Movie Info

Oscar Cabos, a multimillionaire tycoon, is being held for ransom -- only his captors have nabbed the wrong man. Now, to get their money, they must find the real Cabos -- which could get tricky since he's been counter-kidnapped by his future son-in-law and impersonated by his childhood friend (now his janitor), Nacho. To make matters worse, the two desperate friends who started this mess must rely on the less-than-delicate street savvy of former wrestler "Mascarita" and the pint-sized Tony "The Cannibal" to sort it all out.


Critic Reviews for Killing Ends (Matando Cabos)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

The Alejandro Lozano film may lack the writing finesse shown by the Coen brothers or Quentin Tarantino, but the Latin touch makes up for the rough spots.

Aug 26, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There isn't any deep message to Matando Cabos; it's pure entertainment.

Aug 25, 2005 | Rating: 4.5/5

A grimly unfunny and stupefyingly inept comedy.

Aug 25, 2005 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…

A Spanish-language black comedy with a frenetic style that plays out like regurgitated Tarantino and Guy Ritchie.

Aug 25, 2005

What makes this movie funny -- and different from all the pictures it may remind you of -- is the relentlessness of its characters' amorality.

Aug 25, 2005 | Rating: 3/4

Prominently placed in Jaque's bachelor pad is a poster for Down by Law, but it's abundantly clear that Lozano and company have been re-watching Pulp Fiction for the last decade.
