I did not like this movie. I am a Hector Lavoe fan and have a lot of his cd's, I use to see him live almost everytime he went to Puerto Rico. What I didn't like about the movie is that the movie majorly focuses on his drug addiction and not on his huge talent as a singer. Hector was truly an excellent singer and a person that was part of the creation of the genre known as Salsa. I understand that he had an addiction that eventually killed him but to focus the movie on drugs instead of his talent is an insult to Salsa music and his fans. I also don't remember seeing his wife dancing next to him in any of his shows, but I guess they felt the need to include Jennifer Lopez in every scene which is good for the eye but not for the story.
I was disapointed. I expected to see the life of Hector from his childhood to his death. Every scene was filled with J-Lo and namely her ....assets. It was ok but that's all. Marc Anthony did a fantastic jobs....there was also too much cursing.
