Berrego bomb
29 January 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is the film that Jesse Borrego wants no one to see! After pulling off great performances in films like Follow Me Home (1996) and Bound by Honor (1993) this was a mistake! I am a fan of low budget filmmaking but there is no film here. It seems like they go there homies together and made it up as they went. I give them some props for trying and talking Jesse Borrego into doing it.
