Not so good Mexisploitation.
1 September 2008 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

"Yako, Cazador de Malditos" is the typical exploitation flick that deals with revenge. Yes, a revenge flick in other words.

Unlike most of American's films of the kind; this one does not have too much graphic violence, gore, or even elaborated f/x that could gross out the audience.

The plot deals with a band of mountain rednecks who murder Yako's pregnant wife. Obviously, Yako takes revenge on every single gang member. The survivor of the gang, "El Texano" is actually who killed his wife. The ending is predictable and I expected more violence on it.

So, this is a light Mexisploitation flick with plenty of mediocre acting (specially from Yañez and Chatanuga), dull murder and action sequences, and horrible music.

The best feature of the movie is the crisp cinematography that gives a feeling of a 70's exploitation flick.

If you are easily amused by Mexican action/revenge flicks you might want to check out this one. If not, please avoid it! It tries too hard to be taken seriously.
