This is a very realistic depiction of a story that captures all the feelings of making a game-changing decision for ones life. I was on the edge of my seat and want a Part 2.

This was an extremely violent movie.

A stirring and powerful story of immigration that intertwines that of a young woman trying to make it to America and a young man fleeing the violence of his gang. Given all the anti-immigration rhetoric of the last few years, this is a movie that humanizes the issue and really should be seen by those who continually demonize immigrants. It's the debut film of Cary Fukugana, who would go on to direct an adaptation of "Jane Eyre" and "True Detective." For those who have seen the latter, they will detect a similar mix of strong setting, graphic violence, and lyrical imagery. Bears some comparison with "El Norte" and "Amore Perros." In Spanish with English subtitles. Co-produced by Mexican actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna.

This movie is incredible. Those who think that we should keep Latin American immigrants out should see this film, maybe it will open their eyes!

Wow! What a powerful movie. If I could give out awards, it would be my top award. Well acted and story executed like a delicate fine surgery. The tension is kept throughout, at one point I had to stop and take a break. I wanted so desperately for the main characters to make it across the boarder. If you ever wondered about what it is like to belong to a gang out side of what the media tells us, this is a movie that will give you a peek in; believe me, you don't want to go any further.Whether you agree or not that immigrants should enter this country legally or otherwise, this movie gives you a new respect for the journey. Not for children, and anyone who lets their child watch this is a fool. If you are looking for a tension gripper, this is your film.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well done this movie was. Held my interest throughout the movie, covering topics such as gang culture in Mexico, poverty and the challenges of immigrating to the United States. Caution-Some graphic violence.

This is a good movie. There are some parts of the story that throw me a bit, but most people will not be as critical as me. The ability of the director to shoot this on site was impressive and must have been full of complications. I liked the actors, their acting and the writing was good too. Gringos will love this film.

The fascinating look at the gang culture
overwhelms the feelgood story about redemption. You hope even the most hardened Minuteman would agree , if you survive this gauntlet of violence and hardship then you've earned entry.

Extremely graphic and terrifyingly real I suspect. Although difficult to watch it's important to recognize what goes on and the things we do not hear about often enough.
