First class, 12 January 2012
Author: Guenzel_D@MSN.com from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Really, all of the FALCON films are quite delightful, and THE FALCON IN Mexico is fresh, witty and consistently entertaining. Despite some of the rather silly reviews of it seen here this writer can very highly recommend it.

Typically with this series the dialog is quite sharp and delivered with panache by a solid stock company of reliable actors and actresses. The mystery element is quite well handled as well. I must say that one thing that particularly pleased me was its charming music score which relied heavily on south-of-the-border melodies as well as some classic RKO library music by Roy Webb which was always good.

Conway is as suave and pleasing to watch as ever and there is a fine supporting performance by the underrated Nestor Paiva. The ladies are beautiful, charming and a little mysterious and really nothing can be faulted here unless one enjoys indulging in nit-picking.

All in all a thoroughly satisfying movie and one of the very best of the FALCON series. Recommended for all viewers, not just FALCON fans.
