American Me

Factual error: Rudy "Cheyenne" Cadena was not killed by his own gang as shown in the movie. In reality, he was killed by the Nuestra Familia, the rivals of the Mexican Mafia.

Revealing mistake: When the man has to kill his brother, on the side of a road, as he strangles his brother with the rope you can see that the rope is not around his neck, but actually behind his neck.

Montoya Santana: Whatever I did to you or to mama... to make you hate me, I'm sorry.
Pedro Santana: Your mother was a beautiful woman. She made me feel proud. She was 19 years old. Raped... by sailors. After it happened, we never talked about it. Then we got married and we tried to forget. When you were born, I tried to love you. But every time I looked at you, I wondered who your real father was. I wondered which sailor's blood you carried inside of you.

Montoya Santana: You want to know something? I never been to the beach before.
Julie: For reals?
Montoya Santana: Yeah, for reals.


Question: At the end of the movie right before Rudy's gang kills him, they ask the Asian guy if he was coming out and he said he was staying in. Did he not come out because he feared they were going to kill him, or did he know they were going to kill Rudy and he wanted no part of it?

Chosen answer: He did not want to take part in the murder. That's why one of the attackers asked him "You sure you know what you're doing homes?"

Question: Why are JD and Mundo serving as much time as Santana? They were only charged with breaking and entering.
