A lot better than you'd think
Verified purchase
This is not some dumb banger-sploitation flick. These characters come to life, the society they create becomes familiar, the language, the clothes, the mentality. To a certain degree, it has some hallmarks of a documentary. But, it is a story with an adequately complicated plot, to satisfy your need for theater. Tarot gimmick worked for me, each Tarot card introducing a new character that moved the plot along. It's got cheesy aspects, probably necessarily, but it's also got what it takes to be a worthwhile watch. There are actors you will recognize, and many more that you will not, and probably will never see again, but they do fine journeyman work in this film. LA, South Side is our destination. Temperature is 81*, clear skies.

will you please die for the beautiful woman

The title of this one sends feelings of the mystic but this is not one of those fantasy movies. I like the violence. I like the shooting. There is not alot of shooting but it is very effective. This is about street violence and crime; I like this type of story. The 5.1 surroundsound contributes to the ambience of the story. The recommendations row is not to be taken lightly. Thanks again, Amazon Prime Video

A tale of retribution and loyalty between blood and non-blood ties
Verified purchase
Solid performances in this dark, cautionary tale about drug gangs fighting for control in gritty Los Angeles. It's great watching women (eg the redemptive Danay Garcia) in central roles, leading the charge in redressing past sins, and also good seeing fierce Latinas on screen, making for terrific combos. I also liked the storytelling focus: centering on a handful of characters, who reveal their emotional stakes and scores to settle, from their points of view. A story of betrayals centered on both the strength, and fragility, of blood and non-blood ties.

Good film overall, good pace
Verified purchase
It's good to see films with an all Latina/Latino cast. Not just black and white all the time as if that's the only two races in America. With that said I think people who say strong female lead personifying male characteristics is still very male slanted especially when men direct supposedly 'women's roles' and just make them walking vaginas with a gun. Overall I like the reality of the film (I guess for stereotyping gang bangers, everyone is in a situation of fright or flight or fight, basic human brain stuff) and it was a good pace. Everyone played realistic roles (acting for the most part was like legit churros).

My pet peeve why it's 4 stars is just the writer's/plot of the main character's absurdity (SPOILER ALERT, MATURE THEMES) - Don't read more if you plan to watch the film, is why would after the first incident would Loca go and leave the cousin in the house, go get high with her friend and you know other self-centered stuff.... Seriously, that seemed dumb supposedly for such a 'street' smart character who loves and wanted to protect her cousin. What I would liked to have seen (my plot alternative) if I was the writer is Loca appear to leave her cousin's place only to come back around and shoot and torture that guy (Quentin Tarantino style). But then it woulda been The End and would have ended the movie right there, haha. The gratuitous sex or sexualizing the female character thrown in is so typically male-directed too.

I guess the other ending made more sense (to the script then). The plot seemed pretty convoluted about who was revenging who I kinda got confused. I just know someone did something to someone creating a series of domino events, new alliances who were trying to form a drug business together and then at the end of the day everyone is dealing drugs to their own people and perpetuating addictions and self-fulfilling prophecy and legacy of more drugs and violence. Very human survival Reptilian brain stuff.

This is a cautionary story in the end of drugs, gang violence, (some sex) and most of all I'm channeling Nancy Reagan from the 80's: Just Say no to drugs and violence kids. Guns are very very bad, but people are much much worse.

I really liked everything about this film. It's story-telling at its finest. I will definitely watch it again at some point. Painful seeing SB like that. My God! He looks like he's in his 80s.

We're not biased or anything but.....

An excellent movie with many moving parts that come together. We were contacted by the producer Nathan Gabaeff to use our Sugar skull crystal cameo as a movie prop. Never in a million years did we think it would be an integral part of the movie plot. We are BEYOND over joyed by this! <3

Surprising and well written, like a documentary of a familial vendetta which has to play out..
Verified purchase
Well cast and portrayed with an authentic feel of street life about retaliation and murder as an everyday, handed down expectation/vocation.

I think it could have been a lot better if they would have picked up the pace
Verified purchase
Tried very hard to watch this film. I think it could have been a lot better if they would have picked up the pace. I made it 1/3 into the movie and just could not take it ant longer. Remember though, that's just my opinion!
