Trivia

Since the story is set in a not-too-distant future, the currency used is the ECU (European Currency Unit), which at the time was due to replace in some years the local currencies of several countries within the UE. However, by the time this happened in 2002, the ECU had been renamed "Euro". See more »

Fabulously twisted sci-fi comedy
10 January 2004 | by (Milton Keynes, England) – See all my reviews

Accion Mutante are a group of disabled terrorists who think of themselves as mutants and who see their mission as being to rid the world of pretty people and superficiality. Unfortunately, they are quite fabulously inept at what they do, and they are totally mistrusting of each other (with good cause, it turns out!)

This film is a comic masterpiece: the direction is a cinematic treat and the more times you watch it, the better it gets.

To give you an idea of just how impressed I was, I rented the film once and then went back to the rental shop and bought that copy from them.

If you enjoy off-beat, quirky movies that defy genre then you're going to love this; if you don't enjoy such eccentric celluloid expeditions then you may surprise yourself by enjoying this anyway. I can assure you that it'll be unlike anything you've seen before - go on, take a chance.
