A little bit of everything... and nothing
25 January 2013 | by rui-li2010See all my reviews

This film has involved a few topics that intrigued me: border illegal immigration, struggle of 1st generation immigrants (Greg & Marta), law enforcement racial profiling (Greg), gay coming of age (David and George), adoption family (George), etc.

The story had a terrific beginning and background set up. But then there are so many signals and story lines that audience are watching a diary, a soap opera rather than a film. The plot of the film was so loose. The real issue or truck mystery keeps getting ignored until the last 15 minutes. It lacked the build-up of tensions and the opening of that trailer was just unprepared. Marta walked into that trailer full of what was unexpected (I don't know why she did, while the boys were doing nothing there). The camera work and cosmetics for that trailer scene was very very poor that it could not bring any emotion out of audience. I am so very disappointed.

I still give the film 6 out of 10 because I think the boys were good looking and good actors. They could've done so more with those intimate scenes. For god sake, tell one story well - not 10 stories poorly.
