Superb Song! Exellent Movie! Pedro Navaja is so realistic!
30 January 2003 | by (Monterrey N.L. México) – 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,Theres 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.
