  1. Dulce Itzamara Hernandez's rating of the film Herod's Law

    Una película ambientada en una época entre 1940-1950 donde la fotografía se ve en tonos muy sepias sin explotación de los colores ,los movimientos de cámara y planos eran o muy a primer plano a plano americano o plano general algunas alternancias con planos detalle y planos medios ...y trabajos en varios tipos de movimientos de cámara como básicos y paneos , tilts, en ello realmente no se explotó tanto

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Herod's Law

    Una muestra sobre la degeneración política y las dinámicas gubernamentales que todo ello es a causa de una herencia histórica. Luis Estrada es un director comprometido que adrede resuelve su trama con una suerte de triunfo del mal. Es un mensaje con mirada cínica, aquello que por un lado es cíclico, pero por otro se sigue malgenerando proporcionalmente.

  3. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Herod's Law

    Layered and dynamic characters, strong story and emotional arc, as well as an involving plot makes it a successful piece of agitprop. Its main problem is the comedy is much too subtle and slight to get many laughs. The film's intended laughs are often of the dry, cliched nature that the message becomes too over-conscious, thus the sharp sense of satire feels like a pulled punch, instead of a knockout blow.

  4. Amapola's rating of the film Herod's Law

    México hecho película, no hay más.

  5. Rebeca Magnus's rating of the film Herod's Law

    "La imaginación consuela a los hombres de lo que no pueden ser. El humor los consuela de lo que son." - Winston Churchill

  6. ramosbarajas's rating of the film Herod's Law

    A satiric critique that dares to go where not many had gone before. Shot in a somewhat film-noir style, it delves into the problems haranguing Mexico and moves to show the continuation of these problems. Openly denouncing the political system, the story necessitates one to feel strongly for the subject. I feel the film would be more poignant sans the comedy; it opens it to a broader audience, but dilutes the issues.

  7. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Herod's Law

    Starts off with a funny, caustic humour, but the tone changes and wears off, drags, stretches in an unfunny, unsurprising second half. The idea was better than the outcome. Great leading performance.
