The movie had SO much potential.
The story line had some odd holes in it, IE the assassin who ultimately served absolutely no purpose. Literally. ZERO, purpose. He could have assasinated someone, but that never happened.
The "medicine" man guy also didn't have a purpose because there was no backstory of who he actually is. Hence why I used the quotes... a lot more Native American than anything, so the plot hole threw me off bad here.
The overall story was eh, ok.
The directing was horrendous, and I say this because Chapa, is a white guy, playing a Mexican gang kingpin. Every scene he was in was thrown off so badly. Which doesn't make any sense to me as a Director as the rest of the cast was cast appropriately to the race they represent. Even the Armenian for god sake was cast correctly...
But for some reason the director also wanted to be a star, and that's where the huge mess up happens for me.
If he had cast correctly and spent more time behind the cameras and set this movie WOULD have been so much better.
There's a lacking of attention to detail. The magic marker tattoos almost never line up in later scenes, or you can see the bleed out. Research better paint.
I feel like the casting for some of the other supporting roles wasn't done well. The Mexican "Rambo" and the entire fight scene at the end of the movie was annoying and honesty chard to watch.
The entire last 15 minutes of the movie are grueling to watch... you can literally tell where the management lost steam and everything was kind of just tossed together and then that was it. Which is why I say this movie HAD potential.
