Plot Summary

From acclaimed producer John Singleton (Hustle and Flow, Four Brothers) comes an intense, action-packed thriller about a family's quest for honor and revenge. College student Wilson De Leon, Jr. (Rick Gonzalez, Coach Carter, TV's Reaper) never stood up for himself until the gangsters who killed his father came to settle a score. In a gripping, adrenaline-pumping showdown, Wilson and his mother (Wanda De Jesus, TV's CSI: Miami) decide to settle that score on their own terms in order to protect the people they love. Dania Ramirez (TV's Heroes, X-Men) and reggaeton star Tego Calderon co-star in this hard-hitting film loaded with gripping action and unbeatable suspense.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: An entertaining genre piece boasting a terrifically sinewy lead performance from Wanda De Jesus. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's helpful if you walk in with the expectation that it is a genre picture -- not a parody, not camp, but a loving homage to gangster movies of the 1980s like Scarface. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Potentially compelling questions of ethnicity, privilege and societal inequities lurk in the background, but instead of addressing them, the film flounders in melodrama. – Tasha Robinson, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Plenty of movies have combined a blazing-guns revenge story with a family dynamics drama, but Illegal Tender never gets the mixture right, lurching between bullet-happy shootouts and overwrought domestic content. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 25, 2007
