| Terrific movie. Great casting. Should do well!
I recently had the pleasure of attending a screening of "From Mexico With Love." No compromises here. The film takes the hot button topic of illegal immigration and skillfully blends it with a multiplicity of human emotions to create an all around fulfilling story.

"From Mexico With Love" is without a doubt one of the better-cast films of late. There are no weak links. Each and every character adds something significant to the story and each and every actor is outstanding. Kudos must go to a great ensemble cast. Kuno Becker deserves the attention he has received from such respected media critics as Roger Ebert, who said of Kuno Becker's performance in "Goal! The Dream Begins" – 'Kuno has not only star quality but something more rare, likability. He makes us want his character to succeed.' I couldn't agree more. Steven Bauer, one of my long-time favorite actors, is back in top form and his acting in the movie is reminiscent of his award winning performances in "Traffic" and "Scarface." It is nice to watch a film that relies on story instead of outrageous special effects. Don't get me wrong; I enjoy the summer Hollywood blockbusters, as much as the next guy, but at the end of the day it is refreshing to watch a film with a meaningful story. "From Mexico With Love" is a film that shows we don't need to go offshore to find an independent film with heart and a meaningful story.

Oh yeah, and the fight sequences were the best I have ever seen. The filmmakers used a new device that allowed the fighter's punches to literally come through the screen. It was awesome.
