A must see event!!!!!!!
2 August 2002 | by (Monterrey N.L. México) – See all my reviews

This movie in spanish is called "The wrestler, The boxer and the ghost" This movie is a real master work from the mind of a great movie director, this movie is the one who was the real winner before TITANIC, this movie is so lame that no one is gonna get near the chance of even getting their greasy hands on an old movie like this, we have a ghost, "La llorona" the mexican version of the weeping woman, a sad and scary tale, we have a boxer, Mr. Mantequilla Napoles, a guy called "MANTEQUILLA" (Butter) because he used the old nintendo (NES) Mike Tyson´s Punch out strategy "Stick and Move, Stick and Move" and a Wrestler, The best wrestler and the real mexican Superhero, The only, The magnificent, "EL SANTO"..Or..SANTO: El enmascarado de plata. So take a rain check on this one and let life go on.
