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.
A gritty Colombian ganster flick! Perro Come Perro deals with temptation, betrayal and all those other goodies in between the drug dealing underworld of Cali, Colombia. An incredible cast of characters are thrown into this story, each twisted and two faced that ultimately leave you to decide who to root for, the title alone should resemble some of what I mean (Dog Eat Dog)The film's story doesn't stereotype Colombia, it shows us that this can happen anywhere and the decisions made in the film are the result of that. Director Carlos Moreno's vision embellishes the tough and hussle life of drug trafficking in a world full of traitors. The film has good twists and very violent scenes. Álvaro Rodríguez brings comic relief, who's mischievous character has great one liners. Look for him in "Plata O Plomo"(Nov 2008). Blas Jaramillo plays one vicious ganster and Marlon Moreno brings dilema & conflict to our main character.
Favorite Scene: Death by chainsaw.
