I almost didn't watch this because of the dog-fighting but used the FF button through those scenes and the rest of the movie was interesting.

This movie is really great. I am a bias towards movies in Spanish, but many others seem to agree with me. The movie is fast paced and cycles through various characters and points in time. It starts out placing the main characters in a sticky situation and spends the rest of the film explaining how they got there. There is tons of violence and some dog fighting scenes so it is not for everyone. I never lost the intrigue and the movie delivers throughout. If you like movies like "Pulp Fiction" you will probably like this movie.

Very good movie seen from main characters points of view. I borrowed this twice because I thought the movie was only about dog fighting. The second time I sat all the way through it and found the movie to be very gritty and good. Gael Garcia Bernal is a very versatile actor. I loved Motorcycle Diaries and La mala educación(Bad Education-Almodovar)
