The Mexican film industry is annually overshadowed by its behemoth up north. Because of this, the Mexican film industry does not attract the funding needed to make international blockbusters, and has to rely on making thoroughly good films based on sound writing, casting, and acting. This is one of those films. Taking place in the modern world, the movie is about two brothers, Juan and Julian Perez. The former is his mother's child, and follows the strict moral code of their mother. The latter rises through the ranks of the Mexican drug industry to become the head of his own cartel. Juan and mother immigrate to the US where the son joins the US Army and goes MIA in Iraq during the 2003 invasion. Julian is sent to rescue him, and puts together a crack team of hit men and trusted servants to do so. The meat of the movie is about this rescue mission, and the hilarity that follows. Using cutting dialogue, some good action scenes, and adequate special effects; this movie is part A-Team, and part Saving Private Ryan. Everything is in Spanish with English subtitles, so the viewer must pay attention to hone in on the drama between the key characters. Overall, a very good and entertaining film.

I couldn't stop smiling the whole time .
Pretends to be serious or you could pretend it is for added effect. But tongue in cheek the whole time. Comedy that is a real pleasure to watch. LOVED THIS FILM.

This is a fun movie and our teenagers loved it. The more familiar you are with stereotypes and telenovelas, the funnier this is. Our 12 year old sometimes got tired of reading the sub-titles but she understands enough spanish to keep interested.

I read both prior reviews so I picked up a used copy. Let me say this obscure movie is a marvelous treat. Bad guy brother promises his mother he'll bring back his captured brother alive in order to gain his mother's forgiveness for his many crimes. He gathers a rag-tag group of five "specialists" to aid him in this near impossible quest. What follows is a mixture of action and humor that results in a superb film

It may be a spoof of Saving Private Ryan but it's funny and it's interesting and it shows that even the worst Narco's need the approval of their mother.

This combo-genre film (action/satire/war/drug dealers/buddies) is an antidote to all the action films that are so routinely put out by Hollywood. A Mexican drug dealer has to rescue his brother from Iraqi terrorists to win back his mother's approval. He assembles a gang of bad guys a la dirty dozen and they cross the globe in search of the brother. Good timing, and good fun, this film gives us the pleasure of enjoying our cliches even as we laugh at them.
