The worst movie I ever seen
8 August 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I do not know the director before, but if he follows this kind of movie he is going to fight head to head with Ed Wood as the worst film-maker in history.

I am really interested in Mexican cinema and they have very good directors, but in this one the direction, the acting, the plot, the camera and the cinematography looks like an amateur film.

There is no logic in the film. If he intends to show a double morality in Mexican society the story is just awful and does not reaches the minimum level of quality that a movie deserves in our times.

It deserves to being watched just as we see Ed Wood's films: Just to think; can anybody do worst than this?
