REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."Broken Horses" is an otherwise predictably violent tour through drug gang warfare on the Mexican border..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..while Chopra attempts to crack the American market with a slice of cinematic apple pie, he holds up a mirror to how Hollywood's tried-and-true narrative of vigilantism connotes who we are, at home and overseas..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
