The story centers around veteran assassin Mark Shields as he tracks down, Pelon, the elusive head of the Salazar Crime Cartel. Through twists of fate, Shields ends up with a local woman, Olivia who is also fighting her own demons for the sake of her daughter. Set in the rich and atmospheric backdrop of Tijuana, Mexico, La Linea (The Line) is full of action, drama and finds its soul in the plight of the characters that inhabit the most dangerous city in North America.

Don Wilson was originally cast to star in the role of Ray Liotta. Wilson's role was entirely rewritten for Liotta, eliminating any martial arts content. Wilson cites losing the role as part of the reason for his five year hiatus from filmmaking. See more »
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.

A cast full of cool actors (Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Armand Assante, Danny Trejo and Kevin Gage) does not make a cool movie. La Linea is evidence of that. A movie that starts by quoting a psalm, serves up nothing but genre clichés for 90 minutes (in a plot that is pretty hard to follow) and ends with an incredibly stupid surprise ending which doesn't make any sense at all. And everything is dedicated to the good people of Tijuana of course, where the movie takes place. Poor Tijuanans. The only thing good about La Linea is seeing Danny Trejo back in the role that he has played so many times before with enthusiasm: that of ugly henchman #2.
