    If this is even a reasonably accurate account of someone's real life, then we as a culture may be in worse shape than we imagine.

    Like many first films, Boricua's Bond is wildly uneven.

    At the most basic level, Boricua's Bond is at war with itself.
  4. Suffers from a fatal lack of modulation. It paints a picture of inner-city life as an endless sequence of beatings and shouting matches, and in its glum cartoonishness insults the people whose strivings it means to honor.
  5. If you haven't had enough of the Central Park rampage videos showing human nature at its worst, you could always pay to see Boricua's Bond.
  6. 10
    Despite its incoherence and inaudible dialogue, this slice-of-life film manages to be simultaneously thuggish and platitudinous.
