Rating: 3.5/5 -- Flawed and perhaps a tad overlong, but pretty gripping all the same.
...BOUND BY HONOR contains some effective performances, some moments of deeply felt truth...
Rating: 2/5 -- When mainstream Hollywood tackles Hispanic-themed movies, such as this one, the results are usually disastrous. Though aiming at creating an authentic Hispanic street epic, the otherwise reliable Hackford has directed a diffues and cliche picture. Full Review
...Like one of those huge wall murals that give bold, defiant color to an urban landscape....[Chapa, Bratt and Borrego] are excellent...

...BOUND BY HONOR comes fully alive when it moves behind bars. There's an exploitative thrill built into the genre...
Rating: 2/4 -- Bound by Honor contains some effective performances, some moments of deeply felt truth, and a portrait of prison life that I assume is accurate. What seems to be missing is a clear idea of why the movie was made. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Long, ambitious and uneven, but an interesting project.
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
In this epic drama exploring Chicano life in East Los Angeles, Miklo (Damian Chapa), Cruz (Jesse Borrego), and Paco (Benjamin Bratt) are three young cousins raised as brothers. Miklo, born of a Chicano mother and a white father, is Chicano on the inside, but feels betrayed by his white skin and blue eyes that keep him on the fringes of his Chicano heritage. Desperate to belong to what he feels is his true family, he'll do anything to be a part of his cousins' gang--his "family." But a retaliatory attack on a rival gang sends Miklo, out on probation, back to prison, and he finds himself in San Quentin. As he serves his time and tries to find a place in the Latino power group in prison--La Onda--his hotheaded cousin Paco turns to a career in law enforcement, while Cruz makes his way as a successful artist. Cruz's career hits a dead end after he gets addicted to drugs and inadvertently causes a tragedy that alientates him from his family. With their respective paths drawing the family apart, the three men must find out who they are, and whether they can hold on to the bond that once united them. Benjamin Bratt and Jesse Borrego turn in believable, moving portrayals as Miklo's cousins in this decade-spanning drama loosely based on actual prison gang riots in the 1980s.

Blood In Blood Out
Now, from the director of AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN and the producer of LA BAMBA comes BLOOD IN ... BLOOD OUT, a critically acclaimed modern-day epic. Within the rich and colorful Chicano culture of East Los Angeles, three cousins raised as brothers fiercely live by a generations-old tradition of family -- a power stronger than law, a force deeper than friendship. In one life-shattering moment, the trio is torn apart, forcing them to follow three separate paths: one searching for truth in the law, one expressing his passion through art, and one finding power in prison. Yet through it all, family and honor keep their lives intertwined as each strives for survival and power!
