| Not Bloody Bad
Listen, people- I don't know what the deal is with all these bad reviews from newsgroups. The genre was new to me, so the characters didn't seem stereotypical from being recycled a thousand times. I LIKED the characters. OK, so the crime boss kinda reminded me of Fat Tony from 'The Simpsons'. Who GIVES?

Some complained that it wasn't slick enough. I LIKED the way it looked. It reminded me of 'Run Lola Run', another of my favourites. At least in the first few minutes, I stopped noticing after that.

And Mario Lopez was good in his role. I thought his scenes were COOL, whether he was at the batting cages or The Salsa Room or failing miserably at eating sushi or whatever. Maybe they could've elaborated on the main character's time in jail a bit more, but his acting wasn't bloody bad.

I'm not saying people shouldn't have the right to say what they thought about the movie or even that everybody should go see it. All I'm saying is that I genuinely enjoyed 'Eastside' because I felt it was a cool movie and I'm surprised that it wasn't better received.
