Movie Info

Filmed on a shoestring budget, the heavily plotted, direct-to-video Hispanic melodrama Murder on the Border interweaves the stories of Eduardo Martinez, a Latino defense attorney and U.S. resident, and Rick Scalo, a U.S./Mexican border patrol guard. The men's lives become hopelessly entangled after Martinez's Mexican family members, residing on the far side of the border, opt to cross illegally, and Scalo is charged with shooting dead an illegal Mexican immigrant boy. Assigned to defend Scalo, Martinez's case becomes a thousand times worse when the shifty officer attempts to extort an in-court victory from Martinez in exchange for his family's safe passage into the States. Sensing that the Martinez family may actually be threatened by Scalo and his nefarious friends, reporter Nivea Rodriguez comes to Eduardo's aid by warning everyone of the threats posed by Scalo. Gabriel Traversari and Alpha Acosta star.

Audience Reviews for Murder on the Border

Also known as "La Migra". The story follows an Arizona attorney who is trying to move his family from Mexico. However, his father is denied a visa because of his criminal record. So, illegal immigration is his only option. Complications arise. Decent low budget film. The acting is pretty good. Sincere and well meaning. Pleasant score.
