Box cover tip off to F grade movie
20 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like to give Non-Hollywood movies a chance. I kinda know what I'll get from B grade movie. I've read enough reviews on IMDb that are laced with venom from people. If you buy a KIA you can't expect it to ride like a Rolls Royce. I give these type of movies the benefit of the doubt knowing whoever made them didn't have millions of dollars.

Let me climb down from my soap box. With that said Chicano Blood falls way short of being a decent B grade gangster movie. I have to put it on the D list. The box cover was awful looking bordering on plain silly. The movie wasn't any better or at least 20 minutes I did watch before turning it off. I gave Chicano Blood a 3 instead of a 1 because of actor/director/ writer/producer Damian Chapa. I admire he is trying to make movies on his terms outside of Hollywood. His other movie Fuego showcases his talents much better than this POS.

I do need to comment that when a movie like Chicano Blood has nothing to offer viewers why not put in outrageous nudity? Cinemax is home to all kinds of movies that are lousy but they do have nudity to keep a little interest. Don't waste your time on this movie.
