The Bronx War
10 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story is about an owner of a Bronx night club/stripper bar that is also the head of a Puerto Rican street gang that deals in drugs. He gets into hot water with a rival black gang when they accuse a woman he knows of stealing money from them.

The production value is low but the story and scenery has a certain grittiness to it. Also the acting might not be from well-known movie stars but I still found it enjoyable. You don't see too many movies with stories about Puerto Rican gangs from New York. Of course I realize this movie isn't for everyone, but for me it's a little hidden gem.
