The movie opens with Antonio bringing Rosario into an emergency room. Both are covered in blood. While Rosario is taken into surgery, Antonio takes a stroll down memory lane to where he first meets Rosario.
Antonio and his friend, Emilio, meets Rosario at a trendy bar. Emilio and Rosario immediately hooks up. Rosario is a sexy, fascinating and mysterious woman.
Throughout the movie, you're not sure if Rosario is doing assignments for someone else or if she's the head honcho. Antonio later tells her about these rumors he's heard about her. Even Antonio isn't sure. Rosario just laughs it off.
What's interesting about this movie is that the first half, she's in control. However, once her friend/"brother"/mentor/caretaker, JonHefe was killed, she seems to lose control of everything.
Meanwhile, Antonio is in love with Rosario. However, he doesnt' want to come between her and his childhood friend, Emilio. Plus, he feels obligated to look after her after her brother made him promise to do so.
I enjoyed the cinematic scenes throughout the film. However, what I wasn't too crazy about was the stereotypical portrayal of Latinos as gun-toting and revengeful. Ah well, I guess there are small rings of truth in stereotypes.
Overall, good movie. In fact, probably one of the best Latin action films that I've seen in recent years.
Rosario really likes Emilio, but only for sex. For her, he's a diversion from her hard lifestyle. She doesn't tell him anything about her life, although early on she gives him a very graphic "hint" that she's not to be trifled with. On the other hand, as she gets to know Antonio, she tells him everything and invites him into her life. Eventually, after being insulted at dinner by Emilio's wealthy parents, she lets go of Emilio and falls for good-guy Antonio.
In the meantime, by way of flashbacks, we come to understand how Rosario came to be the killer she is. Growing up in a poor barrio, she was sexually abused as a young girl by her stepfather. She got even with him by emasculating him with a big pair of scissors -- thus earning her last name, "Tijeras.Read more ›

This was a great movie. A great story line and amazing performances and lets be honest, the gratuitous Flora Martinez nudity doesn't hurt either. Read morePublished on February 12, 2009 by B. G.
Good film with a gorgeous girl and good actors. Shows the kind of life that poor colombians involved with drug dealers have to suffer. I'll probably watch it again.Published on June 13, 2008 by A. Gonzalez Arquieta
