Reviews

Peter Howell Toronto Star | February 02, 2012

Naranjo is unflinching in his determination not to serve up mindless entertainment.

Walter V. Addiego San Francisco Chronicle | January 26, 2012

Maybe the film doesn't add up to quite as much as its talented director, Gerardo Naranjo, seems to have hoped, but it is tense and propulsive.

Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer | January 26, 2012

Miss Bala is full of virtuoso single-take tracking shots and over-the-shoulder perspectives that effectively convey a sense of menace and momentum.

Loren King Boston Globe | January 26, 2012

Naranjo offers a grim subject with neither flash nor sentiment. It is a sober film done with style.

Kyle Smith New York Post | January 20, 2012

This strange and eerie noir is more a collection of knockout scenes than a fully realized story.

Betsy Sharkey Los Angeles Times | January 19, 2012

There is a larger message to be found here, but it never derails the taut vintage thriller that's been constructed.
