Quite enjoyable.
13 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Most Americans have never heard of Pedro Infante--even though he was a huge recording and film star just south of the border. And, although I have probably watched more international films than anyone you'll ever meet, I also have never gotten around to watching any of Infante's films--until today. And, after enjoying "A.T.M.: ¡¡A toda máquina!!", it certainly won't be the last of his films I watch.

The film begins with a homeless guy, Pedro (Pedro Chávez) watching a group of recruits trying out for an elite motorcycle police unit. One of them, Luis (Luis Aguilar) notices Pedro following him home. On a lark, he decides to invite the poor guy for a bite to eat--and Pedro eats EVERYTHING. And, soon, Pedro ends up moving in with Luis. However, Luis is an odd man--in some ways he's very nice to Pedro and at other times rather nasty. Eventually, the two become cops together and begin a huge rivalry that follows throughout the movie.

I liked the film because the characters, particularly Infante's, were enjoyable. Plus, it was nice seeing Infante himself doing his own insane motorcycle stunts. An enjoyable mix of music, comedy, romance and camaraderie. Not a great film but a very gentle and engaging film.
