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!!

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.

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!

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

I was tempted to go with 4 stars, due to profanity and the opening scenes, I shut it off. Then I watched it again and so glad I did, as I watched it another 2 times the same day. I love & miss the late Michael Clark Duncan, (Bear in Armaggedon) who was so great in that role. First I am not racist! I am white and retired, but grew up in the Midwest. My neighbors, best friends and dance partners were black, as well as our Prom Queen. My first taste of rasism was on vacation to FL in 1969. Where I got in trouble because I served the maid lunch! One of the nicest people I ever met. I went there for 10 days and left less than two days later, because of what I saw and was told I cannot do! This movie has every race and you will fall in love with most all of them, as you follow their lives.
I can take a few curse words, save for one, GD, but it actually fit this movie. These young men get a second chance at the Hive or jail time. The teachers were mixed, most new and scared to death. You actually see them grow as well as these troubled young men and they way they live, gangs, home life or lack there of.

Loretta, (I love) and always great, (up for a NCAAP award she better win) as she was over the top in this movie! Nobody could have done it better. Casting couldn't have been better. Vivica Fox was almost unrecognizable, but great too. Jonathan McDaniel, (I believe was his debue film) is destined to be seen a lot more. You are in for a real experience, emotional, furious and deeply inspiring trip, that's very thought provoking. In the end you will be standing and cheering for this movie. We should certainly be demanding more places like the Hive and want every young person out there to have such a second chance! Not to mention the staff of people that work there.

Buy or rent this movie and I assure you, it can be life changing. Did you guess? I loved this movie!

I really enjoyed this movie. It is about a troubled young man who is accepted into an inovative program called "The Hive". It details how the program changed his life despite family and gang affiliations trying to keep him from improving his life. In the program he meets people who see his potential both staff members and fellow students. Their encouragement helps him to see himself in a different light. I love how this movie exposes the pitfalls people have when they are trying to improve their lives but also shows that things are not always hopeless.
