I have to say this movie was great from beginning to end. Daddy Yankee did an impeccable job in this movie. The character Edgar Dinero in which Daddy Yankee portrays is about a young man who has this incredible talent being a reggaeton rapper but at the same time does not know how to leave the streets, for he feel is his only survival. Entangled in a violent underworld, Dinero falls in love with a girl who brings him positivity. He knows he has to make a choice before losing the one person that is important to him. Anyway, this is a movie that everyone should go see. I just hope there is a second part to this movie.

I've been an on again-off again DY fan for a few years now and waited a long time to see this movie because, like many others, I was skeptical. I actually found a bootleg feed of the Talento de Barrio on the internet and enjoyed it so much, I purchased the DVD to re-enjoy the movie with better picture and sound. I think it is a mistake to dismiss this movie as unimportant simply because it stars a "teen-idol" reggaeton star. It's not often that people who are not from PR get to see "that side" of Puerto Rico in the media. The photography is reminiscent of the Dominican Republic footage in Michael Mann's Miami Vice (2006) and very real. I also think the dialog and acting are very good, very authentic (Yes, DY's performance in this movie is quite good). We, die-hard reggaeton/Puerto Rican hip hop, fans are used to hearing the common slang and idiomatic expressions set the music but rarely do we hear how those dudes speak when they're just hangin' out in their hoods--the linguistic patters, body language, the style of dress, etc. Bottom line is that there aren't many genuine Puerto Rican movies that make it to the mainstream and if you want to know how the other half live in PR, here's your chance. By the way, the film does address themes of drugs, violence, sex, etc. so don't get it for your children unless you are planning on sitting down with them and explaining what they are seeing.

What a thrilling roller coaster of a film. A tale of lust, passion and the quest for musical glory! One follows the path of a young Edgar Dinero and his rag tag crew of mates who spend the better part of their day dealing crack, racing cars and oogling at the backsides of young ladies in their San Juan ghetto.

Edgar Dinero ascends to reggaeton stardom through the help of one masterful mentor Julio Voltio.

And there was much rejoicing (and oogling at womens' backsides)

Ok, I am not a Daddy Yankee fan (though he is very cute) but I still desired to see this film, as I try to catch as many films made for Puerto Rican cinema as possible. The movie was much better than expected. Its main character, Daddy Yankee, portrays Dinero a head drug dealer in a caserio. Dinero is a thug (to the full sense of the word) with heart (not unlike some young kids who get sucked into the world of easy money.) Dinero is loyal and is thus surrounded by many loyal friends but he offers a job to one who will become his, and his squads traitor- this is where the drama ensues and becomes beyond negative, violence begetting violence. In the mix of all of this- is Dinero's plan to get out of the street way of life- Reggaeton.

Overall, I would say that this is a good film, though intertwined with alot of negativity and a little too much ghettoness (real word?.)
