Rating: 3.5/4 -- This is a simple story of hope and triumph, of one girl with the drive to succeed defying the odds and following her dream. It's not an original tale -- movies like this abound -- but Nava's point-of-view is fresh. Full Review

Missing is a sense of the interior life behind the smiling face that Selena showed the world. What of the drive that led her to music? What comfort did she find in it? What pain?

By the end of the film, Selena has been all but canonized.

...Pleasant to watch....The movie's concert sequences have a fluency and bounce that match the music...

...SELENA succeeds, through Lopez's performance, in evoking the magic of a sweet and talented young woman...

Rating: 66/100 -- A well-meaning but bland and shallow salute to Selena.

Product Description:

A celebration of the life of Tejano princess Selena Quintanilla Perez, the rising star who was gunned down by the president of her own fan club in 1995. Amid the racial tensions and economic hardships of 1980's South Texas, the daughter of a Mexican immigrant (himself a failed doo-wop singer) grows up to be a sensation in the blossoming Tejano scene before meeting a tragic end. Light on insight, this biopic revels rather in Selena's on-stage achievements. Selena's father is credited as an executive producer to the film.
