Movie Reviews

I am from venezuela
Freddy | 10/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an awesome suspense and action movie, representing the reality of venezuela, when you see it you will be amazed and everybody I know that actually lives here (my friends and family went out of the cinema shocked of the country we are living in), the sad part IS ALL TRUE and it's one of those movies you can't leave the cinema to go to the bathroom you will be hypnotized and wondering in EVERY PART what's going to happen next. It's so realistic that Venezuelan government has forbidden the movie to be played on cinemas other than the capital, and the film will not be released for the national market"
At last a Venezuelan movie I can relate!

"There's so much to say when seeing this movie, specially because I live in Caracas - Venezuela and have been a victim of the cotidianity of this place.
This movie pictures a reality often ignored by people that don't confront it day by day. Poverty can become an influence, envy can become a lifestyle and hate its just a reality among us. Its a hard critic to the differences in society, of the degradation in our lives, and just so makes you thing about the importance we often give to being wealthy or poor, to have possesions or to be bare...
This movie its completelly different from previous Venezuelan productions, shows the young vision of a new filmaker and brings new blood into a genre that in our country is not well placed... Films that is...
The actors, many well trained and some amateurs, like Budú, Niga & Trece, show perfect characterizations, and the camera work, even when inspired in many new time movies, shows a different proposal.
In the country of Telenovelas, with movies like Secuestro Express, that make such a critic & studied composition of reality, one might think, maybe its time to forget about the narrow little box and expand to the big screen.

"Excelente película. Retrata vividamente la realidad que se vive en las grandes ciudades Latinoamericanas , llamese Ciudad de México, Bogotá o Caracas. Bravo por el director"
Its true but not reallyt truth
E. C. Rojas | Indiana | 04/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Its a great as a movie that tries to portray all LAtin American reality in less than 2 hours. Its nice to see some new latin AMerican talent trying to breakthrough in a filmmakers world. Its a little exagerrated but a very nice film, a thrilling ride.

But I got to admit that this movie brought a lot of controversy into my house, at first I was shocked I didnt believe that my city, the city where I lived most of my life was like that , then it came anger to the movie makers for making such an exaggerated film like that and finally it came acceptance that it truly represents Latin America in a sense that the corruption, drugs, injustice, poverty is all there.

The movie gets unrealistic when all the situations that the characters live occur in a period of a couple of hours and in the smae dayt o the same people. Its true that kidnappings in Venezuela occurs, its true that drugs occurs, its also true that carjacking, robbery occurs daily and thorugout the city but its also an exageration to say that if you go there it will occur all to you and only in a day.

Dont make assupmtions about it, I lived in Caracas over 10 years ans nothing ever happened to me. GREAT MOVIE!!!"
