Enjoyable Thriller, Very Scary and Fast-Paced .

"Miss Bala" is a formulaic action-revenge film that uses a good actress like Gina Rodriguez (TV's "Jane The Virgin") and wastes her talent on a flimsy script.

The movie was overall entertaining, tense, and enjoyable for the family to go enjoy.

Unpredictable and unusual story.

Then there is the heroine herself, who the trailers portray as struggling to play both sides in order to survive, but in the reality she really doesn't do much to live up to the title, and the twists are predictable.

It didn't end how I wanted it to, but it was still very good and worth watching!

Just awful and boring.

There are so many elements of this movie that make it awesome and entertaining!

And yes, Anthony Mackie playing yet another hard-nosed authority figure feels a little tiresome and typecast (does Runner Runner, Triple 9, and Love the Coopers ring a bell?

More believable and more enjoyable than the run of the mill junk killing machine films of yesteryear.

But still, the movie was exciting and fast-paced!

Slow, bloated, and misrepresented .

Little action and pointless scenes make this film plain.

The trailers presented this as a much more action packed film, which is the exact opposite of what it is.

The action is honestly rather boring and the whole film is pretty predictable.

This movie was super predictable from start to finish.

I took my wife to see this movie and we both enjoyed it.

There were a lot of intense action sequences.

Amazing, suspenseful and rewarding.

This movie was so good- very entertaining, a lot of action, and Gina was beyond amazing.

Not great, but entertaining.

Worth watching .

This movie is very well paced and entertaining.

I'm wasn't aware that this was a remake so I have no bias here, and on its own I found the movie excellent with an engaging drama, suspense, and some decent action.

The movie was entertaining, and not predictable as some have suggested.

The story was bland, lacked a lot of substance, it felt very Taken like.

She's remarkable and a true compelling story loved it!

And I enjoyed it!!!!

I'm writing as a person who enjoys movies and not as a critic that looks for technically, this was a good enjoyable movie.

A simple straight forward film full of Hispanics, and party music, but absent of substance and the element that makes a film worth watching.

The transitions are boring.

This Japanese Government Propaganda Organ begins MISS BALA by caricaturizing Leader Trump as pictured in the Fake News reports of him barging into Beauty Pageant Women's Rooms, as well as rigging the final Pretty Contest results.

The way she developed her part, from a very feminine make up artist to a very strong and determined women was riveting.

If you are that bored, better check out some classics you might have missed or revisit your favourites.

Enjoyable .

Gloria Meyer (played by the engaging Gina Rodriguez) goes to visit her best friend in Tijuana only to get embroiled in the Mexican cartel.

I enjoyed it and would probably buy it on DVD.

Suspenseful and action packed while Gina Rodriguez delivers with the performance.

The movie has got a lot of plot errors and pacing issues, but it delivers some exciting action scenes.

Entertaining movie to watch .

The action is predictable and too standard.

It was an entertaining action movie.

It just starts a little slow, and leaves us wanting just a bit more by the end, with a few unanswered minor questions.

Although the plot is cliche, the film is still considered enjoyable.

Kinda dull .

The story itself was decent and suspenseful.

It is a slow & ride (Garza Car Club) into the ending as the love story takes place & "What Hollywood calls a cute meet.

Better call an AC guy since the heat is unbearable.

The action and shootout sequences were intense and exciting.

This film deserves a much higher score than the current 5.2. I didn't expect much going into this, but I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

Mildly Entertaining SoCal/Mexican Crime film .

Predictable from go .

This movie was entertaining, suspenseful, tense at times and had you torn as to which way you wanted the movie to end.

I rarely watch films of this nature because they turn out to have a dull story-line and are mostly kill or be killed.

I was on the edge of my seat with all the suspense, superb direction and acting - even though it was tastefully done.

This is fantastic fast paced thriller.

Especially, the shootout sequences were loud and intense.

Miss Bala is an entertaining action thriller that shows Gina Rodriguez can take on an action heroic character trying to save her friend.
