yo, this is one of the coldest movies ever, if you haven't had the great opportunity tomeet Miklo, Cruzito, and Paco i suggest you do somethin about it. I suggest you go out and buy it soon. Peace!

Blood In Blood Out is a great story telling example of the struggle a trio of brothers and cousins go through in Los Angles. This Mexican based culture will give you an insight on how ganglife is dominant in the young lives of East Los Angeles. And for those who know all about it, pick up this true ''cholo'' movie.

THIS IS THE ONE MOVIE THAT MADE ME UNDERSTAND WHAT LIFE IN THE STREETS IS REALLY ABOUT NOW I HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR MY CULTURTE

This is the best movie that I have seen portraing how life on the street is. I could watch it over and over. Excelent casting. I loved every minute of it and I hope you do as well.

This movie really hits you, it makes you wonder how life on the street really is. It really is a movie worth watching over and over again!!! VATOS LOCOS 4EVA!

This movie does a worthwhile job of representing the intensity and layers of growing up Latino. If I had seen this movie alone I would have rated it as overdone and overacted. But I watched it with a Mexican person from the barrios of Mexico City. He re-lived his street days through the lives of the three characters, although he'd never set foot in East L.A. I believe the reason we Norte Americanos don't buy the ''overacting'' is because we don't understand a life lived so intensely. The Latin culture is another world, lived on a more intense level than ours here in the States. Family and honor does come before country for Latinos: Brothers will, and do, die to defend their honor. Everytime we watch this movie, my Mexican friend cries. And now I do too, having come to understand the workings of this other world. I highly recommend the film to those who seek a window to another world.

It has been over 5 years since i last saw this movie, and i had the opportunity to watch it a few days ago on cable. It touched my life like most movies never do. I recommend it to those who haven't seen it and to those who have, to remind them of how true to life this movie is.

This Movie is as close as the real life of the L.A. cholos (chicano gang bangers) as anyone really wants to get. This movie is one of those you will never forget.

If u dont have any idea of gangs or what they are, u should watch this movie to at least give u a tip about it. This film showed how a chicanos life was back in the day, i know cuz i am one, i understand every part of the film. It had great meaning and action that films dont have these days. We need more films like this one.

Even if a few scenes are a bit overacted, this is one of my favorite movies. I got ahold of a bootleg copy when I was 15, and am still enjoying it to this day, ten years later. This film is so deeply imbedded in my psyche that I doubt if I will ever stop quoting it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
