Your typical direct to video Mexican ultra low budget action film!
Direct to video movie that I caught on Mexican cable. The movie deals with a gang of 6 "pandilleros" that terrorize a poor community until they meet their deadliest enemy with a gang of women that seek justice. These women kill the gang members one by one in some brutal ways for the crimes of the gang. These crimes include the death of the husband of one of the gang of women, a rape, and drug dealing. The male gang members dress in black with jackets and sure they are horrible! I would walk away if I see one of them walking towards me.
If things weren't as bad in the community, the police officers in charge of the "security" of the town are drug dealers and are as inept as a dog dressed as a cop.
The movie is bad, I mean, terrible but at least through it's running time it gives social messages like telling women to speak whenever they're victims of crimines such as rape, violence, etc. Also, it shows the sad situation of poor communities and it's members. The fact that a gang of women seek justice is well received and has it's merit of being "original". This isn't by any means a feminist action flick, but it looks like the producer and director wanted to send the message that women always fight back and know how to defend themselves!
Well, don't waste your money on this crap but if you're a lover of ultra low budget, or if you like to make fun of these kind of movies take a loot at it! There are some typical unintentionally laughing moments. Like when the male gang fights with a gang of military dressed "cholos". The heavy metal music in the background, the sound of fake punches (a la Street Fighter) makes a memorable and comical (though intentend to be dramatic) scene. The worst thing is that these fights happen very often in Mèxico's barrios.
Starrs the infamous Hugo Stiglitz, and Rogelio Guerra as a "judicial".
