Storyline

In life, there's silver, and there's lead, says Rikki Ortega, as he moves to be king of the street in "Ánglio," L.A.'s east side. Older brothers and a brother-in-law are in his way. While they think they are driving out the Rojas, a local gang that runs the meth trade for bosses in Cabo San Lucas, Rikki is running an elaborate double-cross on his own family. He's not happy just to run this fratricidal con, he also wants to cash in as much as he can of one hundred kilos of crystal meth that he stole from the Rojas (and the Mexicans), seduce the girlfriend of one of his victims, and stay ahead of a cop who was a childhood friend. Will he end up with the silver? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Two actors who played brothers "Eduardo & Jorge Ortega" on screen, ironically have the same last name in real life but are not brothers in real: Timothy Paul Perez (Eduardo Ortega) and Manny Perez (Jorge Ortega). See more »

Goofs

Jon Seda's character of 'Rikki' has a scar across his face making it look like he was knifed at some point and it caught his eye also . So he has one brown eye and one blue eye. So in some scenes he has the brown/blue eye thing going on and in other scenes, it's quite obvious he has both eyes brown. See more »

I liked it alot
12 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw it under the title "Street King" and thought it was really inventive to have one of Shakespeare's more violent plays, Richard III, translated to hispanic urban gang war, drug trade and street politics. Jon Seda is incredibly good as the evil Rikki Ortega who kills his brothers and rivals to gain power. The movies flows and it really captured my attention. Mario Lopez doing a turn as Rikki's childhood friend who grows up to be 5-O and turf rival was even more interesting and cast against type for Lopez. Good job.
