Krvava, nasilna ali ujedno i zabavna Meksička akcijska krimi komedija redatelja i scenarista Luisa Estrada. Glumačka ekipa je nama uglavnom nepoznata, a film je u Meksiku već imao svoju premijeru još prošle godine, 3. rujna 2010. Također je bio prikazan i na ovogodišnjem Cannesu gdje je nadam se neki američki distributer otkupio prava na prikazivanje. Ukoliko je, do kraja godine ovaj film bi se trebao pojaviti na English friendly DVD-u. Ali o tom po tom.
Drugs, guns, violence, death: Mexico today is a world where ruthless cartels operate beyond the reach of the law, and where a bloody fate awaits if you don’t watch your step. Deported to Mexico after 20 years as an illegal in the USA, Benny Garcia returns to the tranquility he left behind in his sleepy rural town…or so he thinks. Much has changed, and opportunities to earn an honest living are few.
With limited options before him, “El Benny” reluctantly joins his boyhood friend working for the merciless Don Jose and the Reyes gang. As Benny gets swept away in the current of corruption and endless bloodshed, he is also blinded by the rewards from the narcotics trade: riches, women, and power. But El Benny knows the life of a “Narco” has no future. Jealousy, greed, and betrayal in the Reyes gang threaten to topple Benny’s empire, and he knows there’s only one way out, on a path paved with death and destruction. Benny’s rags to riches rise is about to take a violent detour…
