REVIEW: From Mexico With Love
Hot up-and-coming Latin star Kuno Becker (GOAL!) lights up the screen in From Mexico with Love, an action-packed boxing drama from director Jimmy Nickerson, a veteran stunt coordinator and fight choreographer for such iconic bare-knuckle films as Raging Bull, Rocky and Fight Club. Struggling migrant farm worker Hector (Becker) spends his days in the fields and his nights as a part-time prizefighter. But when Hector discovers the rich rancher has slashed his mother’s wages, he pays the ultimate price for brawling with the boss’ thugs: a one-way ticket back over the Mexican border. Beaten up, broke and jobless, Hector joins forces with an old-school trainer and sets his sights on the rancher’s boxer son for the ultimate David-and-Goliath faceoff.
“An inspiring tale” (Variety) that “mixes cultures (and film genres) with an eye toward knocking down borders both cultural and contemporary” (Austin Chronicle), From Mexico with Love delivers a knockout punch on DVD on February 16, 2009
