Movie Info

After being released from prison, former Mexican cop GARZA (Omar Chaparro) seeks revenge on SANTOS (Erick Elias). Santos has kidnapped his girlfriend MARIA (Aislinn Derbez) and framed him for a crime he didn't commit. With the help of his former boss CORONADO (José Sefami), Garza manages to escape with a tip about how to find Santos which leads him to San Diego in search of an "accountant." This said accountant is responsible for stealing $10 million dollars from Santos and may know Santos' whereabouts. When Garza arrives, he is shocked to find that the infamous accountant is a 17 year old American computer hacker named VIC (Joey Morgan). Despite an immediate disdain for each other, these two divided by culture, language and age, realize that Garza's low tech brain and Vic's high tech hacker skills may be their only chance at finding Santos before he finds them. The movie stars Omar Chaparro, one of Mexico's and the US Hispanic's biggest comedians and Aislinn Derbez; a rising star and Eugenio Derbez's daughter.

I only stayed to the end out of professional obligation.

There are laughs in this bilingual yarn, but the story grows convoluted, and Enrique Begne, the director, relies far too much on the stock cop-movie scene ...

Is it predictable? Oh, sure. But it's also fun, for the most part.

Apr 21, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Buddy action comedy from Mexico is convoluted, violent.

Apr 29, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Compadres feels less like an actual movie and more like a half-dozen movies thrown together, and absolutely nothing sticks.
