Alfonso Zayas' Chico Pistolon.

An attempt to cash-in on Alfonso Zayas' success in the sex comedy scene, legendary Miguel Marte made Chico Pistolon (roughly translated as "Little Big Gun").  Chico Pistolon is pretty much like any other Miguel Marte movie; there is action & some melodrama going on, but there is a splash of 'comedy' thrown in and a little drop of 'sex' in it.

Action + Melodrama = Good.

Action + Melodrama + (sex) Comedy = Bad. Very Bad.

Miguel Marte, why did you have to make this movie for?!?!?!?!

In Chico Pistolon, Alfonso Zayas plays a stupid guy named Antonio who is a thief that has to holds unto his pants because he doesn't have a belt (seriously). When he's arrested with his pants down (again, due to lacking a belt),  he is then taken to custody but somehow he ends up getting mistaken for being the new cop in town. Antonio (now pretending to be the new cop in town) is partnered up with Ramon (Mario Almada); who is an old cop that recently lost his follower in a shootout. So anyway, Ramon hands Antonio a "chico pistolon", Antonio drives around awkwardly in Ramon's truck, they then they gun battle with drug dealers, and uuhh, well... It just gets more awful from there since the movie terribly tries to be funny and serious at the same time. Ugh.

What an epic failure Chico Pistolon is. It is so boring and very painful to watch since the movie tries to be funny so badly. Ah hell, Miguel Marte should of just forgot abut making a comedy movie and instead invest in another great action movie.

Avoid Chico Pistolon at all costs. It sucks so badly! 1/10.

Punks come out at night.

After graduating from Secondary school, young Eric (Rodrigo Vidal) decides to continue to study in a college in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. When he arrives in Monterrey, he immediately sees what really goes on in that city! Rival punk gangs fighting each other! Punks killing cops! Underage male prostitution! Everyone doing drugs! Eric will most certainly not survive in this city and he doesn't since the leader of the punk gang 'Los Chidos' pushes him off a tall building. When Eric's mother (played by the ever so attractive Isaura Espinoza) hears of her son's brutal murder, she heads out to Monterrey to avenge her son's fucked up death. She will kill all the punks from the Chidos gang!

Been dying to see Al Caer La Noche (aka "Late At Night") ever since I saw the trailer a year ago. That trailer was filled with punks using nunchucks, punks punching a priest (priest played by Sergio Goyri), and punks burning a man alive! Was the movie just like the trailer? Oh yeah, but not only was it sleazy & awesome, it was also a pretty serious movie. I felt so bad for the character Eric since he was looking forward to studying and while he did do that, he then ends up getting killed by a fucked up punk. Then when the movie ends, Eric's mother got revenge (won't tell you how of course) but she realizes even though the ones responsible for her son's death are 'punished', she still no longer has Eric. Eric is gone and nothing will bring him back. Ahhh, that is seriously heartbreaking!

I enjoyed Al Caer La Noche quite a lot. It's got a great plot, likable characters (even Los Chidos were likable!), and Isaura Epsinoza is excellent in this movie. Who knew she sang mariachi music so epic like. Check out Al Caer La Noche sometime. I highly recommend it. 7/10.
