Movie Reviews

Mario's Big Break
Greg D Lewis | West Hollywood, CA United States | 05/01/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a surprisingly thoughtful movie about a flawed, but decent young man torn between the life of easy money and upward mobility that a mob boss offers him or staying true to the impoverished community where he came from. Mario Lopez gives a very well-acted performance in what should be a star-making role for him. He also demonstrates the kind of charisma and physical presence to be an action hero in feature films. Hollywood producers should take note."
A very inspiring story

"I have seen Mario on TV for years. So I thought of buying this DVD. After watching it I was truly insipred by the story and the acting in this movie. The story is great and original, and Mario is terrific. I am amazed that he hasn't hit the big screen in big way, yet. But with this movie if the right people are watching, he will, I am certain. He has all the making of a super action hero. I would definitely recommend this movie to people who like uplifting and inspiring stories."
Great Story and acting...
