The people that says this movie is bad is because they don't know about salsa music and they don't understand this movie, people belive that if it is a Latin American movie or something related is bad but is not this is a movie Latin Americans really enjoy

León Ichaso, el director de "Piñero", nos presenta un biopic acerca de la vida de Héctor Lavoe, una de las figuras clave en el surgimiento de la Salsa en los años 70. Jennifer Lopez interpreta a Puchi, la esposa del cantante, y a manera de flashback nos cuenta el ascenso y descenso de su esposo. La vida de Lavoe incluyó drogadicción, Sida, muertes prematuras e intentos de suicidio y es casi imposible en no caer en todos los lugares comunes de un biopic sobre un artista. Sin embargo, Ichaso logra mostrarnos algo del talento y el proceso artístico que volvió a Lavoe una leyenda de una manera tan efectiva que el espectador, así no guste de la Salsa quedará conmovido. Gracias al gran talento como actor de Marc Anthony, la película estalla en energía cuando el cantante hace lo que mejor sabe hacer.

Excelente película, recreó la cronología de la vida de Lavoe, con una performance profesional de tanto Marc Anthony, como de J-Lo. Todos conocemos el legado de "El Cantante", pero pocos saben las respuestas a los diferentes dilemas de su vida y qué realmente acabó con la vida del salsero, y aquí se dieron. Crónica documentaria mezclada con libretos y actuación. Atractiva y diferente forma de contar una historia.

Well they say there is always a strong woman behind a man and this woman was so weak that she destroyed a man. Trying to make it in America requires a cut throat attitude and a sensible mind and this movie proves that money can be made if you push the weak hard enough. Strongly acted with lots of sex and drugs adding to the ambiance. Nibbles: Puerto Rican rice pudding.

Standard-issue musician biopic with sex, drugs and...Salsa! Lopez overdoes it but is kinda charming in small doses.

Jennifer Lopez rules this movie. The only problem is that El Cantante is more about Puchi than Hector. But it´s really fine.

Si no fuera por la escena de "Aguanilà (C)" serí­a una pelí­cula sin nada que ofrecer

I can't believe this movie didn't get the credit that it deserves. Lopez & Anthony were great actors in this film. This movie is based on a true story that shaped American history and the birth of Salsa music!
