    Bordertown straddles two realms: the worthy and the kitsch. The flimsy conspiracy theories floated here, coupled with pic's trite thriller plotting, risk trivializing the atrocities while it obfuscates their causes.

    How this film got past the critics is beyond me! Just by bringing attention to such an important and serious issue makes it one of the most interesting films i've seen! I had no idea about it and even though it has some shortcomings on script and direction i think it did a great job on suspense and characters! Lopez is amazing in it as well as Maya Zapata! Great film! Expand
