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 dont. 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.

Undocumented IFC Midnight Not Rated 2010 DVD

The title and subject sound like a Greenberg documentary about the plight of illegal immigrants. Perhaps if you combined Greenberg and “Hostel” you’d end up with something like this. It is not a documentary but a piece of fiction.
A crew of college students are making a documentary film about illegal immigrants from Mexico and with the help of some Mexican friends, travel across the border, interview some common people there and then contract with a coyote to smuggle them across the border along with a busload of Mexican immigrants. From there, things go downhill.
Their bus is stopped, not by the border patrol but by a violent right-wing group of vigilantes determined to stop the flow of immigrants through terror. Funny how all the illegal immigrants are such good-looking and naturally friendly people as opposed to sadistic Americans. Well, a somewhat expected story proceeds: beatings, torture, killings, slavery. Since there were two quite good-looking women among the lead characters I wondered if they were going to depict a rape, but that is only alluded to. About halfway through I felt the violence factor outweighed any merits the film might have and I just wanted to get to the end-line: did any of them live? Escape? What happens to the vigilantes? In case someone actually wants to watch this, I won’t reveal those major type plot spoilers. I can say this movie did not revel in graphic blood and dismemberment the way some slasher-horror films do. It manages to portray the essence of horrible situations without harming any actors. Nevertheless I can’t recommend this film journey. It’s far from a sober documentary on the problem of illegal immigration and as a horror movie well, perhaps it’s too real for that as well. Failing to fall soundly in either category it may disappoint fans of both.

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...

Awesome movie. Great suspense build up with lots of good gore throughout the flick. Kept me on my toes and clenched the whole time. Intense. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Good movie. May offend some, but this movie is a work of fiction. I am writing this review to also point out that this movie is NOT a found footage film. This has been the impression of other reviewers, which is incorrect. Without giving the story away, there are may instances where there are no cameras whatsoever (no one is recording the scenes). Ergo, this movie cannot be considered a found footage film, since every part of it is not being recorded. Additionally found footage movies have a disclaimer in the beginning and end about the discovered footage. None exists here. Also the production values of this movie are far better than most found footage films.

The patriotic nut-job 'freedom-fighters' remind me of the Christian Trump-supporters for the 2016 POTUS campaign.

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 ›
