Bad all-round, not worth the time to see.
22 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Seems they used most of their budget (what little they had) on recordings of firecrackers.

The acting was horrible, the sounds were bad, and the story.. was stupid(based on a true story sure, but that's just it, based, somewhere some Mexican guy was a gangster and tried to go clean, but the rest of the junk in this film...) Was of your time, unless u can see it for free and have the time to waste.

There are much better, true stories of crime, and similar stories to this one, the time you would spend watching this can be spent finding a better film.
