Two Much Review


Bad
Antonio Banderas is an artist/hustler -- get this -- named "Art Dodge." Get it!? Oh, the laughs keep right on coming (not!) in this lame romantic comedy/con game when Dodge falls in love with two sisters -- and naturally invents a twin brother (Bart!) so he can have them both (while evading the Mafia boss he tried to con). Set on the beaches of Miami, this makes you long for the actual humor found in goofy romances like The Birdcage.

Vengo Review


Good
Set in Spain, Vengo is a standard mob story with a highly artistic twist. There isn't much of a plot, and what there is isn't that important. It is simply a frame within which to explore the culture of some vibrant Spanish gypsies. In fact, the actual "talkie" scenes almost become too much of a distraction from the rich portrayal of the community.

In Vengo, there are two warring families whom you can't tell apart until they are yelling at each other. You connect with Caco (Antonio Canales) because he is followed throughout the film. He is charismatic, even in arrogance. Everyone loves and obeys him, somewhat at a distance, as his daughter recently died. He is the guardian of his nephew because his brother shot a member of the Caravacas family, which wants blood for blood, like any Godfather movie, while Caco tries his best to make peace.
