    This is definitely a powerful and engrossing outing. Anybody unfamiliar with the all-too-real Juarez murders can skip the textbooks and learn a lot here. Well acted and beautifully shot.... but I was a bit annoyed by the overused burning-building-showdown.

    While this is not a great movie in terms of acting and such, this is a disturbing story. Is the emphasis on NAFTA overdone? I don't know, but the connection between unchecked capitalism and violence against women is pretty clear.

    I think that some of the criticism leveled at this movie and Jennifer Lopez is unfair. Whilst it is obvious that Jennifer Lopez may possess an ego, there are few Hollywood stars that wouldn't fall into the same category. The movie does portray her as trying to save the day but which movie doesn't have a similar theme. The fact that two Hispanic heavyweights like Jennifer Lopez and Antonio Banderas contributed to this film undeniably brings warranted focus onto the situation in Juarez. It is barbaric what is going on there and any extra publicity that can bring light to these issues to the public view is beneficial. I felt that Jennifer Lopez showed more acting ability in this then anything else I have seen her in and more than carried her weight in her leading role. Maya Zapata was impressive as Eva and hopefully she gets more opportunities in Hollywood. I would highly recommend this.

    Jennifer Lopez gives a superb performance. Very good, sad story. Some parts were a bit unnecessary and didn't work very well. But the movie was well worth watching.
