This movie was written to reach a much wider crowd than anticipated
This movie was obviously well thought over I suppose only a few will ever realize this. The script was written in International English manner, I believe that it could be entirely understood not only by Americans but also by people all over the world as I am not only referring to the 'border run' scenario. Personally the movie took me through a roller-coaster ride full of mixed emotions and some unexpected turns. The whole time I was watching 'Border run' I had to remind myself that it is only a movie The real reality was that in fact it was not fiction. I believe it would be hard for anyone with a soul to realize that these extreme matters of abuse, racism, corruption, government injustice and inhuman acts are the reality we live in right now. There is a certain part of the movie where Sharon quotes "We live with things we take advantage of everyday where people with nothing need to try and live" It has been heard a thousand times, "YES indeed" However after watching this it is as if the whole cliché suddenly takes on a whole new meaning, as if it is the first time you actually heard it and clearly understood the emotion behind it. I do not think it was the intention of the Producers, Directors or Actors to create a piece of art-work, but rather to reflect reality as best as they can and may I say so myself they did accomplish that 100%. A movie like this should not get a 5 star rating or have any intentions to be a hit at the box office neither does a movie like this even have to be recognized at the Academy. The point is; a few selfless people came together to send a message to the world, maybe to take of the blindfolds off some of the self-righteous egotistic people who might still have a soul to realize what is going on. The movie did inspired me and I hope that the next time you look at your children you remember a pregnant woman and her baby being raped tortured and drugged to death at that very moment. I hope that when you go to your local supermarket that you realize at that very moment a person is so desperate for just a slice of bread that they are willing to sacrifice their life for it. Next time when you think of any of your family members, I hope you realize somewhere in the world a person has permanently been removed from their loved ones not only by death. Almost everywhere in the world people are being treated unfairly due to a corrupt justice system that only benefit the rich. Mostly I hope you realize this person crying out for salvation and help could be you! Look beyond the obvious and try and see if you can see how the movie raises the following? Everywhere in the world the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer? People don't have any remorse towards one another? We care only for ourselves and our own reality, we will do anything to avoid a person in need? We treat our own beastly and kill and those who don't sit and watch without saying or doing anything? I know this sounds profound but please bear with me as I truly honestly believe it is the truth Government Officials and Authorities are brain-washing, manipulating the minimum wage state trooper/police officials into believing that it is actually fine to murder, rape and abuse other people. All this only because these people I am referring to are in desperate need for help from another human being. Some of us can still see beyond this But what some may find it very hard to look beyond is when your own parents are so corrupt that they teach their kids that what the so called law says is what you must do even if you have to kill, abuse or do a hate crime against someone else. Remember this guys as humans we none of us were born with the ability to hate, we were taught to hate, if were taught to hate we can be taught to love and care for each other.
