Rarely, if ever, do I rate a product five on content alone - but this was one of Screen Media's best efforts to date both on quality of DVD and of the film itself. Admittedly, I last saw the lead Manny Ramirez in Pride and Glory [Blu-ray], but as overlooked as this film will be, he gave an amazing and powerful performance.

The (supposedly based on true events) story follows a Dom. Rep. law enforcement officer as he treads the line of brutally enforcing the law while trying to accept what he has become through the years - all of which we see in development of this persona through the interpolation of flashbacks and present day events. The film making is flashy, at times maybe hard to follow, but all of it becomes so relevant as it both plays out and becomes clear as to why it is told in the fashion that it is. The performances, music score, style of production and lineage of story make this film a solid piece of entertainment - yet it holds a caliber of maintaining a semblance of professionalism to satisfy even the critical eye.

Disclaimers: this movie shows both brutal realism regarding animal cruelty (chicken and pig supporters will be in an uproar) and real-life South/North American drug enforcement politicism - so if you have sensitivity towards either - skip this film as they held nothing back. Several reviews out there have lambasted this piece for a variety of reasons (and in my opinion all without merit), so please give this one a chance for such simple reasons as DVD picture quality, acting performances and realism of content.

The DVD has Spanish subs only, with English built in - and that is it. Region 1 coded, but crystal clear on sound and picture. I will gladly buy your copy if you feel wronged because of my review.

EDIT: Changed the location to properly represent the country (per corrections in the comments section).

The fact that I choose this title is simple: is the first movie showing the crude reality of the situation who live everyday the Dominican Republic's people. The other movies made recently in the last 20 years show more fictional and historical situations, but this one is incredible. Good performances by Manny Perez & Denise Quiñones. Very well made. Watch It!

The movie was at times a bit slow. I kept waiting for it to get exciting but it never really grabbed my attention. If you have nothing to watch it will kill time.

I really enjoyed the movie, it has a little bit of everything. Crime, love, a little bit of sex and a little bit of comedy!

Quite informative about how curruption can help criminals to become untouchables and wealthy.
Everything looked so real. Kept me glued to the screen.

This is a pretty good movie considering the circumstances of filming in a third world country like the Dominican Republic. I lived there for several years and go back frequently to visit the beaches and see old friends. There are many sides to this country and one of them is graphically displayed in this film: Violence. No doubt about it, the DR (as most call it) is a violent place to be. The tourists that go there by the thousands encounter a sheltered life in the high class resorts that ring the island and see little or nothing of the underbelly of this country in the sun. The movie I believe exaggerates on many levels so one's acceptance that a rogue cop could be out there murdering suspects at night and being a butcher during the day is a stretch. Anyone thinking that this sort of thing goes on nowadays is wrong. It's just fiction. That said, there is plenty wrong with the police and the system of justice operating in the DR. Corruption is rife and hoodlum cops abound. So La Soga gets it right sort of however that a cop could murder bad guys in public and on TV and get away with it challenges the imagination. OK then...the film is engrossing, the acting a bit melodramatic and amateurish, the plot hackneyed, the cinema verite/documentary aspects work well, and the conclusion (a happy one) is unexpected given the run up to the ending. I liked it over all and knowing the DR as I do made it more fun to watch. The cover jacket of the DVD compares it to recent ground breaking Latin American films. Don't believe it. It is entertaining if you like to watch people shot in the head but it's no gritty "City of God." The camera work is good to excellent, the shot on location scenes work well, and you'll see a lot of Santiago slums if that's your thing.Read more ›
