    Synopsis


    Blood In Blood Out
    Taylor Hackford directed this urgent melodrama about the realities of street crime, gangs, and prison life among the Chicanos of East Los Angeles. Miklo (Damian Chapa), Paco (Benjamin Bratt) and Cruz (Jesse Borrego) are three friends who are living in the East Los Angeles of 1972 as it is torn apart by violence. When the gang violence hits the three friends, they are affected by their participation in the bitter violence in different ways. Cruz, an artist, becomes crippled, and he sinks deeply into drug addiction. Paco, an accessory to murder, joins the military to avoid jail time, leading to a spot on the LAPD. Miklo, the kid with the gun, is sent to jail, where he slowly rises up in the ranks of La Onda, the San Quentin Latino gang. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      I saw this movie back in the day. I was still in highschool and it caused a lot of raw emotions in people. Especially in the latino community (I am Latino). I especially love the different depictions of the sureno lifestyle in the mid 80's and low 90's. I actually think that this movie may be closer to the Cholo way than American Me (another great mafia/gang movie) and certainly way better than Colors. Now that I can watch it in a completely different context and with a more objective, hopefully mature mind, it is indeed a great acted and well directed movie for sure. The big moments are heart-felt and the story sucks you in from the beginning. I highly recommend watching, especially if you like serious crime movies.

      This movie could not have been better written or depicted by the actors. It's an excellent story about "reverse or contemporary racism". Meaning that the Caucasian in the movie is the minority growing up in a Mexican family with a Mexican mother and a white, bigoted father. His father tried to beat his heritage out of him. But blood is thicker than anything, and his love for the Mexican part of his family puts him in a very un-enviable situation. Being a Caucasian myself gorwing up as the minority in a Mexican neighborhood really brought this home. It's about 3 hours but well worth every minute!

      I love this movie. I've had a copy of this movie forever, and recently it started messing up when I attempted to watch it. I immediately searched and found it right away on Best Buy.com. This is a classic, and Best Buy didn't let me down. Check it out !

      A very good movie. Director Taylor Hackford almost perfectly portrays the feel & the mood of the time period that Blood in Blood out takes place. It’s about family, respect, honor, amongst a few other key topics.

      3 hours worth of greatness, I enjoyed everything about this movie. The producers did a great job at portraying what actually goes in these neighborhoods.
