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 »

Not for The faint of heart
23 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The start of this film captures the true lost and distant emotion of a man who lived his life incarcerated, which is often overlooked in gangster movies. But The boys of ghost town definitely wont hold back on the shock and suspense that is expected of a classic action flick. Leading man Manuel Garcia's performance as 'Danny" was emotional and sincere. Marian Zapico filled her lead role as "Natalie" with the perfect essence of a broken woman, The lights seem green for the strong talent, its safe to expect great things from her. chemistry between the cast is undeniable, it seemed like true friends woke up one day and decided to make a good looking film. Director Pablo Veliz is further defining himself as someone to be taken very seriously in the film-making community, with names like Danny Trejo notorious bad guy behind his back one can only wonder where the path he has chosen will take him next. The Boys of Ghost town is another interesting look on where desperation can take a man ((or woman)) if I had to sum it up in one word it would be intense. With that said this movie is not for the faint of heart, so send the kids to their room kids bring your tissues plenty of popcorn or whatever your poison and strap in for The Boys Of Ghost Town.
