News & Interviews for Dog Eat Dog
Critic Reviews for Dog Eat Dog
With a background in television and music videos, director Carlos Moreno's feature debut is mighty shallow. Its bloodshed carries little weight; the sporadic humor is cheap and casually racist.
Resembles a Tony Scott movie without any of his intelligence and cinematic invention.
A dark crime thriller low on suspense, but at least it manages to be moderately compelling, invigorating and somewhat of a guilty pleasure, as long as you don't have a weak stomach for violence.
Audience Reviews for Dog Eat Dog
Bloody and slow paced gangster movie. Some interesting atmospheres but the themes are overused and consequently lacking in interest and originality. the performances are quite good, except for an exaggerated Blas Jaramillo, too bad because this was his last one.
This is one of those instances on RT that truly perplexes me. The low ratings by critics is wholly undeserved. Some of these few critics put Carlos Morneo down as if he wasn't up to it in this movie; but, it's gritty, captivating and has its twists and turns. I couldn't stop watching it, and was completely captivated. Ignore these few shallow people. Look this up on imdb.com and read the reviews there. Don't let these few here screw up your opportunity for a creative, unique experience.
A small, slow plot like so many independent films. And lot like "Secuestro Express" in content, setting and camera style but without as much social commentary. This movie differs in that it tells much of its story visually rather than relying as heavily on dialog as other low budget movies.
