An entertaining genre piece boasting a terrifically sinewy lead performance from Wanda De Jesus.

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.

The real mystery here is why this slapdash semi-effort didn't go straight to video.

While Illegal Tender has misguided pretensions towards Serious Filmmaking, it's surprisingly likeable if you see it instead as a cheesy thriller good for a lazy Friday night.
