Mistaken identity? Still fun..., 24 September 2010
Author: bmbrady5 from United States

New to IMDb, this film caught my attention, surprisingly. My wife and I happened to see this in a Boston film festival back in April. Cool cast, we love "that Mexican guy", who I know now as Machete. I had to say we really had a fun time with it. We stayed for the q&a with the film's leading lady, who was very nice and pretty and the director. Big surprise was the films' budget, which was nothing, and the other cool ways on how it got made. Nonetheless, people will mistake SHOOT THE HERO as an action film like the Losers or something, but we know it as an independent film that was funny too. Good time...oh and Jay and Silent Bob actor, Jason, was really great.
