Lavoe biopic has no narrative
30 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best musical partnership since Lennon and McCartney -- i.e, Héctor Lavoe and Willie Colón- has yet to find a film that does them justice. "Lavoe, The Untold Story" is filled with narrative gaps and melodramatic clichés. The script has plenty of anecdotes from salsa singer Lavoe but there is no narrative link. The film fails in replicating the golden age of Fania records and the great songs by Lavoe and Colon end up as background noise for bad taste and bad acting. Raul Carbonell plays Lavoe with a melodramatic effort, lip syncing Lavoe songs, but his performance is closer to parody. This is a film to avoid.
