Solid film, great performances and cool glimpse into Lowrider world.
13 May 2017 | by fourth_worldSee all my reviews

This film is definitely worth watching. The story itself is not groundbreaking but the performances are solid. Watching Demian Bichir and Theo Rossi face off is worth the price of admission. Eva as the mom is a bad ass bitch and Gabriel as Danny holds his own.

One of the best things about the film is the glimpse we get into East LA and the Lowrider culture. It's a rich world visually and culturally. It's nice to see this world depicted in the movie theaters.

It's a strong family drama with strong acting and some powerful performances with some amazing works of art on wheels.
