I love this flick! Great acting from Edward James Olmos and a true to the heart movie about a young Mexican American boy with a troubled childhood. This movies takes you back to the Zoot Suit days and the riots, where tragedy strikes a young couple, thus, changing the course of their lives forever. Santana grows up in the system in and out of Juvie and then Jail where he rules the outside from the inside. This movie outlines the inner workings of "La M" The Mexican Mafia but also gives you a glimpse of what is like to be one of these men. Not entirely monsters, but actual caring human beings who dont know how to love the right way. I love this movie and have seen it hundreds of times. Also the soundtrack is one of the awesomest records on earth!
This film has many memorable lines. Including this one between father and son (Edward James Olmos) "Your mother was a beautiful woman. She made me feel proud. She was 19 years old. Raped... by sailors. After it happened, we never talked about it. Then we got married and we tried to forget. When you were born, I tried to love you. But every time I looked at you, I wondered who your real father was. I wondered which sailor's blood you carried inside of you."
This is a biographic film of a chicano youth in Los Angeles who rises to power in the prison system but his power reaches out to the streets of LA.
This is a great movie based on a true story. I seen it years ago and enjoyed it from start to finish. Its an interesting story about highschool friends who formed their own gang.
this is a great movie about a mexican american teen who forms his own gang at the age of 15. He goes to jail, and there is raped and kills the boy who did it earning him "respect". he then moves on to prison at age of 18, learns what the hard life is about, he gets out one day and goes right back in. he has a drug ring working for him. its a must see.
This is an excellent movie spanning from WWII through the 70s. It shows life for the youth in the inter city of E.LA, and what some did to survive. It's loosely based on a true story.
