It wanted to be original but came out generic
29 December 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

That's the way I would describe this film...It is true that not many(none?)action films are done in Mexico but it isn't just about trying, if that were the case then everybody could do film-making. From the producers of Matando Cabos comes this (well intended?)action film that pretends to be original but in it's effort it results more generic than everything, first of all Tony Dalton's screenplay is way to thin to even sustain a film of 90 minutes, you can tell he wanted to have lots of surprise moments in his film but instead of feeling like smart twists the plot feels full of inconsistencies and as if the screenwriter thought "well what then" and suddenly a twist for the plot came to his mind. The use of music while adequate at some moments becomes excessive and the film relies way too much on it to create an atmosphere and I say create not enhance. One thing you can't say, and it is that the director didn't put style in the film, he uses every angle & shot he knows in the film whether it is to compensate for the lack of substance or just to show his "film skills" I don't know but I think is the latter.Now about the acting the only rescuable performance is Jordi Mollá's in his brief role, Dalton and De LaReguera are adequate but then again the screenplay doesn't help that much and Silverio Palacios as in Matando Cabos plays the cool guy.The action sequences don't stand for something new or groundbreaking and some are excessively long and some could've been just avoided but then again the had to fill time since the screenplay couldn't. A movie to watch just if there's nothing better to do, and if you wan't to check out Tony Dalton's work you better watch Matando Cabos which even when it thinks of itself as original but owes lots of films, still is way more fun and entertaining than Sultanes del Sur.
