Storyline

Hector, a young Mexican national and border-crossing migrant farm laborer, has boxing abilities just like his late father had. He could perhaps be good if he learned to think along with his pummeling, then he could do better for his ailing mother than pull in a few side dollars from small-time, illegal gambling fights. Getting on the bad side of racist Texas farmer Big Al and his cocky, pugilist son Robert, puts Hector in touch with an alcoholic trainer named Billy who, nevertheless, can teach him to be better. It all comes down to an arranged, high-stakes match between Hector and the 20-pounds more muscular Robert in which Hector's only hope is to demonstrate he can keep his head in the game.

A must see heart-warming movie!
24 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was recently invited to a sneak preview of "From Mexico With Love", produced by Cinamour Entertainment, directed by Jimmy Nickerson. I was pleasantly surprised by a touching story of Latin immigrants and their struggle to survive. I felt Hector, portrayed by Kuno Becker, played a convincing role of a young man determined to make a difference for his people. The magic of Bruce McGill is evident in his performance of Billy, the trainer. There were some humorous scenes, where his style came through and showcased some of his musical ability. The cinematography was awesome, and the special effects brought it all together.

A must see heart-warming movie!
