Hollywood its not
16 April 2006 | by (Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

first of all this movie is nothing like the book and is definitely not the era of Trujillo. Hollywood is not, they should have given it to Hollywood but they didn't. it looks like it was filmed entirely at night, there's no show of the country because everything looks like it took place at night maybe because of lack of funds or imagination. the acting, well I rather not comment on that, suffice is to say that to me is worth 2 stars. the Spanish version, we have Trujillo speaking Catalan like if he was born in Spain, and so is everyone else for that matter, from the top of the military to the bellhop. I waited for this movie only to he highly disappointed, it sucks big time. thanks god I did not pay a lot of money to see it, then it would have been a really big disappointment. Iam Dominican, and in fact I even got to meet Trujillo once, and I tell you that wasn't him or even a close resemblance. I truly hope that one day, Hollywood would decide to do Trujillo justice and then we will have like a second godfather, full of the violence that existed during the period and true to trill's character.
