Down for the Barrio Reviews:

I have seen a number of Cesar Alejandro's movies and this, his first 35mm, is typical of how terrible they are. It's a bunch of folks spending a lot of time and effort that would be better used...doing anything else. They everytime look and sound as if they've been chopped together on the fly with a porn melody sound track. If you were trying to create a terrible film you couldn't do this well. Forced situations, stilted dialogue, terrible acting, atrocious scripts. He everytime stars, directs and writes and it shows. This one was particularly insulting to Hispanics. The only saving grace is occasionally you receive an interesting camera shot. Mario Becerra probably has to war tooth and nail to receive it in there. By the time this one was over I had a stomachache. Do NOT rent it and don't bother with any Peliculas Alexandria movies. Believe me.


I saw this because I like to see all things El Paso. I was cute disappointed. There was such a nice occasion to discover barrio culture and it fell on cheesy clichés. The production was nice with very great picture and sound. A lot of nice territories can be seen in this film. There are some nice constructive shots in the film but that isn't enough. Tony Plana does his greatest with what terrible script he is given. Some of the another helping actors were good, but some were down right awful. Its not as terrible as some say, but it isn't outstanding either. See it for what it is: an El Paso film. Otherwise don't expect Orson Welles.


I was browsing my Netflix when I stumbled upon this film, I rented it out of curiosity and found myself very immersed in a movie about true people. Actually a days with all the Hollywood movies about giant robots and super heroes, a movie about true folks who experience things that I have experienced really made my night. It is a powerful movie with a powerful message, some nice writing and some nice acting, it is something that you will play if you watch it. A movie that really speaks volumes in communities that have a serious gang trouble and where young kids and teenagers see the worst of it is something that could be watched. I really can't speak for the very mad folks I've seen on here but I really feel it is a movie worth watching.
