Storyline

In life, there's silver, and there's lead, says Rikki Ortega, as he moves to be king of the street in "Ánglio," L.A.'s east side. Older brothers and a brother-in-law are in his way. While they think they are driving out the Rojas, a local gang that runs the meth trade for bosses in Cabo San Lucas, Rikki is running an elaborate double-cross on his own family. He's not happy just to run this fratricidal con, he also wants to cash in as much as he can of one hundred kilos of crystal meth that he stole from the Rojas (and the Mexicans), seduce the girlfriend of one of his victims, and stay ahead of a cop who was a childhood friend. Will he end up with the silver? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Jon Seda's character of 'Rikki' has a scar across his face making it look like he was knifed at some point and it caught his eye also . So he has one brown eye and one blue eye. So in some scenes he has the brown/blue eye thing going on and in other scenes, it's quite obvious he has both eyes brown. See more »

Stupid
14 January 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Street King" sticks Seda out front as a Mexican gang member who climbs the ladder of success in the streets of East L.A. by finding creative ways to "off" his competition. Seda explains his stratagem and gang politics by talking to the camera throughout the film thereby providing constant reminders we're watching a MOVIE (duh)! The film offers okay art and technicals but fails on story, breaching reality in every frame as it withers and finally dies a slow death of purposeless mediocrity. Pass on this sophomoric story and waste of talent. (D+)
