Critic Reviews for Illegal Tender
An entertaining genre piece boasting a terrifically sinewy lead performance from Wanda De Jesus.
More care seems to have been taken with the cut of Gonzalez's sideburns than with the shape of the story, and the hyperbolic soundtrack does most of the work of the mise en scene.
What in God's name was going on with this movie?
For a film about growing up, Illegal Tender loses itself in a lot of silly juvenilia.
Plenty of movies have combined a blazing-guns revenge story with a family dynamics drama, but Illegal Tender never gets the mixture right, lurching between bullet-happy shootouts and overwrought domestic content.
Illegal Tender isn't quite the mess you expect this time of year, a film that achieves a certain level of originality by reversing gender roles.
Audience Reviews for Illegal Tender
Wilson Deleon Jr. (Rick Gonzalez) is the son of a slain drug dealer, whose killers still have every intention of wiping out the rest of the Deleon family 20 plus years later. After his family's location is discovered, Wilson is thrust into a situation in which he must leave his home and adoring girl friend and confront his assailants while learning more about the father he never knew. Wanda De Jesus plays the woman protecting her children who just happens to know how to shoot and will do anything to protect her children. It's finally time to take action and now, they're done running.
There are so many chances for Illegal Tender to get things right that it's depressing to realize that it misses all of them.
This movie was interesting...the time span...the past affecting the future...it's all here. Shows the importance of communication between the last generation and this generation regardless of whose in the wrong...family first!
