- Don’t waste your time1 star

No good, very bad and ugly!

- Mediocre1 star

The film is choppy and rushed without a smooth lead into compelling plot. I’m not sure what else to say—this film is mediocre at best. Not something I’d watch again.

- Ugh1 star

A series of senseless violence and murder scenes; that is the movie!

- Worst Movie Ever1 star

It’s so bad they should pay you to watch it as a form of torture.

- Not bad5 star

I had very low expectations about this movie going into it. The story was pretty believable and the characters were pretty spot on. Without spoiling the movie Shia deserves the credit he deserves. I’m not a fan of his but he was definitely impressive here. Hope to see more of him as he sold me on liking him in this film. Take a chance on this movie you won’t regret it.

- Best movie5 star

Saw this movie today in it really good I love it If you Latino you know what up 👍🏽

- Leaves alot to be desired3 star

Gonna say the same thing i told my friends after i watched the wasn’t good but it wasn’t terrible either. The movie had alot of potential,good story,decent cast the whole 9 but it just came off as a rushed movie. Where it fell flat the most in my opinion was Shia LaBeouf’s character. He did surprisingly well in his role BUT i feel like producers did the character a disservice by rushing the movie and only letting it be a hour and a half. Think about a VERY watered down version of Alejandro from sicario. The entire movie just felt flat. Just imagine eating a good meal and thinkin “man this could’ve been great if they cooked it a bit longer and added a pinch of salt”

- The previews were fun, but the movie is horrible1 star

I regret buying this movie. I just watched this movie and felt like I was in Adult Detention. The characters in the movie are all bark, but no bite. Everything in the movie is predictable. I really thought this was going to be a good movie. While I was watching it all I could think is this is going to win the Razzie awards. Watch this movie if someone gives you a dare. WWF wrestling has better acting than this movie.

- Great movie5 star

Finally a movie a like from beginning to end a lot of action enjoyed this one

- Should have rented2 star

Not my type of movie really the plot was very thin though I’d have to say not many of the actors did a bad job but not sure if this was a strong suit

- Made no sense1 star

First half was pretty good. Second half felt like it was written by someone else and didn’t make sense. Don't waste your time. Worst “Cartel” movie ever.

- Gross representation of our people3 star

Perpetuates the stereotype that all Mexicanos are murderous drug dealers...not a single redeeming character in that whole movie...

- Movie reviews3 star

It’s an okay movie

- Deceived3 star

Interesting, twisted view of interaction with God. Had very satanic scene with human sacrifice, disgusting. Good acting and action posturing scenes.

- Don’t worry about the reviews5 star

I went into this thinking the worst, and it was actually a good movie. I wouldn’t t worry about the the negative views, just read the plot and if ya like it then go with it. From one normal person to another, just give it a go.&

- Not a bad story4 star

When I watch movies like this its really to be entertained. That being said, this movie completed that task. The story was interesting and the plot was pretty good, there were a few things that could of been done better, but its an action hood flick 🤷🏾‍♂️. If you are looking for mindless action, entertainment, and a crazy plot twist...give it a shot. 👍🏾

- Thriller!5 star

I was intrigued!

- Tax collector5 star

Good movie. The game is to be sold not told.

- What a waste of an opportunity to make a great movie1 star

Weak weak weak. Not what I was expecting. The characters advertised that motivated me to watch, turned out to be the weak victims. I was expecting the hit men from Breaking bad or grit of Sicario but nope. Just boring, lack of story, lack of excitement, lack of drama, lack of character toughness. Bummer....

- Well done5 star

Nicely done. Great movie

- GREAT not GOOD5 star

I LOVE SHIA in this movie. Action packed!

- Maybe rent but don’t buy2 star

I made the mistake of buying this movie because I loved Harsh Times and End of Watch. This movie is similar but yet so far from them. Tax collector is like the redhead step child, or it’s the The Godfather 3 of the bunch, so sad it was poorly written. I’m not a big Shia LaBeouf fan but he was the only bright spot in the movie.

- Action Scenes: OK; Acting: Subpar2 star

I’d wait until this comes to HBO. The few action scenes are good, but the acting is amateur at best and the storyline is weak.

- Even the trailer looks bad.1 star

After reading the reviews I’d say I made the right choice skipping out on this movie. Better wait until this gets on Netflix or Hulu.

- Horrific - Violent1 star

This movie was horrific, real and violent and exemplifies all that is wrong with society today. We sensationalize violence to the point where movies like this are, 'just ok.' Nowhere in the process of developing this movie did anyone ask themselves, "Maybe we should not bring such violence to the public." This movie is not ok. It is not entertainment. It is disgusting.

- I F’n love it5 star

Wish it was longer! But I love it

- Was this a prank? This was a prank - right?1 star

I waited all night for the door bell to ring with some sort of candid camera prize for having to sit through this! Shia, do I need to say anything else? I only watched it/him as Covid has exhausted all other content! Bobby Soto was portraying a gangster, really? My little girl’s pinky toe acts tougher. Was the wife in the life, was she not, did she know counting the money that it was from drugs omg, didn’t she know, oh-she worked in an office...? Flashback montages, is this 1988? So stupid. Mr. Ayer has exhausted his concept of LA Latin culture and needs to move on. Maybe he should try Beverly Hills shopping woes as a subject matter.... I wish I could get my money back! What a total joke. At least writing this review was enjoyable.

- Hyped with no substance.1 star

Paid 8$ to rent thinking this was an action movie and an immersive view onto a subculture I could only fantasize about. Instead, this is a rough cut of the notebook. A romantic twist on your skinny boyfriend who sells weed, doesn’t own a gun, never been in a fight but you think he’s a kingpin and you feel safe around him.

- Beautiful5 star

Great movie

- Great Movie5 star

This movie was better than I expected. Good story line

- Pfffff2 star

Just...just not good. Bad acting, had a couple scenes of good action. Really wanted to like it but couldn’t wait till it was over. Two stars bc I’m nice.

- 11111115 star

the message was clear in that movie good production already know who are the mere mere Mexicans

- Nope!1 star

Don’t waste one penny on this. I’m easily entertained and this is extremely boring and a major let down!

- Trash2 star


- Disappointed2 star

I had high expectations for this film from the trailer that was released. The build up of the movie was great but after the big shooting scene I wasn’t satisfied with the film. Could’ve ended way better and could’ve done a better job of the filming with the main character as well horrible acting!

- Eh4 star

Picked up in the middle. Didn’t care for the beginning or the end. The main actor wasn’t compelling. Could’ve been much better. Maybe a directors cut.

- Can this kid just go away1 star


- Not good, not bad...2 star

The storyline is good, the director’s execution is bad, Shia is not believable as the Creeper character, maybe he was doing the director a favor for the movie but he should have hard passed on this.

- Must See!4 star

I really liked this movie! It’s bloody for sure👍. I liked the story line and of course it was well written. Soto, Lopez, Shia were solid in this movie. I really liked Shias character.

- Not worth it1 star

Do not waste your money!

- Misleading...1 star

All the trailers for this movie advertised that Shia LaBeouf was going to be in the majority of the movie but he wasn’t... I feel like they used him to sell this movie and it was a real let down... the acting sucked really bad from all characters except Labeof’s... I do not recommend buying this movie...

- It was ok!3 star

Could of used more action more chaos it was really rushed not enough of Shia I wanted to see him be unleashed!! But it’s a ok movie to pass the time!! I loved Shias character he’s still so sexy and crazy!!

- Waste of money1 star


- Really good movie4 star

For those that lived and been surrounded by this lifestyle, this movie reminds me of the classic movies like Blood In, Blood Out & American Me...The only complaint is the main actor. It would have been great if the leading role would have more of not only an intimidating presence but also a more deep and gritty voice. As for Shia LeBouf, he definitively had an outstanding performance as a supporting role playing cholo!

- Really Grewat Film5 star

We have all seen or heard the rumors of what I assume is the Mexican Mafia and their control of the prison system and the tenticles that reach beyond the walls. This movie rapidly describes what it is or might actually be like with brutal class. Its brilliant in its descriptive content, and outcome. The loyalty of family and honor comes shining through, with an ever present sledgehammer of family love. I liked that the main character rose up to save his family above his family. You have to watch to understand. Its worth the rental price! GO FOR IT!

- A total loss of two hours1 star

What did I just watch!?

- Love this movie!5 star

I totally, didn’t expect Shia to play a roll like this. He did an awesome job.

- Creeper 😍5 star

...even if he wasn’t the main character. Still a good movie.

- Extremely violent5 star

If you want to be entertained, and see an extremely violent movie, this is the one for you. If not, you won’t like this. Anyone voting this movie poorly based on Shia acting like he was Latino is ridiculous.

- Very entertaining...4 star

Can’t understand the bad reviews. It’s an entertaining movie with a good portrait of LA latin suburbia and the criminality within. Shia’s acting is great.

ZacRHernandez - Rent before buying.1 star

This film is FILLED with Plot holes. Throughout the whole movie David Ayers keeps you wondering what is actually going on. Shia SHINES of course. But the writing and acting were sub par. This film felt rushed and poorly edited. There is much needed character development for this film. I’m glad i rented.

MrHeHateMe - Dope Movie5 star

Sold Chicano Gangster flick!!! Best Shia LaBeouf performance ever!

Kris10dr - Bad version of Sicario3 star

Not a bad movie but also not a great movie. Wanted more Shia in it and not the boring main character. Still worth the one watch.

Low End Thump - Brutal watch2 star

Expected more considering how good end of watch was.

Rtcnai - Promising start but ...2 star

It felt short right in the middle. Shia’s promising role also felt short. Story builds good and just unfolds in a few minutes. Everything becomes easily predictable. Had high hopes ...

xKoAx Tucker - 💯💯DON’T READ THIS **spoilers** PLEASE READ THIS💯💯5 star

The biggest mistake in this entire movie (it is perfection) except for when Shia (Creeper) is killed..... completely ruined an opportunity for a sequel........ (lets be honest, the main mexican gangster actor person is not really good.. his performance was pennies in comparison to Shia.) This will probably always be a movie I wish they would have made a sequel out of... idk Shia should have been THEEE MAIN ACTOR!!!! WHY DID HE HAVE TO DIE!!?!?!?? SHIA please make another movie like this, please... for the love of God I need another movie like this where homeboy doesn’t die.....

elisewinters - Waste of money1 star

This was the worst movie I think I’ve ever watched. The acting was terrible, down to the casting. I mean George Lopez as a gangster? Really? Just a terrible movie, I ended it before it was even over. I should sue Apple for my $7 back.

kattalas - It should have been longer!2 star

The movie seemed too rushed, creeper needed a bigger role, I would rent and not buy it!

aracova20 - Heart pounding story line5 star

Love how Family is David’s main priority. Could have loved a different ending, but this isn’t a fairy tale...

Sickness13 - good good5 star

it needed more action scenes but still good...

Mrsbrat06 - Terrible movie1 star

This movie was wack maybe if COVID wasn’t happening it could have been good, They would have had a more thought movie 👎🏽👎🏽

dotst3r - Worth every dollar5 star

South central Los Angels represent! I wonder where all the one star ⭐️ are from. I can assure you that emotions will be all over the place. It’s very easy to understand the plot of the story.

Vergonsonte - It was actually great5 star

Great performance by all actors , my boy Shia LaBeouf did a great performance I really thought he was raza

Shoppingfairy - Rent or buy?5 star

I rented this and loved it. Thinking about buying it because I loved it so much. I think both actors did a great job. I would love to see more LA gangster movies like this. Shia did an amazing job! I’ve never seen him in a role like this and just wow! I think we all forget the talent this man has. And with that said, I think I just talked myself into buying it lol.

chapin101 - Good movie5 star

Wish Shia did more action in the movie

Sedar J - Bad1 star

Really Bad Movie Cast, play, nothing coherent in this movie. Overplay the ganster or gansta caracter I’ve got u ... 😂

Hit Squad - Awesome movie!5 star

This is a good entertaining movie. A lot of stuff i didn't see coming!!!

Jdavisii - Waste1 star

Advertised as an action / gang movie never pays off all of the action is in the trailer . Weak movie with lame story

RomeoJaymez - Totally Gangsta! 😎5 star

This movie was better than I expected. Buy it, you won’t be disappointed!

kYzA s0zE? - Great story poorly executed2 star

The movie was very promising in its trailer. The theme of the movie had good potential but the puzzle pieces seemed forced in place. Shia Lebeouf’s character Creeper seemed like a good role and I was excited to see him act however, well I don’t want to give away spoilers. It’s good for a Friday night manly movie night but not for Saturday night blockbuster movie nights.

Kristena18 - Good Actually😂4 star

TBH I reall started to watch it because I found out Lana Parrilla was going to be in the movie. But it turned out to be a good movie.

cinecat - Disappointing1 star

Had expectations like "Sicario" or something. First half is like a documentary "a day in the life of a tax collector". The second half is...some mafia/gang action. I don't want to spoil anybody but...see yourselves.

CJFilipponi - Ugh1 star

Wait till it comes out on HBO or somewhere. Not worth the 6 bucks

Pelucid - Meh3 star

Listen, it wasn’t worth the rental fee. In fairness, if I caught this on a subscription app I wouldn’t hate it. And I didn’t hate it. It’s just not very interesting. If there are “B” movies, this one is a “A-“ movie. Not quite a B but close.

Oskar.Btran - Trash1 star

I looked forward to this movie only to be the worst movie I have ever seen🤦🏻‍♂️

maximo562 - Amazing5 star

I loved it!!! Great movie. I honestly thought the movie was intense!!! Hope they make a second part. Sad creeper had to die..

MikeyAZ84 - Garbage1 star

The movie sucked, the end!

DonDion2408 - Terrible terrible movie1 star

Terrible ending, it needed more Shia.

martinvic13 - Great movie !!!5 star

Finally a movie on Mexicans and it was so good !!

johnlw2 - Needed to be longer2 star

Without giving much away the movie needed to be way longer. Needed better character development and I felt like something was missing. It’s a good movie to rent. Honestly, it should’ve went straight to netflix and i would've given it another star. Not a terrible movie but should’ve been better.

William Zavis - Basura1 star

This film is a waste of time. Watched better student films. This director has wasted the time of the actors and actresses as well as anyone who watches.

l-o-b-o - Ok2 star

I was expecting more ... pero no bueno

BongoVonZipper - Weak1 star

Zero character development, felt like watching a 90 minute music video.

Kaplan's Music - Just bad. Not good bad either.2 star

Save your time and money.

GodsNu - Ok5 star

Had fun

natce722 - Terrible!!!1 star

I’ve given it one star only because they won’t allow me to rate less than 1 star. The narrative was terrible, the acting sucked and why did it cost $5.99 for such trash??!!! DON’T waste your money or your time.

MeMeMeAndYoudfg586 - Just terrible1 star

No story, cussing, RANDOM.

bootyliciousbubblegun - Bummer1 star

I’ve seen better acting on tik tok. No cap

Rand The Russian - Awful.....but really it’s a awful1 star

One star is generous. It’s so bad I took the time to write a review.

MA93! - Crazy5 star

Definitely got to my emotions, thought this movie was great.

cgclark - Oof1 star

Not good.

TTMolina - Shia was freakin Grreat!!!5 star

Movie was so good. Omg, a must see!

[email protected] - Great movie5 star

Great movie

TainoNoel - Great plot - ok execution3 star

The movie was great from the beginning until the action kicked off, they was kinda fast and all over the place, then the end back to being good. So I liked the movie, but the action parts could have been more in depth. Overall worth the rental price.

jsufurir - Mediocre2 star

No real flow to the movie. Shia got a big tattoo for nothing, in my eyes. He was portrayed to be the main character and was far from it and then killed off almost instantly. The other actor was okay not anything to write home about. Expected a lot more out of it.

Obn0R2k2 - What a bad film - do anything else besides watching this1 star

So much to unpack. First, reviews giving it 4 and 5 stars are paid reviews or bots. Second, terrible story that is super rushed. Third, very little character development. Fourth, why is Shia even in this film? Fifth, so many stereo types way over played.

Lotrboy89 - Had to watch it twice5 star

Watching this movie the first time was a bit of a ride for me. Be honest, I didn’t really like it. But when I watched it a second time, understanding more concept and motives, it’s a really good movie. Shia Labeouf is an underrated actor, and people who say this is brown face for him clearly don’t understand what acting is. That is acting. Cheers to all who made this film, it’s a deep film and the acting is great. Awesome flic.

Padrino9186 - Wait until it’s on tv1 star

Notice all the good reviews came out on the same day...they’re fake Movie started decent and then turned so unrealistic and rushed that it made the movie stupid. Not a single character was fleshed out whatsoever and the second half of the movie was super cringy “gang fights” and the lead character using the jujitsu moves that he learned in a single lesson from earlier in the film. And Shia wasn’t the lead like the trailers make him out to be.

Joejhorn - Worth the money4 star

Took my mind away from my problems for awhile - worth it!

TamDelight - Soooo Freaking Good!!5 star

Oh my! This movie is so good! Kind of brutal but chileeeeeeeee I highly recommend!
