Editorial Reviews

From executive producer Tony Bill (The Sting, Taxi Driver) comes a gritty and groundbreaking look at Los Angeles gang life in the city's Mexican-American barrios, a powerful forerunner to such later movies as Colors and Menace II Society. Raymond Avila (Richard Yn?iguez) is an ex-gang member trying to build a future. Kid brother Chuco (Danny De La Paz) is a sullen low-rider still caught up in the life. Despite their differences, their family bond is strong. But that bond is violently tested when rivals challenge Chuco's gang - and ignite a neighborhood war. Experience a movie judged "honest, authentic, dramatic and effective" by the Los Angeles
Times' Charles Champlin. Hit this Boulevard.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Bad Bootleg Copy November 13, 2008
I ordered this movie and it was a horrible bootleg copy. I can believe that amazon allows this to happen. I should have known better because this movie has never been produced in dvd its only been in vhs and whoever owns this movie is making copies from a vhs to dvd and it looks dark and grainy. You can hardly see the faces its terrible. So be careful if you are trying to order this movie and if you do, get ready to watch a really bad bootleg copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars "REAL" February 9, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
This movie portrays the "Cholo" life better than any movie out there. It is better than "Colors". I grew up watching this movie and I still watch it now. I recommend it to anybody who likes realistic gang movies!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE, not the best quality November 21, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
beware the quality on this "official" release. It may have produced in a large quantity by somebody calling themselves a factory, but the artwork is a grainy photocopy, and the DVD itself is just a VHS transfer with some sort of contrast filter ran on it. It is NOT digitially remastered and it is not widescreen. There are no bonuses or features. About the only thing that makes it worhtwhile is it takes less space than a VHS, there are chapter breakdowns, and it will not degrade like a VHS will.

BUT, we still need a QUALITY OFFICIAL FACTORY release!

This is as OG as you can get how can we forget this Classic Flick with two brothers Chuco and Raymond. Raymond being the oldest trying to lead a steady life wile his younger brother Chuco member of the VGV gang starts a War with Rival gang 11th Street. No matter how hard Raymond tries to steer his brother in the right direction away from all the violent gang life. Only Chuco desides to go with his homies and the war starts. Now it's all about familia Raymond and Chuco got to do something drastic that can cost them there lives the outcome is serious...

Yes the Official Boulevard Nights (DVD-R) is finally here the original copyright makers of this classic Gangster movie "Warner Bros" you will see that there is a bootleg that has been sold worldwide by a fake named "Theater@home" that is not the Official DVD but a VHS transfer bootleg the quality is horrable I otta know it was givin to me as a last year Christmas present. The picture is very grainy and blurry and some scenes are very dark then some to bright and theres this annoying line on the bottom of the screen that runs back and forth it's kind of hard to watch the movie with that however this "Official" DVD by Warner Bros is excellent quality it has not been remastered or restored but is the "Original Masters" meaning it is the very first Boulevard Nights movie to ever be made. Buy this and you wont dissapointed it is a bit pricey but don't you think it's worth the money it's a rare hard to find Original not bootleg DVD that can last a lifetime if you take care of it. If you buy the other one all your going to get is sloppy DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product!!! January 2, 2012
By Happy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to admit, I had an old VHS tape of the movie and was in search for a clear copy of the movie. Although I was quite skeptical about the possibility of me getting one of those VHS to DVD Rip versions but the risk was all worth it. Nice quality and audio sounded great. I have to admit, it was a great x-mas present for me. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must To Own ( If You Can Find It ) October 17, 2007
I saw Boulevard Nights in the late 80's, found it at my local movie rental place, rented it again several years later after that and to this day it still has that impact and feeling of what life was growing up in East Los back in the day.

The movie is down to the point, it does not get boring at all and me being a big chicano full of carnalismo vato, has to recommend this movie. Yeah you have the other titles like "American Me", "Bound By Honor" and "Mi Vida Loca", but this one is more like the early times before all that came into effect.

I'm still looking for this movie and at the same time waiting for it to be more readily available on DVD, I'll wait till then, but if you can find it, good luck.

A must see Vato.

3.0 out of 5 stars I keep thinking about what could have been .... June 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I knew that this film was not going to be Oscar caliber, but I was a little disappointed with the broad strokes the director allowed the Mexicans in the film to be painted with. We see them as outsiders, never delving into their souls and emotions. The Cholos are generic and they sound like "West Side Story" rejects. But the funny thing is that I liked this film. In the hands of a competant director, this material could have been a GREAT film, but as it is, it is just a fair film. The score is excellent, and I wish I could find it. If you have a copy of the soundtrack, let me know!

This is a very good movie! Practically a sad movie that make you wannna cry! But other than that this is the best movie! This movie "Boulevard Nights" was made before the movie Colors! Before the movie Blood in Blood out! Even before the movie Trianing Day! This movie is based on about the gangs called The Bloods and The crips! A young kid who is still dragged up in that streetlife routine! I remember this movie since I was about eleven or tweelve years old and i finally watch it! They need to remake this movie with different actors also! Gotta get this movie! It's all good! The Best!
