Storyline

The high-flying documentary Lucha Mexico is a journey into the vibrant world of Lucha Libre, where masked warriors fight mythological battles in the squared circle. With access to all the major Lucha promotions, directors Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz take you deep inside the Mexican wrestling culture, documenting its rich traditions and passionate style. At the heart of the film is second-generation luchador Shocker, the self-proclaimed "1000% Guapo" superstar who suffers a serious injury and faces the reality of life without wrestling. Featuring a cast of fan favorites such as legendary Blue Demon, Jr. the tragic Hijo Del Perro Aguayo and lovable mascot Kemonito, Lucha Mexico is a hard-hitting spectacle of high spots and low blows, and goes behind the mask into the heart of Mexico.

Love wrestling movies
11 November 2016 | by johnhernandez-67188See all my reviews

This documentary is the real deal and gets into the world of Mexican wrestling in a way I've never seen before. It's entertaining and also gives a lot of insight the lives, the mask and fights. Features Blue Demon Jr, the late Perro Aguayo Jr, Strongman and Shocker who is the main protagonist of the film. Having seen many sports film this truly captures the lives in an intimate way that typically isn't done, and this made it an entertaining experience. I also enjoyed how the film captures so much of the world, and how Lucha LIbre has changed and evolved into something bloodier. If you think wrestling is fake then you don't get wrestling. This film does a good job to not give way all its secrets.
