We learn a lot about chicks with guns
Extremely funny - but without intention. I used it to light up a rainy Easter holiday.
Another movie, where the authoress/directress takes things very, very, very SERIOUS!! Maybe it is a comment about rape and male violence?!? Then I fully agree to any message that I did not find! Because the message is carried by "megababe" (Wayne's World) Tia Carrere, who fires guns, wears boots and a miniskirt and grimaces like the Little Masochist's nightmare (watch her faces, when she rides the motorbike!). And, in the beginning, the others say, that she even "likes sex". What a dream! I was happy that she never practised sex during the movie, so that she is still untouched in my dreams... (to make the ending more sentimental, she ends up with a son, even without sex before)
No, seriously: this serious movie is dealing with the serious topic of brutal rape in third-world-prisons. We learn serious information: that third-world-policemen read bondage magazines and rape every innocent woman who enters their jail. That a woman lawyer, who is supposed to be one of the good girls, takes drugs from complete strangers. That her future husband is a complete loser. That two stupid, horny, drug-abusing bad guys can cross a room unnoticed in the good guys' back, because the good guys were too busy watching the room for enemies (the good guys came to fetch their money, instead they only sneak through the house, searching for trouble). We learn that smugglers, who are supposed to bring lexicon's across the border, shoot them instead...
We learn about the art of movie writing: you can write anything that comes to your mind, no matter how stupid. For example bloody shootouts. You don't need any reason or explanation. Make the your characters silly; no one cares, only some nerdy IMDb writers - This comment gets too long! - Let me only add, that this bad movie had a good marketing abroad! Viewers from New Zealand, Bulgaria and Germany!
And I strongly recommend the German version for additional humour: the Mexican people change languages quicker than underwear. When they swear and talk to each other, they use German, which is translated by English subtitles, but sometimes, without reason, they only speak Spanish, without subtitles. Well, no one cares.
