The first installment of a planned trilogy, director Francisco Laresgoiti's speculative sci-fi thriller finds the son of a powerful general caught in the middle of a raging class war between the privileged elite, and the downtrodden masses. In the year 2033, Mexico has become a fascist state. As the upper classes partake in debauched parties and amuse themselves by using the poor for target practice, a highly addictive drink called Pactia keeps the working class under control. Meanwhile, the religious minority forms a resistance movement, and finds an unlikely ally in the guise of privileged military brat Pablo. Despite his sheltered upbringing, Pablo knows the difference between good and evil. And once a line is drawn in the sand, he is compelled to turn against everything he's ever known in the fight for the future of humanity.

Did You Know?


The movie contains many references to socialist-oriented characters in Mexico's past: first, the painting at General Benavides' dining room is the work of muralist artist David Alfaro Siquieros, a well-known member of the Mexican Socialist Party (PPS); the name of the tyrant, PEC, forms the initials Plutarco Elias Calles, a president who, in fact, tried to outlaw religious worshiping and thus started the Cristero Wars. Finally, the name of the rebel leader, Father Miguel, is a reference to Miguel Pro, a rebel priest who was shot during the Cristero Wars and recently canonized by Pope John Paul II. See more »

Good Enoug
18 April 2010 | by shiri_appleby_2001See all my reviews

I have to say I am Mexican and a Sci fi fan so... taking that in to account Yes the movie has a lot of little issues here and there... and in the end it fails to deliver...

But still the visuals are amazing, maybe i'm wrong but never seen a Mexican movie like this before... It looked pretty expensive, and We know how Mexico's pesos are devaluated currently,the scenaries are beautiful and the movie it reminded me a bit of THX 1138, Equilibrium, Fahrenheit 451 and some others of the kind

lets give it some credit, in its context, usually Mexican films are pretty much the same all the time, I felt this one was significantly different at least from my point of view, the theme was new for Mexican directors, and the story, everything, We know we've seen the plot in other international movies already, but at least not in here and trust me I was always complaining about it

the plot I think it was OK, most of the bad side actors and Pablo (the main one) I felt were good in their roles, but the truth is the good guys (the girl and the priest) were halfway the road, it was like not enough character development, motives, their dialogues lacked of feeling and emotion sometimes, etc I just could not buy them...

all in all I LIKED THE MOVIe, I enjoyed it, was Interesting, visually appealing, I was tense in some scenes waiting for the outcome, and I was surprised for the premise of the movie, besides some actings I did not like the end... other than that It was OK, and decent for a Mexican Movie...I think the director took some risks but if He makes another one maybe he'll get there... I definitely say Worth watching...
