Completely disappointed
11 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I disagree w. the previous reviewer. As a Chicano, I really wanted to like this movie. However, there was little about this movie that I enjoy, maybe the music but this is not enough to warrant seeing this film. First off, the actor playing the lead was miscast, he was way too old to play this role. The acting was poor especially by Jesse's childhood friend. I don't think I've ever seen Danny Trejo in a worse movie. The only positive aspect of the movie was Lil Bit's character, at least she was believable. I saw this movie at the Laemmele in Encino, Ca. I was the only one in the theater! It played there 1-2 weeks and is no longer showing there. I really wish I could recommend this movie but I just can't. If you want to see an excellent independent movie, see "Miss Bala" before it disappears from the theaters.
