The true story of Danny Trejo

Danny Trejo is an extraordinary person coming from a very ordinary background and his story doesn't need embellishment, litle movie tricks to garner emotion or other crap like that. And that is why this little documentary is a decent one, not as in relatively good, but as in not disrespecting the viewer. It tells the story and that is it. It does have some people that kind of bring up their own opinions without actually having anything important to say, but they show their support for their friend, so it's OK. In the film you learn how a Mexican gangbanger went to prison, got a break and never looked back. After more than 365 movies under his belt, Trejo keeps humble and helps other with drug addiction, going to prison to present his points and accepting almost every role thrown his way. I knew some of the story, but it is a great one to be told and I was happy to have seen this documentary. Trejo is 76 years old, still going strong and working as much as ever. Many people from Hollywood could learn from him. Bottom line: See this old man, with an incredulous look on his face, talk about the life that should have ended him in his youth. He still can't get enough of life. A man to be admired and respected.

A beautiful masterpiece

What a story! The life of well known film star and hard man Danny Trejo is documented in this beautifully put together documentary. The story of his extraordinary life is told by the main man himself along with a really interesting group of family and friends. The story will have you in shock at some of the things he went through and done but in the end will leave truly uplifted and inspired. I can only conclude this by saying I absolutely loved it and didn't want it to end. I will watch this again and again.

Awesome movie!

Watched the world premiere last night at the Calgary film festival. It was so good. I left the theatre so I inspired. I would recommend this film to everyone.
