Critic Reviews for El Niño

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

  • The makers of El Nino have carefully studied what goes into making a good thriller, and with this expansive, action-filled and socially aware take on a teenager's involvement in international drug smuggling, they've made it.

  • Adroit veterans such as Tosar and Eduard Fernández (as Jesús' colleague Sergio) inject a layer of complexity in stock bit roles. It's the humanity in their performances that ultimately makes us care.

  • Director and cowriter Daniel Monzón develops an intriguing cross-cultural romance.

  • Ample action scenes inject the chaos and thrill of the drug trade, but the film struggles to maintain a consistent tone and the jarring soundtrack ultimately kills any buzz.

  • Slick realism and a generally engaging plotline that only wavers when the pace is decreased and the inexperience of some actors involved is exposed.

    Involving and well acted but despite the levels of mafia and law enforcement depicted it feels only surface deep.
