A captivating good production values for a low budget film and good acting from the main characters and most of the cast, good pace. The story lack of depth however. it is entertaining , intense and suspenseful thriller and romantic. Luisito the men chararter seems to be bad but in the inside he is a good person. I recomend i

Wandsheep: "Huh, Did this really happen? where?" YES, THIS REALLY HAPPENED IN SANTIAGO, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC---IN THE EXACT CITY WHERE THEY FILMED THE MOVIE. GREAT MOVIE. TOTALLY LOVED IT.

Is it me or did the female lead have a thick PR accent? Wasn't she supposed to be dominican? The acting was not really felt by her. And an assasin for the secret police? Huh? BTW I saw city of God and this was such a copycat version, obvious plagiarism attempts at various parts in the movie? Autobiography? Huh, Did this really happen? where? Did the writer live inside the city of God

Don't bother. Saw this tonight and it was NOT what I expected. Very disappointed. The acting by many was really bad. Surprising that they didnt do a good casting job. The lead female seemed as if she was reading in many parts. Thumbs down from Brooklyn.

If La Soga feels neither gritty nor poignant enough to hit that sweet spot, it's not for a lack of sincerity. Full Review

There's nothing about Josh Crook's cop saga that will strike you as new, but he and his talented lead do build an epic feel into this gritty tale of corruption. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Although at times the film gets bogged down in psychological murkiness, the relentless pace and brooding charisma of its star overcomes its narrative deficiencies. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
La Soga moves with a crazed energy that denies moral nuance. But the banal narrative (based on events in Mr. Perez's life) is elbowed aside by Josh Crook's eccentric direction and images that the cinematographer, Zeus Morand, brands with near-poetic intensity. Full Review

A film loaded with interest that somehow fails to be interesting, La Soga is inspired by true events and not much else. Full Review
