In the streets of East Los Angeles, Manny is a formidable drug dealer. Impressed by his extravagant lifestyle and prowess, his young son, Kilo, yearns to follow in his footsteps. Kilo resolves to learn how to prosper in the drug world, and his new life as a dealer begins. Starting off small, dealing to the high school and college market, Kilo discovers the drug business to be very profitable. With a little help from the well-connected and seductive daughter of a Colombian gangster, he becomes a drug kingpin with a nationwide monopoly on drug running. While conquering the drug world, Kilo falls in love with a local Latina who quickly becomes pregnant. Shortly thereafter, Kilo is involved in a drug deal with a wired frat boy that goes bad, and he is imprisoned. His exciting and stylish life as a drug lord seems to have come to a halt. But prison life does not stop Kilo from running his operation. He enlists the support of other prisoners including Crips, Bloods, and a very powerful ... Written by Jim Dobson <starpr@aol.com>

Very Wonderful Entertaining Gangster Flick!
5 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Finally a gangster Movie worth watching!

Jennifer Tily should get nominated for her role as tough murdering femme fatal!

This Movie flies like a bird , just a fast paced non stop Gangster Mayhem!

Jennifer Tily is just so beautiful and bad in this Movie.

I was shocked to find Faye Dunaway still lives! The cast in this movie are so fitted to their roles.

A real cool soundtrack rides along side and you get swept into the Spanish soul of this film.

The story is original deep and poetic.

This Flick has a lot of Substance and never rests.

The gang of Spanish Fire just set everything on screen alight.

Damian Chapa Is a Joy to watch and a Movie Star.

Sit back and enjoy the ride.
