Audience Reviews for Rojo Amanecer (Red Dawn)

  • Oct 04, 2009
    After the brilliant and highly controversial masterwork Canoa (1976), Jorge Fons decides to rely on his pair of balls and directs another engaging, claustrophobic version of the most tragic and infamous events of Mexican youth after 5 months of peaceful protests and political tension. Several versions are still being told, including one that mentions the cruel intervention of the CIA assassinating innocent young students under the totalitarian and governmental excuse that "soldiers only follow rules". With a budget of a simple breakfast, a tense perspective is directed in 1989, when soul injuries had not healed yet. 86/100

    Study the event behind the movie and then watch it, probably one of the most depressing endings I've ever seen but the movie does a good job at capturing the mindless and heartless actions that occured during the Night of Tlateloco, 10 days before the Olympic Games in Mexico City, 1968. The thing that really hinders the deep storyline is the acting, it suuucks. The first half of the movie, slow, but if you are familiar with the event it is a good buildup to a crazy second half of the film.
