Better take a nap than waste your time on this movie
22 July 2011 | by garyvh-1See all my reviews

I agree with the previous review who asked if we were watching the same movie. I kept waiting to witness the vigilante portion of the movie and must have yawned and missed it.

Outside of the final 10 minutes of the movie, you can go outside and do something more useful.

My guess is that the movie was supposed to show sympathy for those crossing the border illegally to enter the country but I never felt any sympathy.

The acting was acceptable but the storyline was anything but interesting. In case you missed my review... don't bother!
