Critic Reviews for El Niño

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

The makers of El Nino have carefully studied what goes into making a good thriller, and with this expansive, action-filled and socially aware take on a teenager's involvement in international drug smuggling, they've made it.

May 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Adroit veterans such as Tosar and Eduard Fernández (as Jesús' colleague Sergio) inject a layer of complexity in stock bit roles. It's the humanity in their performances that ultimately makes us care.

April 16, 2015 | Full Review…

Director and cowriter Daniel Monzón develops an intriguing cross-cultural romance.

March 6, 2015 | Full Review…

Ample action scenes inject the chaos and thrill of the drug trade, but the film struggles to maintain a consistent tone and the jarring soundtrack ultimately kills any buzz.

May 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Slick realism and a generally engaging plotline that only wavers when the pace is decreased and the inexperience of some actors involved is exposed.

Audience Reviews for El Niño


Involving and well acted but despite the levels of mafia and law enforcement depicted it feels only surface deep.
