Horrible
29 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

The writer didn't have enough imagination to make up a fictional character for their fictional Film was the first disappointment. 2nd disappointment the characterization of Pablo was totally inaccurate DEl Torro may be a good actor but his portrayal of Pablo was lacking the energy of the real man. It's like casting John Wayne as the king of England

Why try and confuse fact and fiction together. It only makes people more ignorant of history . and for that the writer should be sued for slander.

and yes there is no way believable some Canadian punk middle / upper class kids would have the balls to go that far. Maybe the boys from "Trailer Park boys" would be more credible.but not the character of Nic.
