Goofs

Several of the shooters hold their pistols sideways while firing. This is strictly a Hollywood gimmick; it is not done in real life because of the possibility of the gun jamming and the shot missing its target. See more »

Intense movie!
23 April 2009 | by Manny_GarciaSee all my reviews

The movie is a cross between Romeo and Juliet and Scarface! I recommend you watch the movie with a date.. There is something in it for everyone (everyone except young children).. Great cinematography... Wonderfully scored.. the music pulls you into the movie.. A very intense movie in some parts.. The tension and energy continues to builds until the very end.. The movie leaves you wanting more... The great thing is that this is a prequel to "7 Kilos" yet I believe there is still room for another movie since you really "Can't Kill a Dead Man"... It'd be nice to see where the story of the Danny Ortega character goes before "7 Kilos"... Great movie though and Danny Trejo performed to his finest and stills holds the record as Hollywoods favorite Bad Guy...
