Critic Reviews for Voy a Explotar (I'm Gonna Explode)
This is mostly an unusual and imaginative, if overlong, love story.
Anger, rebellion, romance and despair are the keynotes of this freewheeling if self-conscious picture.
Naranjo tells his story like a real film-maker, refusing either sentiment or melodrama. But Godard looms large over the whole, as if Naranjo has digested so many classics that he isn't quite able to do his own thing without copious references.
Shot in the jerky, jolting fashion that is the default setting of so much television and cinema aimed at younger viewers, it's actually too familiar.
Audience Reviews for Voy a Explotar (I'm Gonna Explode)
Even though it features some great dialogue, especially as Maru (María Deschamps) narrates, this darkly comic Mexican take on teen angst makes for a really dull, self-important film. I was a teenager too, not so long ago, but I really can't identify with the "issues" of the protagonists. They're not troubled souls, as the film desperately wants you to believe, they're just whiny and immature brats. Frankly, a whole movie about Román's (Juan Pablo de Santiago) parents, played by Daniel Giménez Cacho and Rebecca Jones, would have been much better. Their presence, along with the strikingly beautiful cinematography, are the only worthy aspects of this so-called drama. In the end, I was almost tired from rolling my eyes so much. And they criticize me for not believing in Mexican cinema...
The movie has all the elements to make a great story, it looks great and has some very beautiful moments of true honesty where you conncect in a fantastically painful way with its characters - the problem is that there aren't enough of those moments and most of the time the characters are actually quite fucking stupid and annoying.
