Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Based on true events in the Dominican Republic, La Soga tells the personal struggle of one brave cop who revolts against his country’s unscrupulous government. He risks everything in order to find justice and avenge his father’s death. La Soga is a riveting, emotional story of redemption in the midst of inhumane brutality and political corruption.
I was a little disappointed that the movie uses racial steriotypes of who is good and educated and who is poor and bad. It made a hero out of a crooked cop who did the bidding of a crooked government and who never stopped being crooked, but continued to do the govenments bidding until he could not have his way to finish a childhood vendetta. I am really praying that if the vendetta and the many murders in coldblood part of the story is true, that this kind of person is not in the US. But having said that, while I didn't like the storyline, the visuals and acting in the movie was first rate and I hope that this small market will continue to grow and produce unique stories.
not for the first date
glad that I saw this movie. glad also no pork chops for dinner.
premise may be flawed by common simplistic movie characterizations but locations, music, images very strong.
cultural bias at the action genre level. probably not art mirroring life, but a hammer to shape it with.
disconcerting on many levels, but imitates reality, seasoned with unrefined sugar. sympathetic depiction of vegans.
