Suffers from expectations
2 February 2019 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

The preview from Miss Bala suggested that the film was far more violent than it actually is. That isn't to say there are not some violent sequences, but the film is not per se a violence film as much as it is tense drama about an ordinary woman trying to survive under extraordinary circumstances. The acting is uniformly good and the Tijuana sequences are done very well.
