Santo contra el doctor Muerte Storyline

“Santo, the famous Mexican wrestling fighter, is an undercover INTERPOL agent whose mission is to discover the mysterious case of painting forgery throughout the Europe. While having amazing success in Madrid during his fights, he discovers that in Paris, previous and similar cases have been ongoing since many years.

So, he decides to go to the Louvre to have a talk with the curator who explains him those previous cases and the person suspected to have committed those infractions, sometimes in Moscow, sometimes while shipping the art pieces: the suspected criminal is a dangerous “doctor in art and chemistry” from Central Europe who uses, this time, a German art ‘restaurateur’ to accomplish his robberies.

This gang lives in a castle nearby Madrid where they’ve kidnapped beautiful women to use them as models. The models, trapped in a dungeon, are also used later for “scientific” purposes, killed and dissolved in acid. Santo and his partner, Paul, will have to go inside the castle, arrest the criminals and finish their job.

Santo contra el doctor Muerte Review

The film gives us a very nice approach of Mexican imagination in criminal matters and the ‘superheroes’ that are needed to solve the clues and enigmas. Santo contra el doctor Muerte is a nice movie which provides big entertainment from the beginning to the end, despite some script incongruities which make the story bigger than in what it should focus. The surreal and tacky scenes of a masked fighter going through classy European streets, talking seriously with art specialists and going around through airports and flying business cannot be missed!”

Shaun of the Dead Review:

After reading so much about the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, I decided to watch it with Shaun of the Dead (the first movie of the trilogy). Contrary to its world-wide success and my expectation this turned out to be an utterly boring movie. In my review of Zombieland, I have mentioned the fact that I am not a guy who is into vampire/zombie movies. But as Shaun of the Dead has Simon Pegg in it I was kind of enticed to see it.

Storyline

Simon Pegg Shaun of The Dead
Even Simon Pegg Couldn’t Save Shaun of The Dead

Now coming to the storyline and other aspects of the movie. All I can is, it is not at all an engaging movie. The direction is quite good, special effects are great as they need to be in a zombie movie. Music was a little dull to my liking, but certainly not bad at all. The acting is actually commendable by all the actors. In fact, for me Nick Frost looked way better than Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead.

The most unimpressive part was the plot itself. Shaun is a guy in late 20s. He has a girlfriend and live with his friends in an apartment. His problem is his ‘’dull and low life’’. He is not at all happy with his profession of a salesman in an electronic shop. He actually ends up breaking with his girlfriend. She accuses him of being unsporty and being a loser. However , things change for Shaun when the city is plagued by a virus that is turning people into ‘flesh eating’ zombies.

The plot revolves around the story of how Shaun tries to help his family and girlfriend escape from zombies. Eventually, getting his girlfriend back.

MY VERDICT AND RATING:

Well , with all the leniency in my heart. I could only give 5/10 to Shaun of the Dead. You guys must be cursing me after seeing that this movie has some great reviews and ratings on Google. But , as I always say some movies are difficult to judge from their ratings. Shaun of the Dead is one such film. In my view, please avoid this one from the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy”.
