The newspaper 'La Zona Vida' of 17 August 1992, has a page one headline shouting, "Lugarteniente Enrique Villas - el asesino de San Remus?" The question mark is a bit rhetoric, as the voice off narration explains that the authorities of El Salvador presumes the young officer is the leader of 'La Mala Sombra', the right-wing death squad operating in the country. He escapes from custody, crosses Mexico, and enters the frontier city of Nogales, between Mexico and the United States.

Not as cut-and-dried as it looks
7 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

The presumed leader of a right-wing death squad operating in El Salvador escapes from custody and enters the United States. An international bounty is issued, and Reno Raines gets on the case. By following his girlfriend he is able to catch him rather quickly, but the case is far from over: they both find themselves pursued by unknown men, and Reno soon realizes that his target may not be the "butcher" that the media present him as. And that is the most interesting part of this episode: Reno meeting another character who's a former police officer, who discovered corruption, who got framed for crimes he didn't commit and who is trying to find a way to clear his name. He is almost Reno's mirror image. Playing the girlfriend, Gina Gallego brings some honest emotion in her couple of scenes. And there is a fair car chase, too. (**1/2)
