'Spare Parts' Movie Review: Underdeveloped Latino Stereotypes, McDonalds Dismantle Any Potential This True Story Had

"Spare Parts'" final half hour, arguably its most interesting, is also its most predictable and not until the final epilogue, which details these characters' outcomes, does the viewer actually feel invested in the four teenagers. There is no doubt that the intentions (aside from the horrific McDonald's commercial) are sincere in highlighting the achievement of Latinos. But unfortunately this film offers nothing new that has not been seen before. Clocking in at almost two hours, the movie almost feels like it is being forced down the viewer's throats as a way to make people feel sorry for Latinos rather than celebrate their greatness. Any attempts at cultural authenticity falter because the film relies so heavily on the tired stereotypes to represent its characters. There was certainly a great story here, but the execution is as poor as it gets making "Spare Parts" live up to its title as another throwaway movie.
