We got to sit down with Lowriders’ director Ricardo de Montreuil and two of its actors, Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy, Luke Cage) and Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High). We talked about the making of the film and the folks who made it happen, like producer Brian Grazer.

Talking to director Montreuil, we found out about their four-week shooting schedule and how they ended up with the Lowriders title. I enjoyed listening to Theo Rossi’s description of being a “blue color actor.” Watch the video below for his full explanation. I am very proud to see Gabriel Chavarria’s growing career blossom.

The film Lowriders has so much more going for it than the title suggests. It’s in the same vein as A Better Life, and it shows another slice of the Los Angeles stories. I thought the mood and the music chosen for this film were on point.

Synopsis: Lowriders is set against the vibrant backdrop of East LA’s near-spiritual car culture and follows the story of Danny (Chavarria), a talented young street artist caught between the lowrider world inhabited by his old-school father (Bichir) and ex-con brother (Rossi), and the adrenaline-fueled outlet that defines his self-expression.

Guardians Vol 2 in 4DX

Groot, 4DX Cinepolis Theater, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

By Gabriel Rodriguez (@GeeRodreezy)

This review is on the 4DX Cinepolis Theater for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Upon entering the theater, you can immediately tell that it’s a new and premium experience. It actually smells like new car, which was incredible!

The seats are set up in rows of four, because each set moves together rather than having each individual seat move. That wouldn’t work; they would hit each other. I would say the only drawback to this is if you have someone that moves a lot in your four-seat section, then you will feel every movement they make. Otherwise, they’re great seats. Each seat has a foot rest-type attachment so that your feet don’t touch the ground and a button to turn water effects on or off (in case you’re not into having a complete experience, I guess).

You may think that this experience is going to be nonstop moving and vibrating, or a recipe for motion sickness, but thankfully it’s not. While the seat vibration does take a bit of getting used to (maybe 15 minutes), it does not deter from the experience at all, and the most intense motions will only come during big action scenes. Otherwise there are smooth seat transitions, such as the seat tilting back when a ship is taking off. Along with the movement there are smells and sounds unique to each film. Fans blow at the rear of the theater to create a wind and noise environment, as if you were in the movie itself, as well as short bursts of air next to your ear to simulate gun fire or fast moving objects. All of this along with the smells of fire and forest that engulf the theater during moments in the film, fully immersing the viewer in the movie’s universe.

While this may not be the experience you want for every movie, this is definitely something you want to do for big action movies or those in which you want to feel more engaged with the film. Overall, this is an experience I will not forget and will most definitely try again.

Now check out our post with videos from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 press conference with Kevin Feige, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Rooker, Chris Pratt, Kurt Russell, James Gunn, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Zoë Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Sylvester Stallone, and Sean Gunn, just click here.
