Three young vigilantes huddle on la linea ready to chase illegals back across the border into Mexico... but they soon learn that there are borderlines deep within each one of them that each of them has to cross.
Hoping for some quick cash, the buddy triumvirate of David (Benjamin Walker), George (Brian J. Smith), and Greg (Victor Rasuk), self named The War Boys, steal a tractor trailer owned by David's father (Peter Gallagher). The boys believe the trailer contains televisions, but as things go sour, the boys figure out that the cargo is more dangerous than just stolen televisions.Written by

Trouble at the borders
It's hard to believe there aren't tons of reviews for this film! It handles numerous "taboo" subjects with aplomb, and gives the viewer a whole lot to think about.
The three youthful leads give outstanding performances all around, Peter Gallagher does a fine job in support, and Teresa Yengue ices the cake to perfection. Many other fine performances here, don't get me wrong.
Try on a "thinking" movie for a change. I think you'll find this most rewarding. Not sure whether this is out on video yet, but please don't give it a pass when it comes your way.
