Next time get the botella de mezcal
12 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Border Town has several things going for it. Great cinematography, beautiful lighting, solid and natural performances from the 2 leads Mark Joy and Linda Rodriguez, and visual effects that blend nicely into the film giving it an at times dreamlike quality.

It also has several things working against it. Pacing is a little slow, some performances not quite solid, dialog is standard fare, standard action scenes as well (I'm sure due to budget limitations). It's difficult for a film to stand out based purely on technical expertise these days, as there are so many films that are made well visually. Yes, Border Town is a character study of those populating the film, but it also presents itself as an action film. And there is part of the problem as well, because the film hinges on the final action scene which is staged in such a manner that the viewer's disbelief is not suspended for the time it takes to play out. Don't know if I can recommend the film wholeheartedly, but certainly recognize it as a worthy effort from those involved and will keep it in the DVD collection.
