Great character journey !
29 August 2017 | by (SouthEastern Europe) – See all my reviews

"Lowriders (2016)", a textbook example of a good movie ! While not tackling epic themes such as survival of humanity(since it's a drama), the story is told through it's characters as they make mistakes, learn upon them and change. We following their relationship within and outside the family while keeping it like a true lowrider movie, low and easy, totally opposite of F&F movies. Cinematography was really good, with lighting sometimes being really outstanding ! Overall I'd recommend this movie, even though it wasn't upfront like most modern car-culture-inspired movies. I'm giving it 7/10, a totally subjective opinion.
