Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's an adventure story that could be called a contemporary picaresque if it weren't so deadly serious, and might be called fantastical if it weren't loosely based on a true story of a former Miss Hispanic America. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jan 19, 2012

Fresh: Mexico's 2012 submission for Best Foreign Language Film - rightfully so. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jan 18, 2012

Fresh: An urgent dispatch from the sidelines of the drug war that consumes our southern neighbor. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jan 19, 2012

Fresh: There is a larger message to be found here, but it never derails the taut vintage thriller that's been constructed. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jan 19, 2012

You got to see this!!!

This film is actually amazing.. I did not expect this… Very well done!!!

Miss Bala ~ A must see

Director did a great job telling a story of the Mexican drug war and its impact on some innocent people. Makes "Safe House" look like child play. The villian was excellent by the way & so was Stephanie Sigman. Highly recommended...

Miss Bala

This Film encompasses all the appeal and emotion of a first class original action packed drama. I dont watch movies twice, but this one will be an exception. A sequel is called for.
