Great Music for Latin music lovers
on 16 November 2015
I can't begin to tell you how much Hector Levao was and is loved,
in the NY Latin scene. He was like the Porto Rican Elvis, of the
1970s.What we have here, is an average Bio-pic, but with great
music. A well filmed and well acted movie, but, not a great Bio-pic.
Jlo and Marc Anthony were married at the time of making this film,
and this was a bit of a passion project for them, as they both share
Porto Rican roots. This is a Nuyorican soap opera, because that is
what Hector Levao life was, a sad soap opera. A tragedy after tragedy.
This movies deals with his drug addiction and music career, and Jlo
and Anthony give good performances, but, it does drag on a bit. His
early career with Willie Colon and their El Malo/Boogaloo days are
skipped over, and we get the story of the start of Salsa... But the
1970s, is well covered. This maybe a movie, for Latin music lovers
only?... . I donno...
