Much better than I expected
I've never left a review before but I just finished watching it and wanted to say that this was much, MUCH better than I expected and deserves a far better rating than 5 just stars. The acting was very good, especially Shawn Lock, I think he's going to be getting much more well known in the future.
I thought the movie really captured the feeling of Mexico, both the tourist side and the underside with well written fast-paced story that never leaves you getting bored like most 'action' movies. Even though the film had a smaller budget it doesn't give you that cheesy feeling that you usually get from smaller budget movies.
All in all I highly recommend it, especially to watch with the girlfriend that enjoys action movies but can do without the obviously fake gore that most movie makers these days seem to try and use to cover up all the other flaws.
What a surprising gem!
Having been to TJ before, I have only the greatest respect for the feel of the lonely lost feeling of being afraid and alone in a foreign country with no right forward of what to do! I was there in 1990 and experienced a medical situation with no idea what was to come! This flick had the perfect full on gritty feel to it, and the scared feeling of what was around the corner at every turn! The lighting was perfect to set the mood and the chaos was spot on! If anyone ever gets lost in TJ then good luck! Those memories are prevalent as I watched this! Not a bad flick! I would recommend this for sure! The real feel is there and the real fear is there! Imagine if it was you!

A middle action movie with good action scenes: Watchable
Daniel Zirilli pack a mid-level action movies; the best of the cast is Jacob Vargas but also Shawn Lock is a good performance as lead star; Tom Sizemore instead appears in only three scenes but it's okay, Luke Goss instead only makes a cameo.Also the rest cast is good and Ryan Youngblood is the film antagonist, but Maria Gabriela De Farià have the sleazy role of the film. Here action there get enough and when it comes to this kind of film is already a lot since the film is based on this, given that the plot is not original enough...Good action scenes for a middle action movie but in its genre still watchable...Curiosity: the film was shot in Mexico.
