The makers Cinco de Mayo: the Battle assume that the movie is interesting with a 45 min. battle, but it's not, it's boring. [full review in Spanish]

Loud explosions, bowed horses , swords colliding .. it's a rare thing that Mexican cinema brings all these elements in a credible way to combine an epic movie...[full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Cinco de Mayo: The Battle

½

Half of the movie is a excuse for a cheap romance between fake characters. The other half is gore, noise and chaos. The camera work seems to have been done by a guy with Parkinsons.
Overall, this movie is like a war: Feels endless, you don't know what the hell is happening, who is winning, and you only stay there to see if your side won.

½

An uneven battle epic that gives viewers a good lesson in what Cinco de Mayo really means but the chaos on screen makes of a disjointed battle and the acting lends no favors to the otherwise bland story.
