El Chicano Fight CardIt has been almost one year since the very last one of these Fight Night cards with the last one being from the original Kickboxer film. This week, we are focusing on a film that was just released on to Redbox that kind of flew under the radar as we present the film El Chicano. The film stars Raúl Castillo (Special Correspondents) as LAPD Detective Diego who has just landed himself on a very high profile Mexican gang shooting that left a lot of victims. You see Diego finds a connection that is going to connect to his past when he discovers that the gang he thought was affiliated to Shotgun (David Castañeda) was actually loyal to his dead twin brother. What does this all mean to Diego and what is the connection between the gang slaughter and his brothers death. He soon discovers that a mythical figure from his past may be his key to bringing justice to not only East Los Angeles, but also to his family. Now as we go into this match, we know that Diego is heading into the fight dressed up as El Chicano, but he’s been pretty banged up considering he has already taken out 30 fools. The same could be said for Shotgun who may have been wounded in the gun fight, but just seems to be a snake that seems to run away when things go down. Unfortunately for him, they are about to meet one on one in the train yard for an epic showdown.

FIGHT NIGHT EC1Let us remind you that it is down pouring in this East LA, but Shotgun is ready and he is calling out El Chicano. He wants to throwdown with the Mexican Myth and El Chicano answers and calls out to him on top of one of the huge storage containers. Shotgun climbs up and the battle is about to begin as El Chicano patiently awaits him. They stare each other down as Shotgun keeps pumping himself up by thinking of his father who fell to a different El Chicano 20 years earlier, but right now he doesn’t know that this is a different El Chicano. Shotgun starts off the fight swinging with the metal pipe, but Diego is too good and is able to disarm him with some knees and kicks to the midsection. Diego is just too much for Shotgun as he blocks every attempt from shotgun and after so many punches and kicks sends Shotgun off the top of the storage container and to the ground which is at least a 10 foot or more fall. This was a smart move on Diego’s part because it’s able to buy him some valuable time so that he can regroup while Shotgun tries to recover from the fall.

FIGHT NIGHT EC2Diego makes his way to the ground and he surprises Shotgun with a shoulder tackle that sends him back to the ground. That is when Diego unveils the Mayan knife and as he throws it into the ground, Shotgun spews some noise at him and they resume their fight. Diego is mostly winning this fight as he seems to be able to measure all of Shotguns offense. Shotgun does temporarily stun Diego that sends him a little a back and even gets a couple of good shot sin before Diego shut it down with some impressive Muay Thai moves as he beats Shotgun into what he believes to be submission. As he turns his back to go and gran the knife, that is when Shotgun pulls a gun out of his boot and he shoots Diego right in the back. Diego has no choice, but to hit the ground as he has been injured enough in the past week. It’s a surprise that he was even able to get to the fight in the first place. Shotgun begins to demand that El Chicano take the mask off of his face, but Diego makes his move and even though a shot was fired, he was able to subdue him enough to be able to stab him with the Mayan knife.

FIGHT NIGHT EC3Diego begins talking to a stunned Shotgun who lays helpless on the ground and her reveals himself to be Diego and he tells Shotgun that he owed this to him for his twin brother Pedro and that is when he digs the knife deeper for the win. Diego collapses to the ground after all the punishment, but now he is worried that the cops are about to find out who El Chicano is as well, but he has nothing to worry about as you’ll see towards the end of the film. Diego is able to carry on the legacy that his brother Pedro was trying to do as in cleaning up and protecting their Barrio in East LA. The film overall was pretty good and you’ll see that some of the good action comes towards the last half of the film as he does some damage taking out 30 people (not including Shotgun). As I said before, the film is available to rent at Redbox and anywhere else you get your movies from so check it out. I am going to give the film an B- for a final grade.
