That was one of Oliver Stone's first movies. Very good. I like James Wood. He was good in Robocop

Silvio -- Yeah, it was a good film, and James Woods did fairly
well. Interestingly enough, the part of the "Human Rights
Activist" was played by a man actually named "Salvador."
Salvador Sanchez, in addition to playing the part of the human
rights guy, appeared in the well-received "Mátenme porque
me muero!" in 1991 and in "Furia en la sangre" in 1988,
though he's probably best known to Western audiences for
his portrayal of a peddler in 2002's "Collateral Damage,"
which also featured James Woods.

Wasn't Salvador Sanchez a boxer who died in a car wreck?
He beat Azumah Nelson.

Actually, you're incorrect, which you could have figured out if
you'd paid attention. The Salvador Sanchez we're discussing
is the one from Tehuacan, in Mexico. He was born in 1943 and
appeared in his first film in 1951. As of this year, he has acted
in 60 substantial films. In addition to playing a peddler in
"Collateral Damage," he played the gunsmith in 2001's "The
Mexican" -- his first major Western film since 1991's
"Diplomatic Immunity." The Salvador Sanchez you're talking
about was born in Santiago Tianguistenco, Mexico, in 1959 --
eight years after our Santiago Sanchez was in his first film --
and died in 1982, making him ineligible (to use a boxing term)
for both 2001's "Collateral Damage" and 1986's "Salvador."
There's no way our Santiago Sanchez could have been the
boxer. If you really knew about the boxer's career, as you
alluded to know, you would've checked the dates and realized
he couldn't have been the film "Salvador," much less the
others we mentioned.
