Reviews: Miss Bala (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • [New] | Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Despite solid performances from the cast, Miss Bala is a lackluster action drama that lacks the punch that the subject matter demands.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Advertising Miss Bala as barrier-breaking and offering audiences a character they can identify with comes off as lip service considering how the filmmakers end up employing her. What better way to unleash the inner action hero than to stuff her into a series of evening gowns to win the beauty pageant?
  • [New] | Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Bala translated may mean ‘bullet’ in Spanish but Rodriguez’s gun-toting gumption cannot stop ‘Miss Bala‘ from shooting hysterical blanks all over the place.
