How far would you go to save your best friend? In the new film Miss Bala, which is spanish for Miss Bullet, A young woman battles a ruthless drug cartel to save her kidnapped friend in Mexico. Gina Rodriguez plays Gloria, a makeup artist visiting her best friend Suzu in Tijuana, Mexico. But then Suzu suddenly disappears at a nightclub. In the process of searching for and rescuing her, Gloria gets kidnapped and is forced to smuggle laundered money for a drug cartel. She works her way into the good graces of their leader as well as the DEA. Gloria must turn the tables on everyone to escape and navigate a dangerous world of cross-border crime. Surviving will require all of her cunning, innovation, and strength. The story had a lot of layers, the acting was solid and the action is intense! It does get a little slow in the middle, but overall this was surprisingly suspenseful! Miss Bala gets 4 out of 5 popcorn emojis from me.
