TAITA BOVES chronicles a thirst for revenge that devastated a country. It tells the true story of Jose Tomás Boves, a cruel man who became a legend during the Venezuelan War of Independence, the most violent in the Americas. He went from seafarer to pirate, horse smuggler to prosperous merchant, prisoner to military chief. Spanish by birth, he spearheaded a grass roots troop of slaves, mulattoes, Indians and mestizos that crushed Simón Bolívar and his patriot army. Respectfully referred to as "Taita" by them, he fought for the underprivileged and the poorest of the poor, and curtailed three centuries of order in this colonial region. This film is about his passions and power, his loves and misadventures, and a bloody saga that rocked Venezuela.

My best friend suggested we should watch it after the DVD was advertised on one of his favorite shows. I found the DVD for $10, and figured it wasn?t too much of a risk buying it. Green Graves (Bret Harrison) is a small town boy who has a real talent for creating special effects. His little brother and him rent every horror movie they can, which drives Green?s skill, making him want to make it out in Hollywood. When the chance is given to decorate the annual haunted house, this seems to be the break he has been needing. But his abusive stepfather, and the religious community stand in his way. And it seems that the only person that understands him is Angevin (Laura Prepon), who works at the video store. But her overly religious mother causes some problems as well. Both to end her daughter?s relationship with Green, and Green?s monster making career. Once I got situated in the film, I had high hopes for it. It seemed like Green was a likeable character, and the movie could do no wrong. But it did a lot of wrong. While it tried to paint a realistic picture of a frustrated boy, it got dowsed with some of the thinnest idea?s of characters ever. So much was being built up on everyone, but there isn?t really anything that is brought by this. Even the resolution with the stepfather seems more wrong than necessary. And the use of religious protesting over the monsters Green creates, just seems standard and lifeless. I did like Harrison and Prepon a lot in this movie. That pretty much is all that can be said about the acting in this film. Everyone from Green?s friends to the Sheriff, played by the staggering lameness of Hal Sparks, the movie is a showcase of forgettable characters. I will say that the movie does have a good feel of movie making in it. Seeing Green?s passion for what he does can be inspiring. So, in the end the movie is mildly worth seeing. It is far from great, but not so much that you can?t get a little out of it. But I strongly suggest renting it first. [/font]
