The same problem of almost every Mexican movies
14 March 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I've just finished watching this movie at home because of the poor distribution that had when it was released at Mexican theaters. The fact is that it is a very good movie for Mexican standards, if not the best released during 2008, even I liked more than Arrancame la Vida; the main reason because I enjoyed this movie is because it maintains the suspense that a thriller should have, especially during the last 15 minutes when we discover who is the killer. Also the movie has excellent production values, good acting and an excellent editing. The problem are the development of the characters, which is the problem of many Mexican movies; we never care about them and is the same if they die or not, if the win or not. The actors do they job very well but the have to follow the script, so they can't make characters who make connection with audiences. I think the Mexican screenwriters should learn how to develop better characters so they make them for us enjoyable. If this movie had that, it would be an excellent Mexican product... ahhhh! and also the movie has holes on the plot. For the next time I recommend director Mario Muñoz take notes from this advices and will be able to make a masterpiece.
