Los Caminantes Vs. The Mafia!

In Caminantes Si Hay Caminos, popular Mexican group Los Caminantes are asked to play a private show at their old hometown of San Francisco Del Rincon, Guanajuato Mexico. They agree to and off they go to play the luxurious private show at their ol' hometown. When they arrive, it all seems well at first but then it turns out the private show is just a setup to get Los Caminantes to mule cocaine for a mobster. The mobster plans on putting the drugs in the music equipment of Los Caminantes! Terrible, isn't it?! If that isn't worse enough, it also turns out the town has been going through rough times since the mobster has taken over the town and fucked shit up. A town drunk tells of the town's troubles to the manager of Los Caminantes. When the manager's girlfriend gets kidnapped by the mobster's son, the manager and the police search for her, get in gun battles with mobster guards, and Los Caminantes also join in on the gun battles (AHHH!).

Oh my, this movie is just awesome. Too awesome actually. We got Los Caminantes playing some of their kick ass songs and there's awesome over the top action at the same time? Really? Really?!?!!?!

I honestly never imagined I would ever see a Mexican action flick starring Los Caminantes. I mean seriously, this is just unbelievable! I actually got to see Caminantes lead singer Agustin Ramirez firing a gun and then singing in a packed concert! GOOD LORD, HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?!?!! AHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, that's really all I got to say about Caminantes Si Hay Caminos. The movie is just plain awesome and perfect. If you're a fan of Los Caminantes and have not seen this movie, then I highly recommend you do it soon because you are missing out on some good shit right here. Check out Caminantes Si Hay Caminos very soon! AHH!!! 7/10.

That Old Man Was A Fucking Asshole.

In Era Cabron El Viejo (aka "That Old Man Was An Asshole"), Viejo Paulino (old man Paulino) is sought after by his compadre (godfather) who is his rival in the drug trafficking business. The compadre has sent out a bunch of assassins to kill Paulino but they've all failed since Paulino and his sidekick always shoot the fuckers down with their AK-47's (ay guey!). Paulino has had enough with the rivalry with his compadre, so he decides to kill him along with his cousin, a snitch, and some cops that work for the compadre. He also kidnaps his compadre's young niece whom later ends up falling in love with him. Viejo Paulino is a fucking asshole, huh?

Era Cabron El Viejo starts off really good. Asshole Viejo Paulino guns down a car which then explodes (best opening credits ever), a drunk Fernando Almada acts grouchy, then there's some random shooting between Paulino and other old assholes (of course), then the movie takes a turn for the lamest with pointless comedic scenes, Paulino being nice to a little sick girl and being a romantic with his compadre's niece. What the fuck? I thought this was Era Cabron El Viejo, not Era Nice & Romantico El Viejo!!

Era Cabron El Viejo could of been so much better if Viejo Paulino was an asshole through out the whole movie, not half asshole/romantic/father figure.

Meh, Era Cabron El Viejo is whatever. Curious? Check it out I guess. Not curious? Then walk away and watch something else. 2/10.
