Jack was a puppy then. Wish time would stand still for all of us.

While there was an obvious Hollywood bias in the movie, it was none-the-less very well done. As always, any form of enforcement regarding American borders is portrayed as pure evil. And, as would be expected, the bad guys are our guys. Everybody else is just a victim.
That said, I actually was moved by the struggle and the helplessness of the people. That and the thanklessness of the Border Patrol's unending job.
As always, Jack Nicholson was fantastic. He didn't play the character, he was the character.

I think he played a Border Patrol Agent to a "T"
