Editorial Reviews

"Rockaway" is the story of Trane (Nicholas Gonzalez), a decorated war hero just shipped back to the States after the brutal murder of his wife and child back home in Rockaway, Queens. Upon his return, Trane encounters his old friend Dave (Ricardo Chavira), who describes the new forces of crime and prostitution that have moved into their neighborhood and caused the destruction of his family. Replacing mourning with revenge, Trane vows to take down the network of lowlifes and mobsters involved in the murder of his family.

While on his search for answers, Trane goes head-to-head with neighborhood gangster Juju (Mario Cimarro) and his entourage of pimps and thugs led by the volatile Antwan (Manny Perez). Trane discovers his own sister, Cari (Delilah Cotto), deeply entangled in the web of a Russian mob gang led by the shrewd and vicious, Ivan (Oleg Taktarov). In order to carry out his revenge, Trane must walk the precarious path of crime and deception as he works his way, blow by blow, up the criminal food chain.

If you like Tarantino flicks, you ought to like this.
Elizabeth Renee Blue
Do not waste your time on this unless you like watching unrealistic scenes of bullets blasting huge chunks of human flesh.
Bradley F. Smith
Yes, it's a revenge story that's already been done, but what hasn't?

It's not for everyone but I was positively surprised by this little B movie star!!! You definitely must have a sense of humor (the movie doesn't even try to take itself seriously), a bit of twisted humor, and if on top of that you like irony and actually enjoy suspending your disbelief, I think you will love this is a great little jewel!!! If you like Tarantino flicks, you ought to like this. Its almost like homage to Tarantino. One of the badguys is "JuJu", a popular Latino t.v. actor who was the reason I watched this. His performance was truly enjoyable and everyone I recommended this movie too loved him, even if they weren't into the Tarantinoesque violence xploitation. Its a revenge fantasy about a soldier who goes to combat in Afghanistan and then brings "war" to the streets of Coney Island. The violence is transformed into almost graphic novelesque depictions, so it isn't "gore". It is, however, rampant throughout. Not for the faint of heart. But I laughed like crazy throughout this movie and the characters were able to get me to invest in them, even though they were also a joke on contemporary stereotypes. I thought this movie was sharp, intelligently done, artistic. That along with its low budget and a born to be B movie cult classic. So if you like Hollywood or consider yourself to be a cultural esthete, you probably will be offended. But if you like wacky stuff and like to try something new, I think you will like this movie alot. It is perfect to pop in on a late weekend night to unwind, on a regular basis. Keep it next to your copy of 'Evil Dead' collection and Reservoir Dogs.

Always on the lookout for foreign indies, I rented this movie first, then, after seeing it, I bought it. The quirky, ironic, downright surreal dialogues, especially those involving "bad guy" JuJu, kept me laughing. The bizarre humor is clearly intentional. This movie does not take itself too seriously, and often lovingly mocks the genre to which it is an homage. Some of the cinematography, the converstations between characters, and the graphic-novel-type violence reminded me of Tarantino's work. Yes, it's a revenge story that's already been done, but what hasn't? Yes, it is graphically violent, but in a rather Dali-esque way. The characters, and especially the performance by Mario Cimarro, the Cuban telenovela star known to many Latino viewers, who plays JuJu, elevate this B film to something special and well worth watching. More than once. Cimarro, as JuJu, is superb in his portrayal of a rather complex, yet oddly likable, even sensitive, bad guy.

If you're a Hollywood snob, this film might not be for you. But if you like quirky, ironic, cult-following-suseptible B movies, this one is for you. Definitely a worth watching more than once. And definitely worth owning.

As a rule I don't advocate violent movies but I have to make an exception with `Rockaway.' Not only will you be impressed with Mario Cimarro's acting but as the feared drug lord character JuJu he'll have you in stitches. As he gives orders to kill and in the same order tells his goons to be careful! Keep their eyes on the road and not touch any buttons in his car. You find yourself hoping he does a complete turn around and become one of the good guys.

The movie is packed with lots of actions as a soldier is send home from Pakistan after they give him the news that his wife had been murdered by the drug mafia. One by one and single-handedly the brave soldier takes them down.

I highly recommend this movie; you won't be sorry....

This appears to be an excuse to depict as many gross-out forms of shooting and stabbing human beings as is possible in 75 minutes. Dead bodies pile up in Rockaway NY but no cops seem to exist in this silly pulp action film with no plot other than a march to the death by an Afgahanistan vet bent on avenging his girlfriend's stabbing. He gets his eyeballs poked out with a sharp knife by one of the many bad guys, but barely bleeds, manages to walk away and then, later, to singlehandedly shoot everyone else dead while blind! Great concept. Do not waste your time on this unless you like watching unrealistic scenes of bullets blasting huge chunks of human flesh.
