Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It aims to do for wrestling what the "Magic Mike" movies did for male stripping. But imagine a much slacker "Magic Mike," without the fun or the social commentary.
Fresh: An insightful and wildly entertaining look at the wrestlers who ply their trade south of the border ...
Fresh: The film's most worthy detour is into the history and personal significance of masks.
Fresh: Their enthusiasm for the sport and its traditions is contagious, spanning the generations.
This doc grabs you by the hands and guide you through all of the do’s and don’ts of Lucha Libre and the one who’s doing the hand grabbing is mostly the most charismatic wrestler in Mexico right now: Shocker.
