I look forward to seeing a feature length film on the subject.

'LOS NINOS SICARIOS': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A 10-minute crime-drama short film, written and directed by Rob Lambert. It tells the story of a teenage hit-man, that's given an assignment to assassinate a high profile target. The boy experiences a lot of trauma from the experience, as well as from his past training (when he was even much younger). The movie is inspired by real events, and it informs the viewer how American teenage boys (usually Mexican-American) are recruited by major Mexican drug cartels all of the time (along the southwestern border states), as young as 12- years of age. They're given 9-months of intense training; and then sent to live in sleeper cells, in American suburbs. They're then assigned targets in the U.S., and Mexico, and their pay ranges from $10,000 to $50,000 (for each assignment). The short does a great job of educating the viewer about all of this. It's also extremely graphic, in a seemingly realistic way; I had a hard time watching it. The short is a great 'day in the life' type story; but at just 10-minutes, it leaves a lot unexplained still. I look forward to seeing a feature length film on the subject (hopefully from the same filmmaker).
