- Summary: Telenovela and 'Goal!' heartthrob Kuno Becker stars in this action-packed boxing picture about a angry, young fighter taken under the wing of a washed-up trainer looking for his one last shot at glory. (Roadside Attractions)
This up-from-the-fields slice of Tejano pride is a punchy, melodramatic piece of tried-and-true Americana that mixes cultures (and film genres) with an eye toward knocking down borders both cultural and contemporary.
There's scarcely a boxing-movie cliche left unrecycled by the end of From Mexico With Love, an inaptly titled and thoroughly predictable indie drama directed by vet stunt coordinator and fight choreographer Jimmy Nickerson.
