If you haven’t already, check out the ‘Victor’ movie official trailer!
Victor shares a resemblance to The Cross and The Switchblade, a film cherished by many, and released in 1970. Victor retells the true story of Victor Torres, who moved to the US after being born in Puerto Rico, got involved in drug-dealing, and eventually fell in love with Christ.
Victor (Patrick Davis) and his family move to New York in the early 1960s. Like most immigrants, they are in search of a better life. As a teenager, Victor joins a local street gang. While in the gang, and surrounded by bad influences, Victor starts to abuse drugs. Before long, he is drug-dealing in an attempt to aid his struggling parents and little brother. When his parents, Lila (Lisa Videl) and Manuel (José Zúñiga), find out that Victor is enslaved by drug use, they immediately start searching for a way to help their son. While struggling with guilt and desperation, they find out about a faith-based rehabilitation program nearby. Could this be Victor’s last chance?
This movie is an inspiring, well-done film. The cinematography is flawless, and the soundtrack is straight out of the time period, featuring artists such as Bill Haley & His Comets, Clarence “Frogman” Henry, and more! Perhaps most importantly, Victor tells a remarkable true story of redemption, one that points to Christ.
It’s important for Christians to support films like these. Filmmakers who can tell a good story, and glorify God while doing it. Movies like this one have a good message, but it doesn’t stop there. They also are simply good movies – movies that can be used as tools for evangelism or just enjoyed in the home.
Currently, Victor is using the same model Beyond the Mask did to get in theaters. It is relying on individuals (like you) to bring the movie to a theater near them, via Gathr Films.
