4.5 out of 10 Sin Nombre
deirdre from Dublin, 25 May 2010
What an absolutely great movie! It worked on so many levels, it explored issues such as poverty, masculinity, belonging, love, the north/south divide, longing, family, hope, betrayal and how people can be different than how you may think they are.

3 out of 10 Just ok
Keith from Clare, 07 Apr 2011
Wouldnt watch it again ... twas interesting as it depicted how life in Mexico is for the poor working class, the gangs and the corruption...I wouldnt say it was a waste of time watching it, just that it could have easily have been a documentary and not a film, as it had no entertaining plot anyway...but the actors were credible in their part

3.5 out of 10 Sin Nombre
Brock from Limerick, 22 Jul 2010
This touches on a subject and a world I just do not know about and cannot imagine - the thousands of displaced peoples moving from southern and central America for a better life in the North. A subplot touches also on the gangland rife in this region. Sharply shot

4 out of 10 Wow!
Isae from Galway, 09 Jun 2010
Riveting from start to end. Not quite 'City of Gods' but powerful nonetheless.
