Very good movie. the cover is misleading. this is not an action movie. The pacing of the movie is slow but handled quite well. Though i imagine a lot of idiots are gonna pick this one up looking for Desperado. Thankfully Antonio Banderas is nowhere near this film, instead you will find some of t...read morehe most accurate portrayals of Mexican migrant workers on film. and an interesting comment on the clash between two very different cultures.

This movie is a trainwreck. I sat with my finger on the remote button about to change the channel for the entire movie. I was unable to turn away. It haunted me for days.

Two Mexican laborers who lack control over their own lives seize control of a troubled woman's one evening in this flawed but ultimately powerful film.

Esperava algo totalmente diferente, li uma sinopse que dizia que o filme era bem violento, mas no final das contas só o final é violento. De resto é um filme lento, até porque busca retratar um cotidiano entediante, angustiante, de mexicanos buscando trabalho nos EUA.

Very low-budget yet deeply affecting. Realism at its most.

O filme, sobre a rotina de dois mexicanos, mostra de forma impactante a fúria interior de homens comuns quando submetidos a humilhações diárias. Lento na maior parte do tempo e feroz em sua essência.

j aime la mise en scene originale avec beaucoup des plans sequences tres longs et peu de dialogue
j aime pas le scenario pas assez developpe et le manque de profondeur

Den vil det godt, med minimal dialog, og ekstremt lange sekvenser. Desværre falder den bare rimelig meget igennem

Num período de 24 horas, o filme descreve a vida de Fausto e Jesus, dois trabalhadores mexicanos em Los Angeles. Como em todos os dias, eles sofrem grande pressão no trabalho. Mas diferente de todos os outros dias, dessa vez Jesus carrega uma espingarda na mochila.

A very powerful effort in neorealism follows two illegal Mexican immigrants in Southern California as they deal with discrimination and struggle to find success. A particularly potent climax makes this film one of the best in the school. Problematically, it will only harden the biases of both conservatives and social democrats.

I saw this in a Kino catalogue and I LOVE the title, so I checked it out on Netflix. And you know, for the first half-hour or so, this film was pretty compelling as nothing more than a naturalistic day-in-the-life of illegal workers on the edge of survival, and if it had maintained that tone of day-in, day-out routine exploitation, it could have been a pretty effective statement about illegal immigration. Unfortunately, it degrades into a half-assed mexploitation 'Funny Games' for the last hour for no reason that I can ascertain, and all the authenticity and entertainment value goes out the window. The film is so much more interesting when it's just calmly observing desperate people than when it's dealing with a message that's both shallow and overwrought using cheap shocks and mistaking tension for dead air. Don't bother.

2 clandestinos mexicains aux USA et la nuit ou tout bascule. Reche et beau, articule en plans sequences sublimes, le film d'Escalante (son premier!!) est un choc (litteralement).

Watched for an hour and a half just to see nothing.

Me gusto la primera parte de este filme que se enfoca en inmigrantes ilegales y su situacion laboral en Estados Unidos, luego esta se torna en la historia de un par de criminales que secuestran a una mujer, finalmente concluyendo en un desenlace violento e inesperado.
"Los Bastardos" no es una buena pelicula y tiene un ritmo bastante lento, sin embargo se ve que habia material para hacer una buena cinta si quizas el director hubiese escrito un mejor guion. Al final uno se queda sin mucho en que reflexionar mas que en la poca inteligencia de este par de bastardos. Esta definitivamente no es la siguiente gran muestra de cine mexicano.

This was very slow paced with lots of silences, but it was very well shot and had a great atmosphere to it. Some very uneasy moments as the film progresses culminating in something very nasty. Excellent performances, great film.

Muy lenta, sin trama y los personajes no tienen mucho que decir. El guion esta pesimo y la verdad siento que tenían para hacer mejores cosas.

As much as I would like to see Mexican filmmakers as a whole experience their own "ola nueva", this certainly isn't going to lead the charge.
