Thunder over Mexico
15 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at age 12 in 1942.....It is the most hellishly and gratuitously violent and bloody movie I have ever seen!!! Mondo Cane in 1954 or 56 ran a close second!!.........The scenes of killings by bullets or by being buried up to the neck in sand and having horses stampeded over the area defies description......Curiously I have never been at ease in Mexico since and the 'shake downs' that my friends have received at the hands of the 'powers that be' reinforces my opinion...........Indeed the assassination of Cardinal Posada in Tijuana a couple of years back in TIJUANA where he was hit by 26 bullets in the papal limousine AND NOBODY SAW ANYTHING supports my view that Mexico is inherently a very dangerous place for any gringo to wander off the beaten path!!
