Talento de Barrio Reviews

October 10, 2008
As blatant vehicles for rising rappers go, Talento de barrio won't do much to help Puerto Rican hip-hopper Daddy Yankee.
October 10, 2008
It's not edgy or tight enough for all its grit and vitality to overcome the familiarity of its material to satisfy more demanding viewers.

Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee holds his own in his big-screen acting debut, Talento de Barrio. Too bad he's saddled with a generic script, based loosely on his own life.

The violence-laden story, such as it is, is ineptly stitched together; it's unclear who is shooting at whom and why; and the dialogue seldom advances beyond "Yo, dog" and "Whassup?" The soundtrack is the only draw here.

A vile, stupid, violent-crime drama that would be laughable if its content weren't so toxic.

Just as reggaetón is a fusion of hip-hop, reggae and traditional Puerto Rican rhythms, Talento de Barrio is also a mixture, albeit a woefully derivative one, of 8 Mile, Menace II Society and Carlito's Way.
