie it just show that there are kids out there like the kids in this movie that need people to care about them and believe in them

Very good movie! My best friend and I thought it would be good for maybe middle schoolers and high schoolers to watch so they can choose a better path. Would have given 5 stars, but I didn't like how it ended. There were so many unanswered questions!
