Was a really enjoyable film that was just fun to watch and didn't really have terrible camera works like a lot of offer modern ones seem to have. One can watch with family.

I really liked this movie! Nothing like it out there. I don't know what movie the person who rated this movie 3 stars but I'm a movie buff and for the budget it seems they had to work with they did a great job! I especially liked the relationship between "Taco" lol and the white dude. Will recommend to others.
