Quotes

Gloria: You're not listening to me. I'm an American citizen. I know my rights! I want to be taken to the US embassy!
Brian Reich: The consulate already knows about you, Gloria. My name is Brian Riech and I'm an agent with Drug Enforcement Administration. Now these are encrypted radio cellphones that only Esparza and his people use. They can't be tracked. So you're telling me that he gave you one of these, and he doesn't even know you?

Can a remake ever beat the original?
2 February 2019 | by patrick_mohrSee all my reviews

Unfortunately, Miss Bala 2019 do not surpass the original Miss Bala (Cannes Film Festival 2011). This remake lost realism and message from the original.
