Hollywood as can be
Its always nice when Hollywood picks up social themes which are not among the headlines. This movie deals with the deaths of assembly line working women in the free-trade zone of Mexico. The main actors are therefore Jennifer Lopez and Antonio Banderas to make it believable but the movie gets really hard to bear at times. Basically it tries to hard to implement more drama in the story than it has to offer, so you get a poor indio women fleeing her rapist from her grave, a reporter with a dramatic back story from Mexico and a lot of fire, explosions, mix-ups and evil gangsters in government conspiracy plots. It soon gets too much and just piles up till the end. After all the movie is so busy with creating drama that the plot holes get unbearable. So its a conspiracy, but why are there piles of dead women on a scrapyard never to be mentioned again?? Its a nice try but I think a little more reality and less drama would have made it much easier to bear.
