El Cantante Reviews

  • Jun 09, 2019

    Excellent!!! Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony deliver their greatest dramatic performances thus far. El Cantante is intense and profoundly moving with powerful scenes of of Anthony emboding the Puerto Rican singer - enormously talented, yet equally troubled Hecto Lavoe. His wife Pucci (Lopez) is strongly devoted to Hector although he puts her through hell most of their marriage, despite this - her love and loyalty gets her & Hector through a marriage plauged by extremely difficult times. Overall this an absolutely wonderful bio-pic

    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.

    Excellent movie Jennifer and Marc really showcase their acting abilities!! The music is amazing aswell defintly recommend it! Especially to all the Puerto Ricans out there! Oscar-Worthy movie! J.Lo did an incredibly amazing job as the feisty and fierce Nilda "Puchi" Roman and Marc did an excellent job as the salsa legend Hector Lavoe!!

    it was an ok movie. its one of those movies the singer faces problems with drugs, alcohol, family, wife, friends, then he dies. j-lo is soo sexy in this movie. but its a true story of how salsa the music was born.
