Murder on the Border
4 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie and am still affected by the dishonesty and corruption that flood our authorities. Simple folks just trying to reach for something better are treated like a subclass. It was very realistic on how lawyers try to manipulate the courts and the families that are affected by this injustice. Keith Allen and Alpha were good in their roles as defenders of the the helpless. I enjoyed the scenery which help to give the movie it's authenticity. I am a regular at the video stores and it is nice to be able to pick up a little known gem and find it interesting and enjoyable.Some of the other movies that I have seen with a Latin flavor are Carlita's Secret, and Murder at El Meneo.Both films are action films and I would recommend them for rental.
