Good film. Could've been better.
29 May 2018 | by suhstaynSee all my reviews

Good film but could've been better.

Too many camera close ups on people's faces. It was constantly happening in scenes and taking you out of situation/moment & away from the tension of the situation.

I enjoyed the lowrider cars. That was something different. Something unusual in films. All the cool cars and the great designs.

The cast was great as well. Demian Bechir. Theo Rossi. Melissa Benoist. Eva Longoria. The main character / actor was a bit weaker than the rest of the cast but he was not too bad.

The plot / story / family drama was solid but nothing we haven't seen before.

Overall, a bit more to the story and better camera angles / shots would've made this a much better movie. Even so, a solid movie.
