A cast full of cool actors (Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Armand Assante, Danny Trejo and Kevin Gage) does not make a cool movie. La Linea is evidence of that. A movie that starts by quoting a psalm, serves up nothing but genre clichés for 90 minutes (in a plot that is pretty hard to follow) and ends with an incredibly stupid surprise ending which doesn't make any sense at all. And everything is dedicated to the good people of Tijuana of course, where the movie takes place. Poor Tijuanans. The only thing good about La Linea is seeing Danny Trejo back in the role that he has played so many times before with enthusiasm: that of ugly henchman #2.
