“Some dreams are worth fighting for.”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Hector Villa (Kuno Becker), a scrappy migrant farmworker by day and part-time prizefighter by night, struggles to reach for a better life for himself and his ailing mother. But when Hector discovers their rich rancher boss has slashed his mother’s pay, he pays the ultimate price for brawling with the boss’ thugs—a one-way ticket back over the Mexican border. Beaten up, broke and jobless, Hector joins forces with an old-school trainer and sets his sights on the rancher’s boxer son for the ultimate David-and-Goliath face-off in this adrenaline-pumping drama from stunt coordinator-turned-director Jimmy Nickerson.”

Movie Critics
…a punchy, melodramatic piece of tried-and-true Americana that mixes cultures (and film genres) with an eye toward knocking down borders both cultural and contemporary. … [3/5]
—Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle
…There’s scarcely a boxing-movie cliche left unrecycled by the end of “From Mexico With Love,” an inaptly titled and thoroughly predictable indie drama… Aimed squarely at Hispanic auds, despite its almost entirely English-lingo dialogue…
—Joe Leydon, Variety
