This film delivers on all angles and in every genre...
10 July 2008 | by desmondkalhoSee all my reviews

Found a copy of Chinango in an airplane. I wasn't really into the films the airline was showcasing so I popped Chinango into my laptop. What a surprise. This is old school gun-ho film making. Filmed entirely in Mexico City in what looks like 16mm, the style is 70's camp, yet the over the top action scenes and amazing soundtrack keep the story and visuals rocking. Using obvious low budget tactics it is profoundly admirable the epic scope of the end result. Raw and realistic martial arts, extreme Mexican/Chinese curious art department, Susan Gonzalez is racy in a blue bikini, pop art cinematography and some of the most absurd comedy, a fantastic fiasco and a golly good show! I have since passed the film on to another stranger on a train.
