3.0 out of 5 stars "Donde est Waldo?" October 5, 2012
Format:DVD
Upon this film's North American release, my like for the fantastic Marko Zaror - the only performer currently putting South America on the map of the martial arts market - was overcome by my wariness of spoofs and parodies, as this was said to be a take on 1970s spy fare. Thus, I let this one slip my mind for the better part of the year before finally committing myself to watching it. I truly believe it'll be a long while before Zaror manages to top his excellent performance in Undisputed III: Redemption, and with this mindset, disappointment doesn't come as easily, regardless of the film's other flaws. And while these flaws are indeed there and take their toll on my rating, I was surprised by how much of the film actually works. Its strengths aren't evident on the DVD cover, but they're apparent enough to enjoy for anyone who picks up the movie.

The story: an international assassin (Zaror) tracks down the crime lord who murdered his parents (Juan Aliaga) but in the process falls in love with his daughter (Chilean TV star Celine Reymond).

For starters, let me clarify that this is not an action-comedy, but rather an action film with comedic parts, mostly in the form of flashbacks and references to the hero's obsession with a fictional James Bond knockoff. The production emulates a '70s style, but this isn't done to the extremes of something like Black Dynamite. Cumulatively, the whole '70s aspect could have been done away with without damaging the film, and just exists to give the movie some flavor. Not that it'd be tasteless without it, of course, since the story and script are both surprisingly strong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Bond Homage May 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this movie. In many ways, this movie is as much a loving Bond spoof as the French OSS 117 films with Jean Dujardin...though not nearly as broadly comical. Everything about the film is brilliantly on-target, from the staging to the John Barry/David Arnold-esque music. The movie is structurally an homage to DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER (stealing the teaser almost beat-for-beat) and yet surprisingly original, too. As a child, Mandrill sees his parents killed and grows up seeking revenge against their murderer. The clever twist here is that Mandrill intentionally models himself on "John Colt," a cheesy 70s Bond/Shaft/Flint character. So you get a spoof within an homage. Cheeky. If you are fan of Bond films, Blaxploitation, and Eurospy movies, this is a must-see. Now I have to find the soundtrack!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent revenge film April 8, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I really enjoyed this Chilean revenge action film. The hero is on a mission to avenge his parents death but a woman makes his revenge a pyric victory. Filled with campy goodness including a series of fake 70's spy films starring a fictional "John Colt" who the hero modelled hmself after this film has tounge firmly in cheek but also delivers on good gun battles and mma style fight sequences. The lead female is smoking hot, the heroes uncle is a great mentor who has great advice for seducing women and best of all Mandrill is an old school bada**. Watch Mandrill you wont be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S WALDO? March 10, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This film is so bad I thought it was a spoof of 70's action films complete with wack-a-da wack-a-da music and disco. Marko Zaror plays hit man Mandrill and is given a voice that sounds like Jason Statham. His parents were killed by a hit man named "Cyclops" who lost an eye during the incident. He has become Mandrill's target. Earlier we saw Mandrill looking for a guy named Waldo, asking everyone "Where's Waldo." You can't help but laugh. There are flashbacks to his youth and his TV idol, John Colt, an oriental action hero who is also unintentionally comical.

In order to get to "The Cyclops" Mandrill must get the information from his daughter who he woos.

Terrible acting and dubbing.

No f-bombs, brief sex? no nudity (arms in way). This film might be better to watch as an MST project.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great martial arts movie. October 11, 2013
By MAC
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this film at Action fest Film Festival. Marko Zaror is in Machete 2 and did a great job starring in Mandrill. Great action and martial arts skills. And I understand that NO wires for stunts were used.
