Eva Longoria gives one of her most authentic performances as the strong and loving Gloria. Ross brings a wounded intensity to his character. Chavarria's narration is a tad low key, but his performance is natural and effective.
There's an earnestness and a fundamental truth to this familial saga-as well as an appealing, low-budget scrappiness-that consistently make it hum.
A well-intentioned but superficial story about a deep-rooted Hispanic subculture.
Mexican-American culture isn't merely draped over the story as an added element but woven throughout with a casual practicality that respects both the primary characters and their shot-on-location East L.A. setting.
Excels in its depiction of the Los Angeles of 2017... a fascinating cultural exposure, but lacks a truly impactful story.
It's dispiriting to watch "Lowriders" make every predictable move. It clutters an otherwise well-meaning snapshot of a vibrant community underserved by mainstream filmmaking.
Lowriders has a lot of thoughtful parts that don't quite mesh into a coherent whole.
Lowriders exudes passion from the cast and everyone involved, and the final result is a passion project that is both poignant and socially relevant despite its many flaws.
A car-lovers picture with fine performances and teachable moments mixed in with a lot of melodrama.
An earnest and well-acted character drama about family, conflicts, and common ground.
...waiting for cable or on-demand won't likely affect anyone's enjoyment that much.
It's admirable that this film depicts a culture that's tragically under-represented on the big screen, but the movie is so overwritten and simplistic that it almost comes across as condescending.
