Chilean writer/director Ernesto Díaz Espinoza’s trash tribute pays homage to Peckinpah, Tarantino and Rodriguez, without doing justice to any of them.

It doesn’t even make sense, combining retro Grindhouse stylings with modern GTA missions.

Light on thrills, gore, invention – even machine guns – the result barely limps to feature length.
