Sorry, this movie sucks
Fresh and Exciting
Best movie of this year hands down!
This is a gorgeous movie made by a gorgeous spirit.
I think that is an excellent movie, the acting and the direction are great, but the only part that I hate about the movie was the way that the director and the writer shows Mexico, with skinny cows and ugly dogs and a horrible town that almost there are anymore, thats not Mexico, we have cosmopolitan cities like Monterrey, Guadalajara, DF, and we know that we have a lot of problems with Narco and violence, but that is not a good image of Mexico in the world in the way that they make this dark humor comedy. I like the director is like the 2 part of "Herodes Law" that was excellent and it was with Damian Alcazar, one of my favorite actors, Elizabeth Cervantes I haven't see her before , is a surprise she is very good actress and very sexy about the rest of the cast there just great!!!!
This movie from Director Luis Estrada, who ten years ago made "La Ley de Herodes", now surprises us with a film that is both funny (in a very dark way) and sadly real, about one of the biggest problems our nation is facing nowadays: The narcotraffic and the violence derived from it.It follows the story of Benjamin García AKA "El Benny" (a very good as usual Damian Alcazar), who comes back to his town after 20 years living in the USA as an illegal, just to see his already impoverished town even worse than how he left it, now under the Drug War, at first he doesn't want to get involved in that business, but then sees it as an opportunity to make big money and then come back to the Staes, a dream tat soon becomes a nightmare.If you get the chance to watch it I recommend it just to understand the roots and development of this cancer, that being honest, is as much USA's fault as Mexico's, cause the Americans are the main consumers and their government has done little to nothing to reduce consumption.
I just got back from watching this movie, and I feel like a just got a beating, unfortunately, it's a beating of reality, and it's not pretty.First of all, it's a raw human drama that grabs you right from the beginning and doesn't even let you breath right until the end. It pretty much portraits the dark side of the human soul: violence, corruption, greed, murder, revenge etc. everything under the sad reality of the narcos and drug trafficking in Mexico. It's interesting that you see this from the point of view of the narcos. And it even has the virtue of using some dark humor that doesn't make the viewing more comfortable. Script, production, cinematography and acting are wonderful, especially Joaquin Cosio, absolutely brilliant (no wonder why he was picked as one of Bond's villains in Quantum of solace). I found valuable the fact that it is a hard criticism to the government, the authorities, the police, the justice system, and not just the actual ones, but the ones we've had in the past 80 years, and that, in a way, it's a slap in the face to the celebration of the 200 years of independence. That said, it has to be understood that it reflects only a part of Mexico's reality, though it's a brutal one. Just like after watching City of God you can't assume that Brazil's whole reality are the favelas, the same way it'd be wrong to assume that Mexico is just narcos killing each other. Powerful and brutal, not an easy watch, but, in my opinion a must see for any movie fan.
This is a picture of Mexico's reality: drugs, violence, corruption and zero opportunities to people. Estrada is a no-fear director that shows what are happening in my country, he told about corruption in police corps, army, politicians inclusive with president Calderon y former's presidents, the church (catholic) has a important role in the film. Damian Alcazar is a warranty, Joaquin Cosio, Gomez Cruz, Maria Rojo, Salvador Sanchez all of them great actors that make a brilliant movie. The story is about Benny Garcia (Alcazar) a deported Mexican who found his town worst than ever, without job and no money he was introduced to mob group by his best friend Cochiloco (Cosio). Love and violence, loyalty and human feelings is mixed in this picture. Congratulations to Estrada for his courage to say the things like are in a country like Mexico.
