El Chicano (2019, W: Carnahan, W/D: Hernandez Bray) S: Raúl Castillo





Our streets. Our fight. Our hero. Watch the official trailer for El Chicano now. See the film starring Raúl Castillo and George Lopez in theaters May 3.

When L.A.P.D. Detective Diego Hernandez is assigned a career-making case investigating a vicious cartel, he uncovers links to his brother’s supposed suicide and a turf battle that’s about to swallow his neighborhood. Torn between playing by the book and seeking justice, he resurrects the masked street legend El Chicano. Now, out to take down his childhood buddy turned gang boss, he sets off a bloody war to defend his city and avenge his brother’s murder.

Shit, I'd been following Joe Carnahan's updates on this and I can tell he and his team made the right choices by not re-casting with known or white actors to get more money from major studios. They went indie but that level of violence is straight up Punisher style and looks great.

Cool fact, I have a couple of daggers and tomahawks made out of that same material like the one El Chicano has. The blades are made out of obsidian.

Too bad they couldn't get Ben Affleck for the lead.

I was rooting for Emma Stone.

Got my tickets for Friday night. No premium theater showings, though. Just straight up digital at my AMC.

I had to push my schedule up a bit and just got back from this. It's well acted and directed. The script is more than capable. The film only opened in 600 theaters, but if it's in your area then I would recommend it. The violence is Punisher level it was shot locally, as well. Finally a badass superhero that "looks like me."
