Did You Know?

Goofs

During the shootouts, none of the pistols or assault rifles eject any empty cartridge cases when they are fired. This indicates that they are probably airsoft model guns equipped with sound and muzzle flash devices. See more »

Must see movie
23 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is great, it has it all, action, romance, comedy, ACTION all done in with great acting and most of all with a really good story line. I really recommend watching this movie. The movie is shot in San Antonio and Houston and takes advantage of the the beautiful sceneries and skylines of those cities. Cinematography, done by Eugenio Cañas is excellent. The special effects are awesome, these were done by AJ Garces as well as some of the make-up. The movie is based on true accounts of people, "friends" that we all have that were willing to share their experiences with the writer of how the drug world really is. The movie is fast paced where it needs to be and diligently slow at others. One thing that is different in this movie from the others that Pablo has done is the musical score. Douglas Edward really brought the movie together and gave it the feel of a high budget movie, very professional. As usual Danny Trejo is up to his usual antics as the "bad boy" and doesn't disappoint his fans. Keep an eye out for the Lead actors Manuel Garcia and Marian Zapico I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them soon.
