    Violent, vulgar, disgusting and incredibly funny.
  2. 63
    Far from perfect, but for those willing to laugh at the darker side of life, especially Latin American life, it is fun.
  3. 50
    It's abundantly clear that Lozano and company have been re-watching "Pulp Fiction" for the last decade, pausing long enough to pick up the fluid rhythms of "Y Tu Mamá También" and "Amores Perros" while completely missing those films' social and political edges.
  4. A Spanish-language black comedy with a frenetic style that plays out like regurgitated Tarantino and Guy Ritchie.
  5. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    A perfect example of the sad trend in contempo Latin American filmmaking to imitate old Tarantino with only a fraction of the stylistic cojones, frantic comedy dealing with two pairs of confused guys and one pair of kidnap victims is an empty exercise that loses its juice before first reel's end.
  6. A grimly unfunny and stupefyingly inept comedy.
