Movie Info

Voodoo and greed serve as the catalysts for a wild ride through the brutal Columbian underworld in director/co-screenwriter Carlos Moreno's entry into the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. El Orejón may be one of the most notorious crime bosses in Columbia, yet despite his violent reputation, the agoraphobic don rarely ventures outside of his luxury high-rise apartment -- instead opting to keep tabs on the streets via the many telescopes that line his windowed walls. After his godson William is brutally gunned down, a vengeful El Orejón implores voodoo priestess Iris to put a hex on the triggerman. At the exact same time, miles away, small-town thug Victor sets out to collect some missing money from two scheming twins. When Victor decides to skirt the laws of the street and keep the cash for himself, the disastrous chain reaction caused by his decision gains so much momentum that it may be impossible to stop. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Dog Eat Dog

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

  • 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.

  • It's not rattling the genre.

  • 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.

    Jan 30, 2009 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…
  • Dog Eat Dog's choice of hyper-stylized, overexposed cinematography is ultimately more concerned with creating a mood of jittery, hell-on-earth claustrophobia than it is with forcibly exoticizing its crime-stricken Colombian setting.

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.
