"Set It Off" This movie is controversial for many reasons. The attention of the media and many parents who were concerned about the message it would send to younger society. They did not want their children being influenced to rob a bank. However, for others it was a realistic way to express what many people living in poverty felt or at least considered from time to time. You see, it was viewed by them as a way of survival. After being oppressed for so long many understood that this way the only option left. This movie was indeed very symbolic.
