Worst Action Film i Ever Seen since Ballistic!
1 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

I can't even think how Daddy Yankee can do a movie, the movie have the worst performances in the Spanish-language cinema history, Gangs...thats something new?....The movie its a copy of classic gangs films like "Blood in, Blood Out", "8 Mile", "Get Rich or Dye Trying" and "American Me". Daddy Yankee only wants to make a film because he are lowing down, he pass away, i will remember him for doing this awful piece of crap. I simply don't want to see nothing like this again, i prefer to watch Battlefield on Earth and listening Justin Bieber new album for the rest of my life. This movie its nothing and its a shame. Latin-Americans are the bad guys in this films.. All Latinamericans have guns and are Criminals?...this movie need something...and that is a message that the other Gang movies have. Blood In, Blood Out and American Me shows us that Gangs are the way of Evil...oh i forget MI FAMILIA, the Chucho parts pff, that film really make us understand the danger of bad companies. This movie its nothing for me.
