This film manages to portray in a peculiar and funny way what it is to live in Mexico City.
The film has a good development of the story, it manages to get into some of the things that are lived daily in this city, not only does it have a good humor, but it also manages to be profound by exposing how corrupt our politicians are with businessmen or even with organized crime leaders and how the only people affected are always the citizens, also exposes the economic and social inequality that exists in the city. Although the film uses conveniences so that the story continues, making it a bit implausible, at the same time it is funny, the shots are very good when putting emblematic places of the city on screen, portraying what the city really is, the development of the characters is good, some performances are good but sometimes they feel a bit over the top. The music for the film is good, as is the makeup and some action scenes.
I did not expect anything from this film, but it ended up surprising me with its better thought out script than most current Mexican films, and for its funny proposal that portrays a part of what it means to live in Mexico City.
