Excellent Movie. I enjoyed the end. Very symbolic because we know who Daddy Yankee is and where he is now, and it showed where he came from. It was a very strong film. I wanted to see more, and know more about his personal life. I'm glad he made this film for us to see. I felt very sorry for his family and his loss, if it is all based on a true story. I found it very upsetting and was routing for Daddy Yankee to get his revenge. I really felt that. It's an emotional story, and it left me admiring him more as an artist. I'm glad he made this film because he is one of the first(and one of the best) Reggaeton stars, and the music would not be the same without him. I'm glad he got out of that lifestyle and brought his talent to light for the world to see because even after all these years, although it hasn't been that long, he is still holding it down. His musical style, beats, and rap represent the lifestyle and you feel that it is coming from deep within his heart and soul that makes him an original that cannot be duplicated.
