Critic Reviews of "Miss Bala"Rolling StoneFebruary 19, 2019
This Hollywoodized remake is mostly generic and uninspired, but it also proves that Rodriguez has the makings of a true movie star.Chicago ReaderFebruary 07, 2019
Miss Bala offers a self-flattering vision of American strength, as one focused gun-toting gal strikes a blow for her gender while cleaning up a skirmish in the ongoing war on drugs.ReelViewsFebruary 02, 2019
[A]lthough the lead character's arc remains troubled and conflicted, the ending makes her seem more like a superhero than the material warrants.Chicago Sun-TimesFebruary 01, 2019
Anyone thinking about plunking down the bucks to check out "Miss Bala" this weekend: You DEFINITELY deserve better than this.New York Magazine/VultureFebruary 01, 2019
The souped-up plot is certainly indigestible, and there's a steady stream of bad laughs, but something genuinely frightening comes through: a woman's sense of disempowerment by men on all sides of the law.Salon.comFebruary 01, 2019
Hardwick's film is gleefully entertaining in a B-movie kind of way, zesty yet also corny at times....For those who go along for the wild, undemanding ride, it makes for a good Friday night action flick.But Why Tho? A Geek CommunityFebruary 26, 2019
Now, I don't like the cartel sub-genre that has been forming...That being said, I give credit where credit is due...Unfortunately, there isn't much credit due here.The ListFebruary 25, 2019
A tough, female-led thriller from the director of Twilight sounds great on paper; unfortunately, the lack of nous in Miss Bala's politics runs the film smack into a big brick wall.Willamette WeekFebruary 25, 2019
The most memorable part of Miss Bala is when "Los Ageless" by St. Vincent plays during a party scene. That rules. The rest of the film, sadly, does not.Crooked MarqueeFebruary 19, 2019
Aside from a few stylistic choices and an engaging performance from Rodriguez, Miss Bala is a paint-by-numbers crime drama that lacks any real poignancy or cutting commentary.Film InquiryFebruary 17, 2019
An action movie without suspense, a message without meaning; Catherine Hardwicke presents a contrived Hollywood adaptation you can probably live without.Splice TodayFebruary 17, 2019
Yet another story of an American with no experience as a criminal going down to Mexico, battling toe-to-toe with dangerous, murderous drug dealers, and coming out on top.
