The Spanish wild man Alex de la Iglesia delivers a disappointingly well-behaved film with this sentimental comedy about a boy's reunion with his lovably eccentric grandfather.
800 Bullets has funny moments, but it also has a lot of drag time.
Álex de la Iglesia's charming comedy celebrates the resilient power of dreams, memories, and the movies.
Lazy slapstick, farfetched melodrama and some fleeting nudity add up to a film that will mean little to those who aren't devotees of the genre.
... a tribute to the magic of movies and moviemaking set and shot in Almeria, Spain (home to scores of sixties westerns).
Pays homage to the golden age of spaghetti Westerns and gleefully skewers the romantic image of cowboy righteousness that fuels American theme parks, country music, political campaigns and cigarette ads.
Strictly for anyone who ever wanted to know what it would be like if Chris Columbus directed El Topo.
Una delicia, para gastar 800 Balas de gusto en los festejos, por lo menos...
