Audience Reviews for La Linea (The Line)


Andy garcia and Ray liotta two great actors with gangster experience so in this crime,drama, thriller, drug gangster movie its a making of a good movie: or so we thought !
This movie fails to impress miserably, its a waste of time, the action should be fun and yet boring, that backed up with the boring storyline in between just fails to engage the audience.
At times its really boring and slow and doesnt interest you enough to want to continue watching the movie! i lasted 40minutes before i had enough!

Film Crazy

Super Reviewer

A strong, stylish, gripping and thoroughly engaging film. A supremely entertaining crime thriller that's a twist-filled and action-packed ride. It keeps you entertained and guessing right to the end. A great story with compelling characters and a great cast supporting those roles. A slick, dark and edgy groove that's all it's own. A well-crafted and exceptionally performed movie with lots to offer. It's intriguing and heart-pounding with well-drawn characters in a strong story oriented flick that works. It delivers plenty of absorbing drama, sizzling action and great suspense. It's such an mesmerizing and explosive film. Andy Garcia is brilliant. Ray Liotta is terrific. Esai Morales is electrifying. Armand Assante and Gary Daniels give strong performances in their smaller roles.

I doubt anyone can follow this big mess without getting lost, even those who liked it. The plot is so confusing and disjointed, trying to complicate everything so much only to seem more complex than it actually is. Altogether, it is nothing but a dull waste of time.
