Playing smarter and smoother than the plot, Cisneros uncorks an antimacho performance that deviates from type.

Falling Awake isn't completely soporific, but it hardly inspires or enlightens.

Puts good intentions and appealing performances into the balance against cliches of dead-end neighborhoods and rebellious (but sensitive) youth.

Cisneros is an appealing actor, but he and Falling Awake get buried under a welter of clichés.

I'm all for telling generic stories about young artists rising above their lot in life, but for goodness sake, at least shoot it right.

One-named Cuban-born director Agustin's unrewarding middlebrow drama flaunts its street cred dubiously.

Casts a collection of illustrious no-names in a fatuous gangland epic of multicultural tensions between blacks and Puerto Ricans.
