WELCOME TO ACAPULCO reviewed
Freddy Beans right here with a evaluate of a kinetic action-comedy titled WELCOME TO ACAPULCO.
There will likely be a ton of poo-pooing this flick from that trailer alone. That’s a ton of B-level expertise to traverse. As one among our readers identified earlier, the one actor lacking is Tom Sizemore.
WELCOME TO ACAPULCO follows Matthew Sales space (Michael Kingsbaker) as he travels to New Mexico to introduce a brand new online game. After just a few drinks he wakes up in Acapulco, Mexico on accident. As well, he’s being chased by a mess of dangerous guys for a mysterious package deal he isn’t conscious is in his possession.
The trailer is precisely what the film is. An in your face kinetic, over-edited, action-comedy that makes use of all types of faces from yesteryear.
There’s a bunch of previous dangerous guys, Vic Vega (Michael Madsen), Eyeball Chambers (Bradley Gregg), Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin), and Paul Cicero (Paul Sorvino). They’re all after our hero Matthew Sales space’s particular package deal.
Get your thoughts out of the gutter!
There’s tons of loopy edits, voice-over narrations, together with pointless freeze-frames on this one. Director Guillermo Ivan throws all the things at you, together with the kitchen sink. That is guilty-pleasure model filmmaking, at its unapologetic finest.
The characters are all fairly cookie cutter. The dangerous guys meld into one group preventing for this thriller package deal, although they’re additionally all preventing each other. The hero of the movie isn’t our fundamental man Matthew. Nope. As an alternative, it’s Adriana Vazquez (Ana Serradilla) who actually wanted some again story to make her character make any sense. She is available in, John Wick’ing all the things in sight and is mainly thrown into the story so our weak protagonist has a shot.
The motion sequences are fairly entertaining. The motion is nothing to get too enthusiastic about, but sturdy sufficient to carry your consideration. That’s WELCOME TO ACAPULCO in a nutshell. It’s constructed on nostalgia and has a greater than anticipated consequence.
I wished to dislike this film. It’s fairly clear a few of the expertise was phoning of their work. Content material merely, to select up a paycheck. That doesn’t maintain the film again. WELCOME TO ACAPULCO is best than it has any proper to be. You can be smile in amazement that by all its many faults, you possibly can’t assist however be entertained.
When you don’t acknowledge any of the dangerous guys I discussed or their previous gigs you need to completely skip this one. Nonetheless, if like me, you possibly can’t assist getting sucked into B film with a meager plot and mediocre appearing. I’ve to say, I loved the heck out of this film below that context.
6 out of 10 alpaca’s favor Acapulco to the Andes.
The poster jogs my memory of WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S for no matter motive.
