Description & Features+

The life of rock & roll legend Richie Valens bursts across the screen in this celebrated, music-filled movie with star-making performances by Lou Diamond Phillips as Richie and Esai Morales as his half-brother, Bob. "La Bamba" depicts the 17-year-old Mexican-American's rocket rise to fame, from field laborer to rock star with a string of hit singles and a date with destiny. Fueled by Valens' hit songs performed by the Grammy(r)-winning Los Lobos as well as classic '50s tunes, "La Bamba" recreates the thrilling early days of rock and pays homage to the enduring legacy of a remarkable talent whose music crossed all borders.

Ratings & Reviews+

La Bamba is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Labamba is Fantastic! The story is about the wonderful musician and singer, Richie Valens and his very short life. Lou Diamond Phillip's portrayal of him was mezmerizing and full of excitement! The movie was great when it came out in the 80's and it's still a very good movie. But man, what we all lost! Makes me sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The DVD itself has some short special features about Ritchie Valens and the making of the movie. My son enjoys it and watches it a couple times a week. No problems with it so far. I had been looking for this DVD as a present, but could not find it in stores. Looking online, the best deal overall was Wal-Mart, especially using the Site-to-Store feature. The regular shipping price was less than that of other places on the internet, but since I live about a quarter mile from Wal-Mart and go there about once a week, it made sense to have it sent there and save on shipping.
