It's like Mexican corrupted reality...but only funnier.
23 December 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

"Todo El Poder" is an intelligent critic towards corruption, politics, and the high wave of crimes happening in Mèxico City.

At first it was conceived as a social critic against the system and the fore-mentioned situations that every day keep damaging our country; but the truth is that this movie isn't a straight accusation against someone or something in specific. Let me explain myself. If you want to criticize politicians, governors, narcos, you need to give specific names and situations. But that would mean danger in Mexican society.

Still, "Todo El Poder" tries to cover many situations from modern Mexican society and it does it in a great manner filled with black comedy, drama, and bits of realism.

The acting is great but some characters are very clichèd. Good performances by Colombo, Suàrez, and Tovar. The rest of the cast is also good.

If you want to have an idea of how Mexican's Judicial System works, watch "Todo El Poder" to know more about it but only funnier.
