The three prison gangs in the film are fictional creations of screenwriter Jimmy Santiago Baca and director Taylor Hackford. Actor Theodore Wilson died shortly Im Popeye The Sailor Man - Hazy Osterwald Sextett - Apres Ski filming his scenes in the film.
Artist Adan Hernandez was hired to create the paintings the character of Cruz Candelaria was supposed to have painted.
All of the paintings that were used in the film were created by him. The mural in the reservoir seen in the film's climax has unfortunately been painted over. Hernandez made a cameo appearance in the film as the drug dealer Gilbert in the art gallery scene.
The main character Miklo is sent to San Quentin, where much of the film's plot takes place. Several of the then-inmates appear in the film as extras. In addition, several of the prison staff members also appear as others and some facilitated the production of the film by serving as technical advisors.
Many members of the staff were given small lines in the film, with the warden giving an extended cameo in a part that is somewhat integral to the plot. In addition, actor Danny Trejowho appears in the film as Geronimo, had served time in San Quentin before deciding to become an actor. In addition to prison inmates and staff and artist Hernandez, screenwriter and barrio poet Jimmy Santiago Baca cameos as a prison inmate and member of the La Onda council.
The film was initially entitled Blood in Blood Out but was retitled Bound by Honor before the film's release. Blood in blood out refers to the initiation ritual of having to kill someone to enter a gang and, on the reverse end, not being able to leave the gang unless killed. This is a common initiation in many gangs, including prison gangs, and is also the motto of La Onda in the film. Hollywood Pictures insisted on the name change as the studio felt that it would incite violence in East Los Angeles.
Director Taylor Hackford has stated that he was very unhappy with this decision as the film's message was the exact opposite of the one that the studio feared would be transmitted. The film received mixed reviews from critics.
The principal difference between the two films is that Bound By Honor is by far the glossier effort, relentlessly picturesque in the seamlessly anesthetized manner of mainstream Hollywood films.
Bound by Honor covers similar material in a less passionate and finally less meaningful way. Martyr (Suffer Bastard Mix) - Fear Factory - Metal Box (All Media, Album) states " Bound By Honor comes fully alive when it moves behind bars. There's an exploitative thrill built into the genre…"  This film critic was definitely more interested in the second half of the movie once Miklo was in jail running La Onda.
It's full of heroic and tragic incident, but skimpy about the details of quotidian lives. Although Vincent Canby does not give an official rating for the film, he concludes "Though it's not the epic it means to be, it is not a failure. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
