I received tickets to an early screening of Compadres for the purpose of this review. All thoughts are 100% my own.
One thing I need to be clear about is that I am not a movie critic. This post is about my feelings and emotions about this movie.
First and foremost I am happy to see Omar Chaparro in a different role. We, Latinos know him well for being an excellent comedian with excellent movies. Now, watching him with a strong, more serious character it definitely show me how much talented he is.
My thought about Compadres is that this film is all about love and how much you can do and give up for the safe of this special person.
Garza (O.Chaparro) is a police officer and he fights the crime but when he finds Maria (A. Derbez) he feels deeply in love and he is willing to give up everything for her, career, friends and even himself. When Maria is capture by Santos Garza doesn’t care how hard the way to find her can be his first priority is getting to see her again. A long the way he will find people who will help him (J. Morgan, C. Sodi,) and he also will find great danger from Santos and his sidekicks (E. Elias, amount others).
With lot of laughter, good action scenes and love filling up the screen, this film will leave you with the sense that is it ok to do everything for the person you love even if that person is not willing to love you back.
I love this movie because is bilingual (I feel right at home)
I love this movie because is funny (is always good to laugh aloud)
