Amazing
25 November 2017 | by mwang121See all my reviews

I watched this with 2 other friends who didn't think much of the movie.

But for me, everything was amazing.

The setting in the Mexican badlands, the time they took to put the grit into the costumes and backdrop, the acting, the dramatic story line.

It portrayed that place in a way I could believe even though it was an insane place.

I would agree that at times it did go too fast and new characters were introduced without warning.
