| Action, father and son story, evil bad guys
La Soga is great. A believable, well-acted assassin (tough, but sensitive) who is beginning to doubt the motives behind his orders from the corrupt General, makes a great story, and unravels well with the revenge story about Luisito (La Soga)trying to find his father's murderer. It is beautifully shot in the DR and Washington Heights, has a very fitting score, wonderful acting by a Dominican cast. The revenge story, and love story, keep you watching. The action is excellent, and the view of gritty drug lords and corrupt government counterparts is the stuff movies are made of. The father and son story is touching, and echoed throughout. The visceral reminder of how human-human violence is akin to (but clearly not the same as) human-livestock 'violence' (ie. butcher references) was obvious, but poetic nonetheless. I loved it.
