Saw this at the Austin Film Festival last October and had to support it when it hit theaters. Truly a great origin story and a necessary representation of a hero beyond the comic book universes. 👍🏽

It had so much potential but the story just seems lazy.

I felt like I’d seen this movie before. It’s a mixture of John Wick with every Latin gangster movie you’ve already seen. Story line is weak, and it’s very sinister and violent. I would not watch again.

For his part, Castillo makes the best of the clunky dialogue and cliché lines, but the story never lets his acting chops shine through.

Working alongside veteran screenwriter Joe Carnahan, who’s made his name with this kind of brash, muscular storytelling in films like “Narc” and “The Grey,” Hernandez Bray tries to get his arms around a lot at once. Quite often, he’s successful.

The film, marking Ben Hernandez Bray's directorial debut, is mainly a violent police procedural and vigilante drama that succeeds well enough on those terms. It's also notable for its almost entirely Latino cast and deep immersion into East Los Angeles culture. The pic certainly looks authentic, despite the fact that it was largely shot in Calgary.
