Quotes

Javier Salazar: The Americans,they are very smart,but sometimes they can be incredibly stupid.They spend all this money,time and energy on so called war on terror.They put satellites up in space.They can ram a smart-bomb up a camel's ass... from a situation 5 thousand miles away.and every time the U.S kills an Al Qaeda leader,what happens? There's a new one before the body is cold.They do it a million times,and never get it... Because the real solution,always eludes them.

1 May 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

It is very difficult to give something new to the audience. Specially when talking about such a controversial topics as Drug dealing, mafia, terrorism, cartels Etc.

Being Mexican myself I looked forward to see how a new director would portray this "not to take lightly" topic. The first impression I got as I began to watch the movie was the serious influence of Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic", a fabulous movie which provides an unusual vision of the drug underworld. As the movie continued it was not difficult to identify some the similarity with some other movies, not only character wise, but also concerning plot, conflict and even cinematography.

Shields' character is a weird mix of Denzel's Creasy in Man on fire and Pierce Brosnan's hit-man in Matador. Both very well structured characters, but when combined do not have the same effect.

It is difficult to be bring something new to Drug dealing movies, particularly because everything has pretty much been said about dealing drugs; so when a director tries to give some extra dramatic flavor, it has a contradictory effect, It is appealing but not very coherent.

Check out this movie it is not completely dismissible, specially if you take into account its independent nature. But do not expect to see anything worth referring to in the future.
