Too pretentious and Insulza
16 March 2014 | by jazzroa-595-254916See all my reviews

A film too pretentious. Have a good start, but little by little it is diluted with the film advance. Lack of solid story, with details tacky. Exacerbes many of the current social problems in Mexico, such as lack of security, values ​​and corruption. The crime of this movie is having too Andrés Bustamante's expectations. The performances of the rest of cast are poor. Abusers use the name actors like María Rojo or Kate del Castillo to attract the public, but they only appear a few seconds. In summary, The Crime of Cacaro Gumaro is a lamentable waste of time and money. Watch it, just if you desire to support the Mexican film industry.
