I am looking for a movie from South America where some teenagers are trained as assassins and ride motorbikes to assassinate people and get away fast. A boy wants to stop being an assassin and plans to run away with his girlfriend but ends up getting shot at the end of the movie. It was made in the 90's I think.

@coleopterist What's wrong with South American? At least "Spanish" seems too narrowing and deviating from the actual question, "Spanish-language" maybe. – Napoleon Wilson Oct 7 '13 at 14:48

La virgen de los sicarios (Our Lady of the Assassins). It is a Colombian movie:

The tempestuous love story between Fernando, an older man who has recently returned to his crime-ridden drug capitol hometown of Medellin, Colombia and the gun-happy 16-year-old assassin Alexis, who murders all too easily. When Alexis himself is fatally gunned down, grief-stricken Fernando hunts for his young lover's killer in the Medellin slums, but instead encounters Wilmar, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Alexis.

There is a movie listed on IMDB with this title as the original name, but called: Our Lady of the Assassins ... I don't know if this is the same movie you are suggesting as it doesn't seem to match up with the above description. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 7 '13 at 14:27
@Paulster2 It does seem to be the same. I included the English/World-wide title. While the description doesn't seem to match, with the lack of explanations in the answer, we have no other chance than go by the title and assume that's what the answer refers to. – Napoleon Wilson Oct 7 '13 at 14:33
@ChristianRau ... it may be that the IMDB description isn't really as descriptive as it should be. I'll bow to your expertise. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 7 '13 at 14:37
Thanks for your help and effort but it is not, "Our lady of the assassins". – Trev Oct 14 '13 at 9:27
