This movie isn't for everyone. It isn't for people who are vehemently anti-violence. It isn't for people who need a feel-good story with a happy ending. That being said, this film had me literally on the edge of my seat for 2 1/2 hours and is a fantastic movie.
People will want to compare this movie to other immigration films. This has dramatizations and has a coherent direction, while still being an incredibly suspenseful movie. I think the director did a great job.
I wish they developed the secondary characters more, because I liked them so much. But it's not your typical Hollywood movie that introduces a protagonist and develops him/her until the conflict is resolved. This movie used the main character as a metaphor for America as a whole and that was really impressive.
Much more than your average action movie, "Border Run" has a combination of bad ass scenes, phenomenal editing, and music, and a fantastic (mostly) true story with epic scope. I can't wait to see it again!
