Viva México and Viva "Salvando al soldado Pérez"!!!!!!!!, 22 May 2011
Author: Ernesto Diezzepeda from Mexico

Just saw this movie during a special midnight screening in the "Hola México" Film Festival in L.A., and let me tell you that I love it!!!! Really funny, with great characters and an imaginative and international story, for me as a Mexican was a touching but also exciting experience to be in an American cinema watching a great Mexican movie. What a crazy and well done idea for a movie. At last a Mexican movie where we are the heroes of the movie!!!!!! I can't wait to the commercial release of this movie in the U.S., I check the Internet and it seems it will be September the 16th of 2011. Viva México and Viva "Salvando al soldado Pérez"!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the soundtrack was incredible, the score and the songs, all delivering the right tone for the screenplay, the actors and everything that takes life on the screen!!!!!!!
