Miss Bala

Miss Bala isn’t boring, but it isn’t all that thrilling either despite a strong performance by Gina Rodriguez!!!

Rating: 3 Stars

What I Like:

-The beautiful Gina Rodriguez’s performance was awesome, I thought she showed true emotion, and does have what it takes to be an action star, she just needs a better role
-The cinematography showing the beauty of the city of Tijuana, Mexico is something new for people to see and appreciate

The So So:

-The story is interesting, but it is a run of the mill thriller dealing with Mexican Cartel dealings, we get it that the Cartel is nothing to mess around with, but show us why in a deeper sense other than bullies

What I Didn’t Like:

-Since it is a run of the mill thriller, it really wasn’t all that thrilling mainly because I pretty much knew what is going to happen
-The gangsters were too stereotypical, and the fact that they all speak perfect English really loses the authenticity of it
-Lastly, with them showing the beauty of Tijuana, they also show the bad side of it, and unfortunately, with this film, it was more glamorized

Overall:

It was interesting, but it really didn’t give me the thrills I wanted. So in the end, it was whatever for me. The story seemed lazy, but it does make the character of Gina Rodriguez bring out her strong acting chops. I hope she can play a super heroine in the near future to showcase her broad talents. Until then will stick with this film with the lazy writing!!!
