Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

An act of friendly generosity pushes a young woman to become a true warrior when she’s caught between cops and a drug cartel. Gloria (Gina Rodriguez of Jane the Virgin) visits Tijuana to help her friend Suzu compete in a beauty pageant. When an event at a club explodes in gunfire Gloria comes face to face with a cartel boss. When Suzu goes missing, Gloria gets help from her new criminal acquaintance… for a price.

While focused on finding and saving Suzu, Gloria is used as a pawn by both sides of the drug war. Trapped in the battleground between DEA and cartel, the unassuming young woman transforms into a heroic and extraordinary survivor.

Quotes

    • Gloria: You're not listening to me. I'm an American citizen. I know my rights! I want to be taken to the US embassy!
    • Brian Reich: The consulate already knows about you, Gloria. My name is Brian Riech and I'm an agent with Drug Enforcement Administration. Now these are encrypted radio cellphones that only Esparza and his people use. They can't be tracked. So you're telling me that he gave you one of these, and he doesn't even know you?

A bullet-riddled tale of unlikely female empowerment, Miss Bala toys with exploitation and social commentary but doesn’t have the ingenuity or nerve to successfully pull off either.

Gareth Dunnet Alcocer's script has a tidy, programmed feel that results in a feel-good version of a grim and sordid modern yarn.

Gina Rodriguez, who proved in Annihilation that she’s capable of something so much more addled and kinetic than this, does what she can with such aggravating material, but everything around her insults whatever emotional depth she can mine despite what she’s given.
