Bound by Honor

AN EPIC STORY OF THREE BROTHERS. BOUND BY BLOOD. DIVIDED BY FATE. DRIVEN BY DESTINY.Ā 

Two Chicano half-brothers and their white cousin take different paths in life, as Paco (Benjamin Bratt) becomes a narc, Cruz (Jesse Borrego) an artist and Miklos (Damian Chapa) a gangster. An ambitious film, co-written by the poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, that surprisingly enough holds oneā€™s interest for three hours in spite of clichĆ©s and predictability. The most exciting parts take place in prison: the positive aspects of the film are a testament to the filmmaking and storytelling skills of Taylor Hackford and his collaborators. Chapa may have watched too many James Cagney flicks, but itā€™s nice to see passionate acting.Ā 

1993-U.S. 180 min. Color. Directed byĀ Taylor Hackford. Screenplay: Jimmy Santiago Baca, Jeremy Iacone, Floyd Mutrux. Cast: Damian Chapa (Miklos), Jesse Borrego (Cruz), Benjamin Bratt (Paco), Enrique Castillo, Victor Rivers, Delroy Lindo… Billy Bob Thornton, Ving Rhames.

Trivia: Alternative title: Blood In Blood Out.
