On my personal rating scale of with "5" being drop everything and see the movie now; if you're female, bear the producers' children and "0" being burn down the theater, murder the movie staff, and violate their dog, this movie earns a "3.75," using my Patented Bell Curve for Independent Films. BARRIO BRAWLER comes off as a very credible film, a morality play with the "Good vs Evil" lines clearly drawn, a lot of believable action, with a story and locale that will connect and will be very-well received by its target demographic.
The film is unrated, but is very violent, has some gore, and laced with coarse street language. But with its solid, easily-identifiable characters, a solid, albeit fast-paced story, this reviewer is calling this a "BUY," as the action scenes you'll want to see over and over again. If you are a fan of martial arts action films, this will be one you should not miss.
