A Mexican prisoner escapes through the jungles of Chiapas crossing paths with a secret agent Lobo (David Carradine). Lobo has a crisis in his hands, and only Julio, the ex-con, can help based on his past spy experience. Lobo gives Julio money, cars and everything else he needs to travel the world and rescue the very beautiful Ambassador's daughter who has been taken by the ETA terrorist group. Lobo changes Julio's life and even his name to FUEGO (Damian Chapa), which means "fire". And that is exactly what Fuego does. He sets the world on fire as he takes out anyone in the way of getting what he needs to erase his criminal past. Written by
Damian Chapa and Jimmy Gonzales
Fuego from actor/writer/director/producer Damian Chapa is a top notch action movie made outside of Hollywood. Chapa plays ex-con Fuego who tries to make up for his past sins by rescuing the sexy daughter of an Ambassador. I'm a huge fan of Steven Seagal and this reminded of that type of movie.
It was great to see David Carradine from Kung Fu fame as Lobo. Nina Epifanova playing the Ambassador daughter is Feugo herself. There is tons of action in this movie to keep viewers interested. I was impressed with the directing and camera work. Great job Mr. Chapa. This is not a date movie or one you watch the wife. This is like UFC or Spike TV. A total guy movie that has punch. Stay away from Chicano Blood and watch Fuego!
