Not your typical cartoonish Mexican acction flix
25 August 2002 | by (Charlotte, NC) – See all my reviews

Bajo la metralla is actually one of those movies that keep you at the edge of your seat. It has it all! Maria Rojo is one of the best "unpolished" jewels to come out of Mexico. This movie was splendidly made without falling into the typical crappy caricature acction movie that Mexicans tend to do in movies like Siete en la mira, Lola la trailera or anything made by the Almada brothers.
