When legendary thief Max Cruz is framed by the CIA, he has no choice but to help them with a top-secret mission. Mexican crimelord Beno Gildemontes has stolen classified intelligence data. Max must steal it back. Max plays it cool as he infiltrates Beno's palace stronghold in the steamy jungle of the Yucatan. Max is surrounded by treachery and can trust no one, including Natalie, the dangerously beautiful CIA agent assigned to watch over him. But he finds an unlikely ally in Sofia, Beno's sultry mistress.

Best Action Thriller by an Independent Production.
17 December 2004 | by (Hollywood, United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, Mexican stories also have rights to use English language. So that we all (non-spanish) can enjoy. And BANDIDO is an excellent example of using English language. I know the feature film GANDHI was filmed in India and it is an Indian story, and it's producers used English as language medium. They had option to film in Hindi, but they used English as a result entire world and particularly United States enjoyed it and GANDHI is well known to American audience now. Offcourse the hero of Bandido is not Silvester Stallone and need not to be. Movie story is not about a body builder but a genuine portray of the character. And Carlos Gallarado is perfect in look and acting. I would like to take him to Bollywood India where more feature films are produced than in Hollywood. Perhaps Carlos will be better appreciated in India and all those countries enjoy Bollywood movies. We can use his talent. I am a member of Producers Guild of America and I know it is a hard work to produce an Independent movie without any studio help or help from Hollywood movie tycoons. Among all supporting actors very few spoke English as first language, yet they portrayed better character and many of them never acted in any movie before. Like Salma Hayek, they will take over Hollywood soon. Just watch out. My Salute to Producera/Director/Writers and all actors. MobinKhan
