Editorial Reviews

There are estimates that over a million people attempt to cross illegally from Mexico to the United States every year - some succeed, some don't. Aspiring director Travis (Scott Mechlowicz) and his crew make the journey themselves in order to chronicle the phenomenon of undocumented immigration, but after crossing the border seemingly unnoticed they encounter a band of violent right-wing radicals determined to carry out the sort of 'justice' that the legal system cannot. Writer-director Chris Peckover makes a powerful debut with Undocumented, a grueling exercise in human cruelty that blends biting social commentary with grim violence for an unforgettable experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Weak February 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is not for the weak in heart and stomach. The contents within this movie may have already happen, and leads to the question: Has this type of rebellion against immigration occur or is there the possibility? Hmmm...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 March 16, 2014
Format:DVD
This film really surprised me, because I usually hate these found footage films. Aside from the nausea, caused by the constant movement of the camera, I find that these films not only lack a budget, but also a decent story and cast. Undocumented was different though, as it was a novel idea with some fairly stable camera work. The story focuses on a group of college kids, making a documentary about illegal aliens, and how they cross into the United States. The group join a coyote for a run across the boarder when they are unexpectedly capture. Unfortunately for them, their captors aren't the police, but rather a group of self-proclaimed patriots, who abuse the illegal immigrants for their sick pleasure. We see a lot of films about how and why people cross the boarder and even a lot about what the police and government are doing about it, but I can't ever remember seeing a film about these vigilante groups, that do exist, and pray on illegals. Prison Break's Pete Stormare stars as Z, the leader of the rebel group and he basically makes the movie. This guy usually plays a gangster or inmate in the background of some random film or TV show, but he's never really the star, and it's a shame because he makes this movie. Z is such a deep character, who is brilliant yet deranged at the same time, a man who is as compassionate as he is brutal, it was really something to see. He's paired with a young cast of teen actors, who have been around for years, and who do a terrific job in support of his performance. This film isn't listed as a horror film, but it is pretty brutal and bloody, meaning you shouldn't watch it if you have a weak stomach. For me, it was an interesting take on an aspect of immigration that is rarely seen or talked about. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Movie... Tired Genre April 25, 2012
Format:DVD
Please let me begin by saying that I wish the entire "found footage" genre (along with 3-D) would be treated like fine china... Use it on special occasions, but otherwise keep it out of sight.

I had read several good reviews about Undocumented so I decided to check it out. From the start, I'd have to say the acting was decent. Some of it coming across a little bit forced, but good. The story line is was got me interested in the first place, by now I assume you know what it's about so I wont mull over plot details here, and it was pretty solid. The downfall of this movie, and the reason for the 2 star review, is the movie, very quickly, gets caught up in the trappings of it's genre. Much like PA3, there were several times I actually said out loud, "Just drop the camera!" This happens way to much in the found footage genre. You've committed yourself the gimmick, but at some point it just makes your characters look stupid... "My life is in danger, I'm going to die, but I have to get this shot?!" No, sorry. In most cases, we are talking about ordinary people put into extraordinary situations. Situations in which any level headed person would drop the camera and run for their life. It's just so... tired.

The worst part of the film though, comes with only a few minutes left. The movie is about an hour and a half long. For the first hour and twenty-five minutes it's a found footage film. Then, with five minutes left, when it can no longer make use of it's own genre, it just switches up to a regular movie. The characters leave the camera behind, yet we still see everything that's going on! Again, they fell into the trappings of the genre of film... until it just stopped working... then they just said, "Screw it!"

If this movie were a straight forward thriller, keeping all the plot lines and actors in tact, I'd give it 4 stars. As is, 2 stars. And that's only because I really like some of the actors in it, otherwise meh.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Horror Gem! January 6, 2013
Format:DVD
Picked randomly from the Pay-Per-View menu, UNDOCUMENTED is my surprise find of the year. I hesitate to call it my pleasant surprise, because while the discovery of a true horror gem flying under the radar can really warm my cockles, once the action here gets rollin', I was feeling more cold chills than warm fuzzies.

What starts off as a fairly routine shot-on-video, found footage movie quickly turns into a visceral and all-too-believable nightmare of American patriotism run amok. Our heroes and the immigrants they were following have been captured by a group of extreme nationalists who are looking to save our country by cleansing of the scourge that's ruining it. In other words, undocumented Mexicans sneaking over the border.

What really drove this home for me was how possible every horrific image or idea you're subjected is. As a country, we seem to have lost our minds on this subject. The inhuman acts going on right now in Arizona are not that far off from what's happening at the abandoned slaughterhouse in the movie. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if something like is actually was going on...right now. Our villains here are not raving madmen. On the contrary, they are well spoken....charming, even...guys you'd probably love to have a beer with sometime in other circumstances. These men spill poison from their mouths, calmly. Rationally. Indeed, there might be a nugget of truth to it; a truth twisted into something hideous, but truth nonetheless. And part of me started to believe it. Just a little....teeny....tiny...bit.

Therein lies the horror.
