Editorial Reviews

From acclaimed producer John Singleton (Hustle & Flow, Four Brothers) comes an intense, action-packed thriller about a family's quest for honor and revenge. College student Wilson De Leon, Jr. (Rick Gonzalez, Coach Carter, TV's Reaper) never stood up for himself until the gangsters who killed his father came to settle a score. In a gripping, adrenaline-pumping showdown, Wilson and his mother (Wanda De Jesus, TV's CSI: Miami) decide to settle that score on their own terms in order to protect the people they love. Dania Ramirez (TV's Heroes, X-Men) and reggaeton star Tego Calderon co-star in this hard-hitting film loaded with gripping action and unbeatable suspense.

    "Illegal Tender" is a very well put together, written, directed
    and acted movie!---Point Blank!!--Period!!
    It is about family coming together, it's about protecting the ones you hold dear, it's about the the young-headz
    respecting the struggles of the ones who came before them,
    all wrapped within this urban gangster thriller from a
    modern latino perspective. ----I LOVE THIS FILM!!----
    Wanda DeJesus, Rick Gonzalez, Manny Perez, Tego Caulderon all
    pull it off with gusto and made me believe it and get
    into the characters 100%!!
    Rick Gonzalez is one to watch y'all!!--The man's going
    places, and he isn't bad on the eyes either!
    All-n-All, money well spent and I would recommend this DVD
    to anyone who likes good action and drama.--Buy It!!

    This movie is amazing! I couldnt stop watching it...I watched it like 3 times in a row. It's raw, real and touching all at the same time. I like it because it's not brutal and hardcore to the point where you're disgusted. I absolutely loved it!

    Illegal tender should have been released on the big screen. If you like it you should also view "Slow Burn". Illegal Tender is a blend on "Miami Vice" and "Heat". I watched it on OnDemand from home and was looking for the sound track when I wrote this review of the movie. Get this movie and "Slow Burn"

    I saw this movie many years ago and loved it even back then. I did not know it was available on either VHS or DVD. I was browsing Amazon one day recently and found it listed. I love action movies, especially when the hero is a stong and forceful female. The lady in this flick is both beautiful, intelligent, caring, and knows how to protect herself. Don't screw around with this lady, particularly when it comes to her family. If you like action, suspense, and revenge check it out.

    "Illegal Tender" was one of those movies I ran into while flipping through cable channel (back in 2011). What little I saw interested me to the degree that I made an immediate purchase! Personally, I found that the story (while not new), still had an unique presentation - simply due to the cast, troopers all! For something a little different, may I recommend "Illegal Tender"?

    I rate this movie...Four stars!

    I love this movie. It came on time, in good condition and had scenes I didn't see on t.v. I guess they wanted to save time so they shortened it. So besides all the inappropriate displays of women-_- its a pretty good movie sooooo get it^.^
