Great
27 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie....... I am from El Paso Texas and these killings have been happening approx. since 2003 and this movie really needed to be made so that people can realize that it is happening in my sister city. El Paso and Juarez are in different countries, but they both join into one. So this problem is not only Mexico's, but it is also a problem that the US experiences. The only reason that this movie is not a 10 is because is did have a bit too much drama... but we have to remember all the hell that this movie got not only from Mexican officials, but from Hollywood. So i give mad props to JLo, Antonio, & to everyone who produced/ contributed to this film.
