All Critics (56) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (41) | Rotten (15)

  • The form and content never really jibe, but this might get under your skin anyway.

    March 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Ortega's energetic style means the character's hedonistic crime spree is never less than luridly entertaining.

    January 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Too little of "El Angel" escapes a second-hand, been-there, killed-that feeling.

    January 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The full story has been sacrificed in the service of maintaining the balance between horror and fascination. And Ferro really has created a fascinating screen character.

    December 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie is made with skill, but it's so relentless in backing away from any psychologizing or moralizing - or just about anything else that might give us a handle on what makes this monster tick - that it finally feels like an empty horror show.

    November 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Ortega has a real eye for flashy, chaotic set pieces and a real ear for excellent Latin rock needle drops on the film's killer Scorsese-inspired soundtrack.
