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.

Want to See From Mexico With Love in the BIG SCREEN
26 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Earlier this week, I had an opportunity to watch the unreleased version of From Mexico With Love. .. .and yes, I LOVED IT !!! It had a story to tell, emotions to be felt, and most of all, a way of thinking about life and the way we treat others, to walk away with. It's more than a exciting boxing movie, it's more than a love story, it's more than about immigration reform ... IT's all of the above! I can't wait to see this movie on the BIG SCREEN!! It is a GRAMMY hit !!!! I know both Mexico and American audience will love this movie. Anyone who has immigrated from one country to another will understand the meaning behind the story in the movie. And anyone who has a heart, will have a bigger heart, after watching this movie. What more can I say, but it will be part of my movie collection.
