Storyline

Cheito, a street-wise Venezuelan conscript, is thrown together with Pedro, a straight-arrow volunteer in the Colombian army, when one deserts his company and the other lives through an ambush. They must survive guerrillas, drug producers, corrupt narcotics officers, and each other as they bungle through the jungle: first they are enemies, then allies, then friends, until women and politics test their loyalties. Can pawns survive when powers clash? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good, Really Good
7 June 2005 | by (Caracas, Venezuela) – See all my reviews

I'm Venezuelan, Usually I never liked Venezuelan movies, to exception of "Huelepega", I don't know, it never gets my attention, maybe on TV, but never in the cinema, it's like that. But when I seen it on DVD, ooh, is just Terrific!, it was a real good movie about our boundary-war situation with Colombia for many years, and it is represented by a "malandro" (like a thief) who was sent to the frontier to lend military service. You Know the rest. And if you don't, go to see it! It is very entertaining, if you like these movies about drugs, sex, holdups, fights, infidelity, etc. All made in my country, Venezuela, you won't be sorry

PD: Dora Mazzone has nice boobs, don't you think so?
