Good film
24 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mexican Sunrise immediately grabs you from the very beginning with the intense scene of someone being buried alive. You don't know who it is or how they got there, but you are definitely intrigued from the start. With the use of flashbacks the director does a great job developing characters and relationships between the five friends. You get a really good sense of who these guys are and you almost feel like you know them or someone like them in your own life. The flash forwards throughout the movie keeps the intense feeling that something bad is coming. It's keeps the audience intrigued with anticipation as the story unfolds. I was fortunate enough to see this film at Houston's Worldfest Film Festival. I hope many of you will get a chance to see this in theaters soon.
