This film is a complete farce, but does have some very
funny ideas. In one scene, the rival gangs both ordered to avoid a war
and get along, meet to solve their differences. When one of them swats
a fly on his forehead, the gangs open fire on each other across the
table. Both gang heads, and the Marquéssa as well, have been
contributing heavily to the campaign of a presidential candidate.
Turns out to be a waste when he is jailed for sex with a ten year old.
In the brothels, the girls keep track of time with a taxi meter.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this description, this
film is a C+. If this sort of over the top
farce is your thing, this might be worth renting for you.
