Ponchao...funny, but ...
10 October 2013 | by rafael_2004See all my reviews

Greetings friends readers, in brief words will tell them why Ponchao is not a good movie, that might well be... The director of the film, Josh Crook does not provide us the best of his talent, which we saw in La Soga in 2009. Here we can just enjoy a good photography and a couple of shots that are worth mentioning. The script is bad, does not have a logical sequence and therefore we did not get to identify with the characters, something so important in the film. We do not understand the story completely by the deficiencies of the script. What has the movie are the performances, was worried about Manny Pérez, never imagined it as a comedy actor, but the truth is that I was surprised as well handled by the subject and how it makes us laugh with their excesses. The rest of the cast is fine, even the television characters that on other films had been deficient, here do well. Ponchao has good jokes that will make you laugh, but if you are looking for is a good film, not will find. If you want to laugh no matter the content, then Ponchao is an option. I'd like to see Manny Pérez a character such as the of the rope where they gave their best in every sense of the word.
