Perro's future is solved.
22 January 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

A sequel to the now cult Mexican movie "Perro Callejero" brings back Perro and his sidekick Flautas for more urban misadventures and more "coco fish" dialogs. The first one was a hit because of it's crude but humorist way of portraying Mexican's society and the ups and downs of being part of the lower social class.

The sequel leaves behind the humor and focuses more on the crude and raw. The plot involves drug dealing, politic and police corruption, male raping, drug addiction, poverty, and violence. As you can see, the movie portrays events that are still present nowadays. These situations are shown through the movie through the eyes of Perro, who isn't by any means a local hero or role model. In fact Perro is a lifetime drug addict and lower class parasite but unlike as Flautas, he has the chance to change for good.

The two scenes that shocked me the most and in my opinion are the most important scenes are Flauta's demise and the baby's born at the end of the movie. Flauta's murder is a piece of Mexican exploitation cinema mixed with a touch of sadness for fans. While he is taking a shower, Elizondo and his men stab him in the chest and then throw him to a glass door. A very disturbing scene. When Perro's baby (?) is born, he is told by the doctor that the baby is probably going to born with mental illness (wrongly called as "idiot") while the baby is shown having a sort of an attack. Then it's mentioned that the baby could've born deformed because of his parents' drug addiction. The scene is disturbing mainly because of the dialogs and acting.

Anyways, at the end Perro has the chance to start a new life by working as a car mechanic with Andrès and has a new illusion to live for : his son. The very last scene shows Perro walking in Mèxico D.F. streets holding his baby and running through many cars as he tells the baby "guey" and and "pinche". Not your typical "happy" ending.

"Perro Callejero 2" is a production mess and uses humor when it isn't necessary but it has the cult status for being a unique on it's kind movie. Watch the movie in order to witness Perro's popularity.
