Good acting by Jorge Luke in slow paced drama
10 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This motion picture was recently shown on broadcast TV and as it was slow moving to begin with, the commercials didn't help. It did have a powerful finish, though. It's hard to say the exact time period the movie depicts, perhaps the early 1900's. No cars are seen, there is a Victrola and an early model phone, however. The plot revolves around prejudice against the Mexican and their equal rights. Jorge Luke is the star, and as many of his films(in which he is the hero or villain)are action oriented it is nice to see him here in a drama. To help the cause, financially speaking, he agrees to enter the boxing ring for a crack at the Welter weight championship. The agreement he insists upon is winner take all. The boxing match(which takes place at about the last 20 minutes or so) is pretty realistic, and if you are a boxing fan, it's almost worth watching just for that. The acting is good throughout, there are subtitles for the Caucasians speaking English, and the film's color could be better. Some mild profanity and blood letting.
