"We all know that `real life` is different from films . .
This is why we go to see films . . . The best thing
about this film is the chaotic gun battle which we experience from the main character's point of view,
as she struggles desperately to avoid the flying bullets.
However the rest of film is disappointing . . . . . The film's efforts at realism result in humdrum ordinariness
and an everyday tedium . . . . . Badly paced, poorly
filmed . .with little exploration of character, . . . .
We know Mexico has its problems with its drug gangs .
and that political corruption is rife . . . just as
we know that the Mafia is a criminal organization based in some of America's main cities . . . The Godfather and Good Fellas are five star films They are compelling pieces of cinema on every leve. . . .Miss
Bala is not a five star film . Worth seeing as a documentary about the Mexican Drug war.. . . ."
