pedro navaja
14 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was pretty much hard to find itself but now it's part of my collection,It tells the story of a man named Pedro and is called Pedro "Navajas" it's the Latin name for Mack "The Knife", so Pedro played masterfully by Andres Garcia, he is a player, a pimp, he has a lot of women working for him on the streets and he gets his money that way, He is the ultimate playboy, a real hustler,But he's not the only one, There's "El Cumbias" played by Sergio Goyri his rival and his Teacher in the arts of prostitution,He has a brother and a "Girlfriend" who is played by Maribel Guardia before she looks fantastic, she even makes a half naked scene that looks awesome,There's a dancer named "La Tijuana" played by Sasha Montenegro and she has a superb body, she gets completely nude in this flick, we can say that it gets erotic at some point, police is always going for Pedro and he gives them a bribe and they let him go, he is a modern robin hood because he helps everybody and everybody worship Pedro, it's a must see to see what reality was in the streets of Mexico in the late 70's.To finish the number they play it's original song's theme PEDRO NAVAJA and they act exactly what the song is saying at the same time, cool coordination of events at the end.


Sorry to say but this movie was originated cause of the song Pedro Navaja and that song talks about New York City and not Mexico.

The Pedra Navaja's song has nothing to do with Mexico, that song was written thinking of New York.

listen to the song at the end, and you see.

so for you to say that "it's a must see to see what reality was in the streets of Mexico in the late 70's" that is a bunch of lies. please be honest, the movie it self has nothing to do with the song, cause like I mentioned before this song PEDRO NAVAJA was written thinking about New York and not Mexico. and no where in the song mentioned that pedro navaja was a pimp.

the girl was a prostitute not she was not his girl. she was just a prostitute that happened to be out on the streets at the same time pedro navaja was looking for a victim. please get real. papi..
