Could anyone possibly make a worse movie about the murders in Juarez
4 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a bad movie I have never reviewed a movie on IMDb before but this movie is awful. The acting is terrible and the characters are one dimensional. The plot is awful, it is an overdramatization of a terrible situation that is only trivialized by this movie. I would suggest you read a one page article on these murders because it will save your time and give you a better feeling for what is really happening. Any documentary by a five year old would have done a better job of educating and almost any other movie is produced with more thought.

pass on this movie. I wish I could have my time back.
