While Donald Trump is undergoing heart surgery, a portal to another reality opens. All the Latino immigrants are teleported to the Mexico-United States border, which is divided by an enormous wall. A hilarious war breaks between the stereotypical Latinos and a Trump-like mecha robot that is trying to get them to pay for the wall.
It was surprising to find a short about Trump's projected polices with Mexico made so soon and made so well. MAMON got me laughing out loud more than once, and I don't have an easy laugh.
The film is set in an imaginary post-Trump period, in which the wall with Mexico is already built, and the deportations have started. The main vigilante of the wall is a Trump-alike robot moved by Trump himself, the very nasty Trumpinator! Now the time has arrived to fight back, and we witness a total upheaval of the Mexicans to revert the situation. Like the revenge of the nerds but without the nerds.
MAMON is well-filmed, it has a great atmosphere, good comedic actors, and very cool visuals. The sci-fi part is really well made. The Trumpinator robot is hilarious, the space-ship arriving to help the Mexicans is just hilarious, the final fighter is hilarious, and the border control post is just funny.
MAMON doesn't preach anything, is just a reaction to the insult and vilification of the Mexicans done in the best humorous way. It's all done with a light heart, so take it that way. I don't think the film offends anybody, because those insulted have been mostly the Mexicans. Yet, they got a good revenge with the title of the film...
