Great concept, poor execution...

I don't know where to start, what can I say? Truly, when I first watched the trailer for Frontera I was immediately intrigued and swiftly tracked it down. I didn't anticipate the inevitable disappointment that would follow, mainly because the concept is fantastic, and the issue at hand I believe is both contemporary and imperative to the world we live in. Unfortunately, the execution was disappointing.

First, there isn't much great acting on show. Harris as the hardened no nonsense yet compassionate rancher is a cliché we've all seen before. He's not bad, but not great. Longoria doesn't do a bad job either, you really do sympathise with her, but that's about it. Nobody else engages, not even the poor chap who gets framed in the first place. The background music often seemed out of place and didn't add anything to the scene, sometimes it even seemingly covered up important dialogue. There were problems with the plot too, there was so little focus on the protagonists incarceration and legal troubles, sometimes characters just get pushed aside too and we never hear from them again.

Like I said, I really appreciate the concept, this is why I'm so disappointed in the quality of the final product. While there are of course harrowing scenes, the bulk of it isn't engaging or well acted. Although admittedly, I really liked the final scene, it was a nice way to tie everything up. Ultimately, I'm disappointed in the film's quality. I hope in the future we get a production that focuses on a similar theme but with better substance.

P.S. Some of the visuals were outstanding, it is after all set in such a beautiful part of the world.

Excellent movie

This movie did an excellent job of depicting the harsh life for people of Mexico. I wish with all my heart they could get rid of the corruption and crime and become productive like the US.

Until then, they will risk life and limb crossing into the US to find a better life. This movie was well written, well acted and I am certain very accurate in portraying the circumstances many have been subjected to while crossing into the US.

The movie doesn't really intend to get political but it does show more than Mexican people trying to make it to the US. Pay attention to what occurs in the desert as the coyote is waiting for the van to pick up the group of people.

Ed Harris did an excellent job of portraying a man who lost his wife to a bad situation and still managed to be honest and fair.

If you are like me, and appreciate people who are good, decent, and honest, you will probably let out a whoop of joy at the very end.

Good Indie Film will definitely watch again!

There are a multitude of things that go on his world that we as comfortable first world couch potatoes don't really know exist. This story takes the viewer into the world of human smuggling across the American and Mexican boarders, and the struggles associated with the issues at the border.

The cast performed wonderfully, the story could have contained a little more, but it did not take away from the overall message.

I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good Indie Film. Sometimes it's the mistakes and little quirks that makes these movies so real.

I voted this picture a 10 due to the time-frame that it was shot, the low budget, and the high quality of the background, cast and production crew.
