Paco will Boxer werden, entscheidet sich nach einem einschneidenden Erlebnis für eine Karriere als Cop; Cruz flüchtet sich nach einer brutalen Schlägerei in die Drogenabhängigkeit; und Miklo, der Cruz mit einem Mord rächt, arbeitet sich im Gefängnis in der Hierarchie nach oben. His cousin Cruz speaks to him about joining a gang while his other cousin Paco said he will not be accepted due to his looks. Film Review It is amazing how you can start with no real expectations at all, only to find yourself ending up with a real gem of a movie. While Paco is taking Miklo to the hospital he crashes the car and they get arrested by the police. Based on the true life experiences of poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, the film focuses on half-brothers Paco and Cruz, and their bi-racial cousin Miklo. He is sent to live with his cousins after attacking his father. They do not accept him at first because he looks white.
Milko attacks a rival gang to prove his loyalty to the Vatos Locas. I will admit though, that I did squirm at some of Miklo's earlier expressions in the f… I've read several comments about this movie and I agree with most of them that give an excellent note to this film. And should that seem somewhat corny, he has egged the whole thing with masses of violence, a massacre sequence stylistically lifted from The Godfather, and even a car-chase. It opens in 1972, as the three are members of an East L. I dare to compare the chemistry which arose from this collaboration between the images of Taylor Hackford and the music of Bill Conti to the one who was born in the sixties between Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone.
Paco feels guilty for introducing Miklo into the gang life and feels he is responsible for all of the trouble Milko got into. The music of Blood In Blood Out is amazing. Even Damian Chapa isn't bad in this movie he usually is, think Street Fighter… O… I first saw this film a few years ago when my brother stumbled across it in a bargain basement basket bin! He is having a hard time being accepted by the people where he grew up due to his light complexion, blonde hair, and blue eyes. I must honestly admit that I have watched this movie in awe, until the closing credits were gone. It thoroughly explores the destiny of its 3 young stars as they struggle to make their way with the life path they have taken. The La Onda gang stops the rape not due to respect for Miklo but because they feel the actions were dishonorable. Cruz looking for something to ease his pain from the attack becomes a heroin addict.
Milko is changed with probation violation and sent to San Quentin Prison. . His younger brother overdoes on his supply and dies. What a travesty for a start that it had not made a bigger mark at the box office and had been consigned to a cheap basket! On the outside Milko gets into more trouble and is retuned to prison. It opens in 1972, as the three are members of an East L.
Wieder auf freiem Fuß treffen er und Paco, die einstigen Blutsbrüder, bei einem Drogendeal aufeinander. A mess and a waste. Milko kills another inmate during a sexual encounter. Miklo is of Mexican and Anglo decent. Miklo, Cruz, and Paco are members of the Vatos Locos gang and the viewers can see how their lives change throughout the film. Cruz becomes an exceptional artist, but a heroin addiction overcomes him with tragic results. He even gets his tattoo to show that he is an official member.
The movie Blood In Blood out follows the lives of three gang members in East Los Angeles. It is a story of rival gangs, family, love, betrayal, loyalty, acceptance — every film cliché you could think of. They tell Miklo the only way to be a member is to kill a fellow inmate. It serves really well the ambiance and the spirit of the movie and I don't understand why this score has been so ignored by music amateurs. Drei Freunde wachsen in einem Barrio im Los Angeles der 70er Jahre auf. The performances rely more on how good the actors' tattooed pecs look in a vest than their ability to deliver a line, and as the token blue-eyed blond Chicano, Damian Chapa is outstandingly awful, having to resist homosexual blandishments so camp one wonders if the whole movie might be a spoof in the worst possible taste. More than that, he has attempted to dramatise an unflinching depiction of life in the barrio, San Quentin jail and the Narcotics Squad with a potboiler plot about blood brothers who pursue conflicting fates.
The Aryans are trying to rape him and he is almost raped by one of his own. Paco having completed his time as a Marine returns to Los Angels and works on the narcotics unit with the Los Angeles Police Department. He is eventually released on parole. Due to this Cruz is disowned by his family. I have been reading the postings, and many negative comments have been made about this film, but I believe this film stands up to much of its unfair criticism. Shouted Speedy Gonzalez-style, the dialogue is torrid and profane in the extreme, except when it drops the volume to sermonise creakily about destiny, race, loyalty-unto-death and so forth. Trying to set move Mean Streets style film from being Italian-American to being Hispanic is no bad thing, as long as you actually have something worth writing about, which in this case hackford clearly does not.
I won't give away the plot as I believe anyway who truly loves films should see this film in its full glory with no knowledge of the plot or how the film eventually plays out. Cruz kicks his drug habit and is reunited with his family. In my opinion, this adds to the 'real feel' of the movie and is one of it's strong points the casting, that is. Hollywood filmmakers are notoriously reluctant to step out of their own back yard, but when one can increasingly say of Los Angeles that it contains all forms of human life and behaviour, why travel? Paco goes into the military. Drug addiction, life in prison and 'betrayal' are the main subjects here and they don't fail to demand attention. Cruz becomes an exceptional artist, but a heroin addiction overcomes him with tragic results.
I'm sure if released with more fanfare this time it would reach the audience it deserves! In this stereotypically-fuelled moralistic gangster movie, the plot is poor, the acting worse and standing at three hours, proves about three hours too long. Despite this, only recently has Tinseltown acknowledged the existence of great swathes of L. Thank you for your talent. The rival gang gets revenge by attacking Cruz. For my part, I'd like to tell to everyone who likes movie scores that Bill Conti has made a fantastic job in this one. This movies was filmed in the areas of Los Angeles where there is a large Hispanic population and from inside the walls of San Quentin State Prison. .
