You are proud of Daddy Yankee and this insignificant film? This film didn’t make you or any Rican look like a stud or a population of heroes. You wrote a report on Puerto Rican murders like if it’s something to be proud of and to the Boricua dismay you posted it on the internet. If I was a film producer, I would film a movie about Dr. Ramon Emiterio Betances, a real Puerto Rican Hero/humanitarian whom is loved by even people from other countries. I saw a statue of him in France, and he is a champion in the Dominican Republic, and in Cuba and one of the best physicians/surgeons in history. The practice of OB/GYN, PA’s and Nurse Practitioners owe him major credit and contributions. But who am I to say…right? I’m just a Black Doctor razed in South Bronx projects by wonderful Ricans that despite adversities taught me (what you call) the “reality” of life. Cono despierta Boricua!

Miguel my brother, waking up is something we must all do. To Cario’s defense, I believe he was also talking about the quality of the film production (he even stated he liked it because it reminded him of his life in PR). I also believe that Ricans can do better not only in the art of film but in every aspect. Such as Cario I have seen it too (Puerto Rican greatness) and I’m not even Boricua. This movie in my opinion is shallow, not because it’s about caserio or barrio life but because the movie was poorly shot and the plot was cheep. This film comes nothing close to In the Time of Butterflies; a film about the Dominican struggle during the time of Leonidas Trujillo, The Lost City; about the Cuban revolution, Love in the Time of Cholera: based on Nobel Prize winning novel (Columbian author), The Motorcycle Diaries; Che Guevara’s journey as a medical student …and the list goes on with movies about Latinos. But with Puerto Rican’s rich history, incredible talents, and abundant thinkers…

Cario, you are so very right on that. It couldn't been said better! Boricuas like DaBoss make Ricans seem culturaless and ignorant. He even wrote "cracker from Ohio". Does any one know why they where killing eachother in the movie? This was a rediculous film. I grew up in a Caserio in PR and this is a bunch of crap. This film made us look bad and I don't appreciate when Boricuas validate anti-Puerto Rican sentiment. Cario you seem to be a very educated person, but you where generous in your rating.

Es interesante que esta pelicula fue impresionante para mis amistades mas ignorantes. Estoy de acuedo que es una historia "del barrio" pero la vida de barrio es mucho mas complejo e poetico de que la pelicula deja entender. Los Puertorriqueños pueden hacer mejor, you lo e visto escribir y produsir mejor. Me gusta esta pelicula solo por que me acuerda mi vida en P.R. Pero, entendiendo que esos "crackers" (grigos - vulgarmente hablando) son los que pagan los billetes grandes el cual dara la opportunidad de superarse aquel Boricua talentoso. Si eres aquel que penso que esta pelicula fue fantastica, es usted que con sus propios ojos veras como otros Latinoamericanos nos pasa por ensima.

Funny how it was impresive to my most ignorant friends. I agree that it's a story "del barrio" but barrio life is much more deep and poetic than that. Puerto Ricans can do better, Ive seen them write and produce better. I like this movie because it gave me memories of my upbringing however it's those "crackers" that pay the big bucks that would give talented Boricuas a chance. If you think this was fantastic, than you will be the same ones watching other Latinos pass you over (pasandote por ensima).

if you're a cracker from Ohio, don't even bother....you have to be from Puerto Rico (or somewhere similar) to understand this film. Well done.
