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.

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.

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 the best, because it is a story about everyday events on the streets of L.A. and in prison. Also the the plot, scenery, and the actors are all amazing. I recommend this movie to everyone!!!

i think that this film is an accurate portrayal of how seductive and how easy it is to fall into gang life when an individual is surrounded by violence and the possibility of death on an almost daily basis. Oh, and to the respondent who criticized the other reviews look at the last sentence of your paragraph genius!

This is the first time I ever seen a great movie like this. I like this film becouse of the massage they want to tell us. It is all about a life of being the most wanted man by police. You all should watch this movie. Mail me if you one of the fan for this movie.OK.

It's the best movie I've ever seen. Almost anyone could relate to this movie and you wont be able to hold your tears.

Well this is a well directed movie, it had it's action part, it's drug parts, and its sad parts. Overall it's good. Watch it and have fun with it. If you want something better than this, more realistic, with the same theme, watch AMERICAN ME.

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 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.

The best movie of all time - I wish they would make a sequal to this movie, this movie gets major play at my house, if you have a chance pick up the unedited directors cut, it has like 20 extra minuts of footage on the dvd that you cant get on the video, fricking great. I have to say that popeye and big al steal the show, do yourself a huge favor and get this movie, you will not be disapointed, the only person I know that doesnt like it is my girlfriend and my buddy eriks chick, but hey theyre chicks, not vatos locos! Tres Puntos must die homes, hey spider you cut my carnale, Im hear to jack you up puto!!
