User Reviews

A Very Entertaining film, based on Juvenile Delinquency.
10 October 2004 | by (Gibraltar) – See all my reviews

The Quinqui genre in Spain is similar to the Blaxplotaition films from the 70's in America. 'Navajeros' is one of the best Quinqui movies together with 'Perros Callejeros'. The fans of Blaxplotaition will like this film and others from this genre that no longer lives.

Meet 'El Jaro' one of Madrid's most famous juvenile delinquents. Alone in the streets ever since he was 10 years old, he teams up with other kids his age and together they raise hell. They steal cars, commit armed robberies and confront the local drug-dealers.

A very entertaining film packed with spectacular realistic action, sex, drugs and a smashing sound-track.
