That Old Man Was A Fucking Asshole.

In Era Cabron El Viejo (aka "That Old Man Was An Asshole"), Viejo Paulino (old man Paulino) is sought after by his compadre (godfather) who is his rival in the drug trafficking business. The compadre has sent out a bunch of assassins to kill Paulino but they've all failed since Paulino and his sidekick always shoot the fuckers down with their AK-47's (ay guey!). Paulino has had enough with the rivalry with his compadre, so he decides to kill him along with his cousin, a snitch, and some cops that work for the compadre. He also kidnaps his compadre's young niece whom later ends up falling in love with him. Viejo Paulino is a fucking asshole, huh?

Era Cabron El Viejo starts off really good. Asshole Viejo Paulino guns down a car which then explodes (best opening credits ever), a drunk Fernando Almada acts grouchy, then there's some random shooting between Paulino and other old assholes (of course), then the movie takes a turn for the lamest with pointless comedic scenes, Paulino being nice to a little sick girl and being a romantic with his compadre's niece. What the fuck? I thought this was Era Cabron El Viejo, not Era Nice & Romantico El Viejo!!


Era Cabron El Viejo could of been so much better if Viejo Paulino was an asshole through out the whole movie, not half asshole/romantic/father figure.

Meh, Era Cabron El Viejo is whatever. Curious? Check it out I guess. Not curious? Then walk away and watch something else. 2/10.

That is awesome about the beginning...it is unfortunate that it peters out towards the end.

The cover and screenshots you took are very interesting.

I need a copy of that picture... without the bullet holes, of course. Actually, scratch that... WITH the bullet holes.
