By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on February 4, 2002
Format: VHS Tape
This 1997 film, well directed by Gregory Nava, was the film that propelled Jennifer Lopez on to stardom. She is nothing short of sensational in this film. She is Selena!
The film recounts the brief life of Selena Quintanilla Perez (Jennifer Lopez), a life that was built around her father's broken dreams. Her father (Edward James Olmos) had himself had a band in his youth called "Los Dinos". Now a married man with children, his dreams have stalled along the wayside. When he realizes, however, that his young daughter has some musical talent, he builds a band around her, "Selena and Los Dinos", and begins living vicariously through her.
Under the watchful eye of her martinet father, years of forced, musical practices and life on the road follow. Loving, possessive, and controlling, he succeeds in almost losing her, when she marries her guitarist without her father's permission. They reconcile, however, and he places Selena on the path to stardom, a tejano sensation on the cusp of becoming a crossover musical star. Unfortunately, her path crosses that of a fan, Yolanda Saldivar, whom Selena befriends, only to have her be the one who cuts her down in her prime.
Jennifer Lopez is sensational as Selena, big booty and all. She charms. She beguiles. She entertains. She is every inch the star. This has been her best role, and her performance is stellar. She should have won an award for her performance, because she most certainly deserved one for her portrayal of Selena. It is unfortunate that her acting career has been downhill ever since.
Edward James Olmos is perfect as Abraham Quintanilla, the father who pushed his daughter to heights that he had dreamed for himself but had been unable to reach. His performance is powerful and rich.

First off, I would just like to say that the movie was a box-office success, I have no Idea were people get the idea that it wasnt!
Well, now that that is out of the way, "Selena" was an incredible piece of work! From the very beginning where her last Houston concert was re-created I could tell that Jennifer Lopez did the best, she acts so much like the real Selena, it really amazed me!
The films major pluses are the fact that her killer is not in it that much, becuase the film has to do with her life, and not about a killer that everyone would rather forget existed. Secondly, the fact that the movie did not go into what happened after Selena died, when a movie comes out about the life of a legend, it should stick to her life and not to what happened after she died.
The DVD version is great aside from the GREAT AUDIO and PICTURE , "Selena" comes in both Pan and Scan and Widescreen formats which is great for me cuase I really like alternating. And the Menus make it more enjoyable and interesting.
"Selena" was a remarkable film! Although I do think that the fans that knew her in life will relate to it more, It will touch everyones hearts if they see it for what it really is: A loving and humble tribute to Selena and her fans.(See the ending to see what Im talking about)

I agree completely with an earlier reviewer who stated that most of the reviews for this film are "emotionally-charged" fan reviews. Selena touched many lives and her tragic death has given anything dealing with her life and her music a sense of reverence and has been created with careful craftsmanship. The film about her life is no different.

Whether or not the movie fails depends upon your expectations walking in. If you're looking for a thematically solid film with good performances and a fresh story about the American Dream, "Selena" will not disappoint. However if your aim to to learn the true life story of Selena Quintanilla-Perez and her struggles to the top of Tejano music (both personally and professionally), you will be profoundly let down by this biopic.

This film was made with Selena's death still fresh in the minds of the family and artists involved, and great care was taken to portray her and her family in the most positive of lights. Besides the failure of the family's Mexican restaurant in the early 80's, none of their struggles with fame, the music business, and each other are fully examined. Selena's relationship with her father wasn't as rosey as they show it: she oftentimes resented her early role as the family bread-winner and disagreed with her father's ideas about her life and career track. This was the reason behind her dependence upon her eventual murderer, Yolanda Saldivar. Her relationship with Saldavar is also completely glossed over.

The reasoning behind what was shown and what wasn't is obvious. Nobody came into the project intending to make a gritty film about the rise and murder of a superstar, it was meant to be a gentle remembrance dedicated to the memory of a fallen daughter. With that in mind, the film accomplishes what it set out to. If you're interested in truly learning more about Selena's life I insist upon reading Nick Patrosky's biography on her or watching less biased fare such as Behind the Music.

First, I was skeptical about Jennifer Lopez's big-screen debut as the slain Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla. The movie was heartfelt, realistic (Selena did come to life!) and I loved all the characters, especially Abraham Quintanilla (Edward James Olmos), Marcela (Constance Marie) and Chris (Jon Seda), who all contributed to bringing Selena's spirit and music to life. I also give huge props to the Young Selena (Rebecca Lee Meza). The film had me in tears at the end and the storyline was sentimental and sweet, not trashy. A very well-produced, great movie! I don't care if people though that because Jennifer Lopez was Puerto Rican, she shouldn't have been playing a person of Mexican lineage, but she did a wonderful job to bring Selena's music and spirit back to life! I like the fact that Selena's father Abraham was the executive producer of the movie so he could be positive to sustain the dignity and memory of Selena. Viviras Selena!
