I Am The Law.

After being sent away to prison by the town he once ran; Insane criminal Tulio Ramirez (Roberto Flaco Guzman) has escaped with the help of his hot girlfriend (Lorena Herrera) and a one-hand & silent lackie of his (Carlos East). Tulio Ramirez is going back to the town that was once his. Not take it over again though because he has no desire to run it anymore. He just wants to rid of the citizens that were responsible for his incarceration (naturally). Before he heads to the town, he meets up with his old criminal buddies and acquires weaponry & mercenaries for his revenge on the town. When words gets out that Tulio is coming for them, the town citizens fear for their lives and prepare as much as possible to fight him back. Luckily, the town will be getting help from Andres (Jorge Reynoso), a badass former cop who was incarcerated as well, but managed to escaped in order to nab Tulio.

If there's one word to describe Yo Soy La Ley (aka "I Am The Law") that one word would be "epic". Yo Soy La Ley is basically the best Mexican action-crime movie of the 1990's. Epic story, epic characters, epic cast, epic violence, and epic finale. The movie is epic non-stop! Well acted as well. Damian Acosta Esparza went all out with this one. He did his best and succeeded at directing this movie. Next to Damian, Roberto Flaco Guzman also did his best in this movie playing Tulio. Tulio was a mean, crazy guy and quite likable. Flaco obviously got into this role so well. It was truly believable and amazing! Then of course Jorge Reynoso is the 3rd man that made this movie so great. His character Andres stays positive through this ordeal and stays focused on hunting down his old enemy Tulio Ramirez. Once the two face off near the end, it's so satisfying. I love that scene so much. Also can't forget to mention Lorena Herrera. She was the eye candy of the movie. She didn't speak much in the movie, but she really didn't need to because she's just there to look hot. Clearly.

Like I said before, Yo Soy La Ley is the best Mexican action-crime movie of the 1990's. It a 1 hour and 30 minute epic experience. I love it so much and I think you will too. If you're into this genre that is. 10/10.

Slaughterhouse Revenge.

Who knew being a slaughterhouse worker was so dramatic. Take the movie El Destazador (aka "The Cutter") for instance. Jorge Reynoso plays Everardo; a union leader for a pretty big slaughterhouse somewhere in Mexico. He is well respected by his peers and even local politicians (hmm..). One day, after Everardo meets with a local politician and exchanges words with him (some sort of negotiation),—he goes back home with his working partner and gets drunk with him. After hard drinking, Everardo's girlfriend gives his dick a good stroking with her tits and then after finishing him off, Everardo's partner pulls out a gun and shoots him right in the head.

 Believed to be dead—Everardo wakes up at the slaughterhouse being prepared to be.. Slaughtered. Everardo instead chops up the assassin by throwing him into one of those pointy grinding machines. From then on, Everardo decides to kill everyone that was part of his attempted assassination. He's naturally going to kill them all in the slaughterhouse. They're gonna be treated like the pigs he cuts up daily! Everardo does however spare one person's life and that is the politician's wife. He realizes she has been abused by her greedy husband and she needs affection. He then develops a morbid relationship with her and even eats spicy human flesh tacos with her (seriously).

Such drama in the slaughterhouse! El Destazador definitely lives up to its title since Jorge Reynoso's character cuts up everybody that betrayed him. He throws em in the chopping/grinding machines and cuts off their limbs with a machete & knife. Such anger & brutality, eh? While the scenes with Everardo cutting his victims weren't too graphic, there are actual scenes where pigs are being cut up into chops. I wasn't a fan of seeing that happening, but I do respect these scenes being in the movie since it is set in an actual slaughterhouse. But be warned that these scenes with the pigs are very graphic. So if stuff like that upsets you, then you def need to skip these scenes. What was so interesting about the movie is that the character Everardo narrates the entire movie through his jail cell. He's apparently confessing in front of reporters & such. He is such a prick, but very honest. You got to love him! I wanted more Everardo talking shit scenes!

El Destazador is yet another Christian Gonzalez movie I enjoyed. It’s one of his best thrillers for sure. It's on point and honest. No bull & exaggerations. Definitely don't miss this one. Watch it!
