Neon Flesh is a misguided attempt to produce a gritty gangster comedy. This Spanish film is not really bad, but very far from reaching the potential of its premise and its cast. Its humour and tone are uneven, and there are problems with the writing and with a number of story elements. […]
A very enjoyable comedy-drama about a casting show and the dreams and hopes of the girls involved.

Todo el poder is a Mexican satire dealing with the high levels of crime and corruption in the country. The film benefits from a great cast, and the writing employs dark humour as well as farcical and absurd elements. But the film ultimately is too muddled and not narrated tightly enough, so it never lives up to its full potential. […]
A German-Mexican co-production that, at two hours running-time, has very little to offer that could be described a “memorable”. With nice cinematography and very good acting, this is not a bad film, but most certainly nothing special.
