| Huge disappointment.
I had read an article about the film and its story about Puerto Rico's underground struggle for independence. I was excited to see it at one of the film festivals. I expected to see a film that touched on the many levels of the political, social, and psychological consequences of the people who keep the struggle alive. What I saw instead was a film akin to a cheesy soap opera. The evolution of the plot makes sense if you help the director by assuming some missing scenes. Initially there were some characters I liked. But, truth be told I lost interest in them due to the erratic pacing of the film. You want to like this film...and you wait for a moment that will finally suck you in and help redeem it. But, in the end you don't get a sense of the tone or style that this film is going for. It's hard to take something like this serious when it's presented in such a crude and inefficient way. Reminds me of the Jimmy Smits boxing film "Price of Glory." Horribly done. Don't waste your time unless it appears on the USA network...and even then you might want to just catch a few minutes of it.
