Awful movie!
11 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I have ever watched. Do not waste your time and money on this movie. The movie is basically about random weird stuff that doesn't make any sense. For example, one character got a dead body from the local morgue so he could shoot at it. Does that make any sense to any one of you? Very sad. I regret wasting 90 minutes of my life on this trash, so don't do the same. Too bad because the casting is good, and it surprises me that they would be involved in such a bad movie.But if you like weird movies that do not have a story you can follow, then it's the perfect movie for you. If you want to watch a good Brazilian movie, watch the "Auto da Compadecida", but please stay away from "Amarelo Manga".
