Boring af
20 November 2015 | by chemorSee all my reviews

This movie was terrible. Plain and simple. Yeah it had a plot, but there was no real build up, suspense, or sense of satisfaction once everything was figured out. It just followed the lives of these two dudes as they meander through every stereotypical activity you can think of when you think gang life. And Primo lives what has to be the WORST existence any gangbanger has ever had. Then everything that has anything to do with a story seems to be crammed in as an afterthought. Like "Oh yeah guys, we got this mystery to solve and um... 5 minutes left. GO!"

Still a better love story than Twilight though.
