  • Quite an entertaining genre piece boasting a terrifically sinewy lead performance from Wanda De Jesus. show more

  • As it is, Illegal Tender works as a melodrama, and it benefits enormously from the performance of Wanda DeJesus. show more

  • The movie's a genuine oddity: a Latino action drama with one foot in bullet-spitting genre flicks -- '70s blaxploitation and '80s coke-kingpin films are the primary reference points -- and the other in raggedly personal family melodrama. show more

    Not a bad movie - certainly action-packed, it holds your interest. And I especially like the mom - what a tough broad this is!

    I absolutely loved this movie. I loved how 'Millie' took charge of her and the lives of her sons. She showed her strength from the very beginning of the movie. She did what she had to do to protect them and made sure that they were financially stable enough to make it on their own. I see so much of myself in her character only I don't have the money. I congratulate John Singleton and the rest of the cast and crew for a film well worth the time, money and effort it took to produce and direct.
