Highly Suspect Reviews: Miss Bala

Director Catherine Hardwicke brings us this remake of a Mexican film featuring Gina Rodriguez as an innocent caught up in Tijuana between the charismatic leader of a drug cartel who has abducted her (Ismael Cruz Córdova), a super-corrupt police force, and the slimy DEA who don’t care if she gets hurt or if she’s guilty or not as long as she helps them. Eventually, she’s gonna blow and start shooting folks, that much is sure. But does it happen soon enough? Listen to the review with Chris, Lara, and Aaron to find out.
