This is the "Evil Dead" of action movies - a 16mm low-budget action movie that is hugely entertaining with a lot of inventive camera angles and huge amounts of blood. The film feels realistic and has a nice bunch of faces and (to me) unknown Mexican faces. The only scene that rings untrue is when our hero runs up a car hood and the villains stupidly shoot themselves.
Like a Shakespearean comedy of errors but with more people blowing huge bloody holes into one another with big-ass guns. Some pacing issues. Wasn't convinced by Peter Marquardt's villain to begin with--those line readings!--but he redeems himself in the last 6 minutes or so with a fantastic series of "angry gringo" faces.
