La Linea Reviews:

La Linea is a nice film, but it is also a bit of a trick, which may harm the movie eventually. No doubt that the distributors and the Hollywood machine will test to store this movie as a topical action movie snatched right out of the headlines. In actuality, La Linea is a classic hero study of few complex folks who converge and/or collide in the very risky town of Tijuana, Mexico.Ray Liotta plays a hired killer (whose paymaster we don't know until the end), who heads down in the underbelly of Tijuana to track down a the newly installed head of the Cartel (Esai Morales). The trouble is that Esai Morales' hero is trying to transport the Cartels business from Cocaine (which, in this story, is approved by the US government), to Afghani Heroin. This decision sets into motion an internal struggle for control of the crime syndicate, as well as triggers the US government to send in killers to receive rid of the problem.Sounds like an action film for Dolph Lundgren, right? No. Interestingly enough, La Linea is really a multiple hero study: An killer haunted by guilt. An uber-violent Cartel leader that has to go to confession everyday. The killers sidekick who is more interested in local hookers than getting the hit done. A local prostitute and single mother who takes a stranger in and cares for him. These are all storyline lines that thread through this very dark tail. I did play the film, and I would definitely suggest it. My only hope is that the powers that be store the movie for what it is, so that folks who are looking to see a Dolph Lundgren film, don't pick it up and are disappointed. This is a very well done film, with pretty cinematography and from what I understand, fully independently financed. We need more like it.


Although you'd be forgiven for mistaking THE LINE for an action flick, it turns out to be anything but: this is in current fact a hero study of different interacting and rival personalities in a violent Mexican city. Ray Liotta bags the central and most interesting role as a hit-man traumatised by an happening in his past and given the occasion to create amends in the present.Against him is gang leader Pelon, played to the hilt by the chilling Esai Morales. This is a guy who thinks nothing of torturing rivals to death and who totally deserves his comeuppance – could it ever come about. The helping cast is made up of an perfect ensemble of actors, including those better known for B-movies (Danny Trejo and Gary Daniels both have brief henchman roles) as well as more familiar faces. Andy Garcia, who's been off our screens for quite some time, is particularly interesting as the former gangster wasting away from a terminal illness. Also look out for Bruce Davison, an unrecognisable Armand Assante and the ever-underrated Joe Morton.This may not be an action movie, but there is at least one splendid shoot-out to enjoy. In any case, the whole movie is well shot and the script holds your attention in the snappy, heartfelt dialogue scenes as well as the thriller elements. Comparing it to another newest gangster movies, it comes in under CITY OF GOD but above GOMORRAH.


Wow, it's getting to where I really can't believe IMDb ratings to decide what to watch anymore. This film is underrated. I suspect many folks who rated it low, wanted more explosions and vehicle chases. This is not an action film. It is a subtle yet intense look at how a person can be extremely tough yet so very vulnerable at the same time. There are no feel nice characters. No role model action heroes. No clear slash lines between nice and bad.Other reviewers have noted that it was confusing. Admittedly the script was confusing at first. It wasn't clear who was motivated by what, and what flashbacks meant what to whom. But about halfway through the movie it begins to come together beautifully and continues to do so to the interesting and somewhat moving end. If you stop waiting for the gratuitous action scenes which never happen, and just watch the story, it works well. Yes, some plot points seem a tiny unrealistic, but that's why I place the storyline at only a 7.While the storyline is good, the acting is all around superb. I have never been the largest Liotta fan. He's good, but like a lot of tough guy hero actors, sometimes his tough guy persona crosses the line into bluffery in my opinion. Not here. He was near perfect. Almost everyone was, including minor characters played by folks I have never heard of. No fake looking bluffery, nothing overdone. I would give this a 7 for storyline and direction, but the acting puts it up to 8.Also, the melody was as wonderfully selected as the actors. There was a mission in the middle of the film where one hero began to cry. We aren't shown explicitly why, no details, but we are shown enough to understand and fill in her storyline for ourselves. I found that one scene, with the song from Music Gardot, particularly beautiful.In a nutshell, I would describe this as a smoulderingly intense drama. If you are looking for an action thriller you will be disappointed.
