Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Loosely based on real events, this harrowing, superbly made drama by fast-rising filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo (I'm Gonna Explode) is Mexico's 2012 submission for Best Foreign Language Film - rightfully so.
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
In each tense moment, Miss Bala has a lot to say in a few words.
Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
Terrifically choreographed, violent and amoral, but never wantonly cruel, Miss Bala is a knockout.
The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Fast and dangerous, Miss Bala is a hair-raising actioner.
Variety - Unnamed
With the blistering firecracker that is Miss Bala, next-gen Mexican director and AFI grad Gerardo Naranjo delivers on the promise of such well-respected early pics as "Drama/Mex" and "I'm Gonna Explode," revealing them as dry runs for this "Scarface"-scary depiction of south-of-the-border crime run amok.
