Nice little crime thriller
10 May 2013 | by EisenstarkD-1See all my reviews

I caught this film last night at the Beverly Hills Film Festival and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a legitimate bi-lingual, bi-cultural experience, taking place both in the US and Mexico. William Forsythe as "Gringo Dog" is at his creepy best, but Walter Perez also holds his own as the hero along with sidekick Charley Koontz. I'm in love with Romina Peniche but that's another story. Why she isn't a huge star mystifies me. The story's not the greatest, but the dialogue's pretty good, and if you speak Spanish and English you're way ahead on this one since the English subtitles are sometimes a PG translation of what they're really saying. Obviously done on a budget, the film manages to squeeze some real production value out of several cool-looking locations and some second-unit material shot in Mexico City and environs. Sound and picture are first rate, as is the music. Worth watching.
