Goofs

Several of the shooters hold their pistols sideways while firing. This is strictly a Hollywood gimmick; it is not done in real life because of the possibility of the gun jamming and the shot missing its target. See more »

Boys of Ghostown
23 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Boys of Ghostown starts off with the young Danny Ortega getting out of prison. It is the reality of one who tries to do better on the outside but society rejects him. As with all people, he happens to have a great friend, Corando, who hooks him up with a job. His true love happens to still be around and they wind up falling for each other. The evils of the world coming knocking, as Corando's client wants a hook up with some drugs. Danny is compelled to make a few dollars and gets involved. There was many good moments in the film. I was fortunate to be a cast member in this film. Having Danny Trejo be a part of it was very special. I think it was directed very well. Pablo is a great Director and I hope to work with again in the future.
