Anatomy of a Fight Scene

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.Read more ›
Chilean born star Marko Zaror stars as Antonio Epsinoza aka Mandrill. The movie opens with Mandrill killing his mark and being well paid for his assassin skills. During the payoff he is given the option for another job, one that will lead him to the man he's sought for years, a man known as Cyclops.
Flashbacks lead us to how and why Antonio became a killer. As a child he witnessed the murder of his father and mother at the hands of a ruthless killer. Before being killed his mother was able to wound the killer and taking out one of his eyes, thus the Cyclops name later on. As Antonio grows up, he is raised by his uncle and learns what type of man his father was. It seems his father based his life on a film character who was the quintessential ladies man and spy. We never learned who he worked for but the uncle does help Antonio with his one weak area: women. How to be suave and debonair and always get the lady into bed is taught in one lesson. How this uncle who seems more sleazy looking than inspiring is part of the camp.
Back to the present and Mandrill heads to the home of a killer for hire who knows where to find Cyclops daughter, the weak link in his armor. A hand to hand martial arts battle takes place and eventually the two sit to talk. Before he has the chance to kill him Mandrill takes out the hit man.
We move on to a casino as Mandrill checks in.Read more ›

I first ran across this movie a couple of years ago when I randomly found the trailer online. I thought it looked very cool with a lot of nice action. Read morePublished on June 21, 2012 by Amazon Customer
Mr. Mandrill has moves the likes of which I have never seen! The movie is spanish subtitled and has a James Bondish way about it that keeps the movie light. Read morePublished on May 10, 2012 by Sam
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. Read morePublished on March 10, 2012 by The Movie Guy
