Nearly Excellent . . .
25 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not a movie for anyone. It is mainly targeted to an audience that has read at least some of the thousands comics of "Boggie el aceitoso," Spanish for 'Oily Boogie.' Created by the late Argentine cartoonist Roberto Fontanarrosa, Boogie parodies the American stereotype of the macho, tough guy American hero.

Faithful to the aforementioned comics, which started being published in South America in 1974 and ended in 1995, Boogie is presented as a anti-hero who lives as a callous and merciless hit man in what appears to be New York City. Oily Boogie is thus a gun-for-hire and he couldn't care less about the target as long as the money being offered is good enough.

In this low budget yet highly original movie, Oily Boogie is the ultimate sociopath: a rude, uncouth, chauvinistic, misogynistic, warmongering alpha male. The script is very well done and it greatly helps to enhance all these negatives tendencies in Oily Boogie.

Jingoistic people should abstain to see this movie because, undoubtedly, they will find it offensive and grossly anti-American. Indeed, cartoonist Fontanarrosa was highly critical of the many wars the United States was involved in ---Vietnam in particular. Oily Boogie is an extreme version of the "Ugly American" seen by the eyes of anti-war cartoonist from Rosario, Argentina.

The movie is fast-paced, funny and somewhat unpredictable. Its violence is so extreme is laughable, and the main character, Oily Boogie, is so cynical it can make the audience laugh or just leave the theater...
