Two rich surburban teenage girls decide to step into the wild side and join an East L.A gang.
I've read some pretty bad reviews of this movie...and so wanted to see just how horrible it is. Here's what I think...It just tries way too hard to shock you...without actually shocking you...Sure you see some drugs...sex...but hardly any real fight...gun shooting...or any of that sort...and even if you see any of it on screen...would it really shock you...I mean these kids wanted...I repeat wanted to join the 'dangerous' underworld...nothing would shock you at this point right? It wasn't as if they were squeaky clean kids being thrust into a dangerous world. Plus you know I'm sure its much harder to infiltrate a gang that whats portrayed.
And the kids...they are some of the most idiotic pathetic obvious fakers you would ever see on screen. I mean seriously...you would probably hate them... Some bored, attention seeking rich white kids trying to act and talk street...how do they even survive in their own school?...I'd like to know that. And the actors...I guess they wanted to act in an 'edgy' film...or simply...they needed the money. So overall...I guess I agree with all the other reviews...I did not like this movie.
