Awesome! Intelligent and entertaining.
6 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Entertaining and intelligent story behind this Latino legend.

Great film-making also! I definitely recommend this film.

It stayed clear of silly stereotypes.

The story was interesting.

The directing and acting was great.

Looks like a big budget film, even though it wasn't a Hollywood film.

It jumps into interesting cultural issues.

And the director and writers isn't afraid to bringing up societal taboos. A must see.

I grew up with the legend.

It scared me then.

This movie also scares me.
