Critic Reviews of "Juice"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Dickerson and co-writer Gerard Brown exhibit a sharp ear for dialog and have some real finds in their largely unknown cast...Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Stylishly shot, it works well as a thriller; the result is energetic and entertaining, without the feeling of difficult truths being forgotten.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
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.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
I'm sure Dickerson has strong feelings about inner-city problems, but if he does he can't convey them.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
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.Entertainment WeeklyDecember 31, 1799
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.Combustible CelluloidMarch 27, 2009
An above-average story of four "boys in the hood."Film ThreatMay 06, 2005
Commanding performances mesh with solid storytellingApollo GuideFebruary 13, 2001
A Hitchcockian moment in an elevator is perhaps the film's signature set piece.Deseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
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.Austin ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Dickerson's story of street kids at risk breaks no new ground. It is better than most, but not by much. Sure looks good, though.
