Miss Bala

Critics Consensus

Miss Bala suggests Gina Rodriguez has a future as an action hero; unfortunately, it also demonstrates how hard it is to balance set pieces against a compelling story.

  • This Hollywoodized remake is mostly generic and uninspired, but it also proves that Rodriguez has the makings of a true movie star.

  • Miss Bala offers a self-flattering vision of American strength, as one focused gun-toting gal strikes a blow for her gender while cleaning up a skirmish in the ongoing war on drugs.

  • [A]lthough the lead character's arc remains troubled and conflicted, the ending makes her seem more like a superhero than the material warrants.

  • Anyone thinking about plunking down the bucks to check out "Miss Bala" this weekend: You DEFINITELY deserve better than this.

  • The souped-up plot is certainly indigestible, and there's a steady stream of bad laughs, but something genuinely frightening comes through: a woman's sense of disempowerment by men on all sides of the law.

  • Hardwick's film is gleefully entertaining in a B-movie kind of way, zesty yet also corny at times....For those who go along for the wild, undemanding ride, it makes for a good Friday night action flick.
