Two years old, and not one comment.
8 May 2014 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

I get the sneaking suspicion that either no one has seen this movie, or someone has and thinks that it's too worthless to comment on. Of course, the idea of positing that illegal aliens can save the day for our hero by showing him "how to make it in America" is a questionable plot device at best when the USA is coming apart at the seams over the problem of how to deal with illegals. The only reason I can see that this got made in the first place is because it is a Canadian/United States co-production and Canada is notable for its laxness concerning immigration. It's almost as if this is some sort of propaganda piece intended to create a favorable view of illegals. "Almost" hell. More like "is."

I haven't seen this myself, but I doubt I will.
