Product Description

Terrorist organization Accion Mutante don’t want to play nice, smell nice, go on diets, do aerobics, wear designer clothing or drink mineral water. Accion Mutante just want to cause trouble!

In a future world ruled by good-looking people, a terrorist group of mutants led by Ramon Yarritu kidnap the daughter of Orujo, a rich businessman. Escaping from the police in their spaceship, Ramon tries to kill his gang in order to get ransom money. The trip ends abruptly when they crash in Axturiax, a weird planet where no women live.

Picked from obscurity by Pedro Almodovar, bravura talent Alex de la Igesia makes a startling directorial debut with a wild mix of high gloss and schlock. Starring sensational French actress, Fredweique Feder, with special effects from the Delicatessen team.

Format: DVD
This has to be the worst looking DVD I have in my collection. The video quality is incredibly subpar, with really toned down colors and inexistent blacks. Yeah, the movie is presented in widescreen, but it's not anamorphic. I would bet my life that this DVD was mastered from a VHS tape. I swear I saw tracking issues at the start of the movie. And the subtitles are non-removable (and just as blurry as the video itself), ...P>As for the movie, what can I say, It's great. It is better documented elsewhere and if you are browsing this item, it means you know what you are looking for.
My advice: get a multiregion DVD PAL-capable player and import the upcoming Region 2 release which is being supervised by Alex de la Iglesia himself. Should be great
Oh, and this is not a Mexican movie, it's Spanish.

Fiesta Infernale June 3 2003
By Wolfgang Bongartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is definitely one of the craziest movies i've ever seen.
A wild Mixture of Action and Splatterscenes, combined with crazy Humor, funny dialogues and very strange Actors.
The Plot is told with a few sentences: Women gets kidnapped by a group of crippled Terrorists, known as "Accion Mutante". On the way to the planet Axturias, the group gets decimated by their own leader. Finally all the survivors meet again - the final clash marks the curious culmination of a curious film.
In my Opinion, Alex de la Iglesia has done a very good job - it's an excellent film, a macabre Masterpiece beside the Mainstream.
Surprisingly, the Picture quality is amazingly bad, that's why it get's only 4 Stars. Nevertheless a "must seen" .
Spanish Troma movie May 21 2007
By Z. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Accion Mutante (Mutant Action, if you need the translation) is a sci-fi, action, comedy, gross-out, political commentary film set in some kind of future where good looking people who love working out and eating healthy have taken over the world and public policy.

Meanwhile, a terroristic group known as Accion Mutante has formed to attack this system. When their boss finishes his five year prison sentence and heads back to their base camp, they make a plan to kidnap a wealthy businessman's daughter at her wedding and demand a ransom of 100,000,000 ecus... whatever kind of money that is.

Unfortunately for them, as they are escpaing in their spaceship, their team begins to fall apart when it is discovered that one of them is a traitor. When they crash land on a planet with no women, the two remaining crew members seek to save the girl and get the money... and maybe not in that order.

The quality of the film is surprisingly bad. But even more surprising is the fact that it's still extremely watchable. It's clearly not the most enlightening film ever, or really the most anything. It's got a good amount of slapstick schlocky gross out gags and oddly misformed characters that production companies like Troma are famous for.

The political commentary is light, but it seems to be heading in the direction of people should be able to do and feel what they want and not be ostracised for being crippled... but anything intelligent really gets lost in the blood and guts explosions taking place.

If you've liked anything Troma-related, you'll like this... as long as you don't mind reading subtitles with your mindless gore.
Terrific manic comedy April 7 2014
By John M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Warning:This disc is Region 2 import. You'll need a "multi-region", or imported player for this non-US format. (Search "multi-region" turns up several less than $50.)
This first feature from Iglesias has action and laughs like a great cartoon. Dvd Extra shows the storyboarding and details of production. For years I've watched a fuzzy vhs dub, wish this was a US release.

Hot, dusty Mexican Mutant action! May 5 2003
By A. Bates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Well, this is one of my favorite Mexican films. I can't say that I've seen many Mexican films... in fact this may be the only one other than "El Mariachi" that I've ever seen, but that doesn't make this any less a great movie.
It's a difficult film to describe, much like "Delicatessen" or "Cemetary Man" is difficult to desribe. Basically, the plot revolves around this terrorist group, called "Accion Mutante!", composed of crazy people, all claiming to be mutants (not X-men type mutants, more like "your cousin joey that no-one talks about" type mutants"). They eventualy, and despite their own bungling, manage to kidnap a beautiful heiress, fly to another planet, and hold her for ransom. Throw in a few viscious, "Wild Bunch" style gunfights and massacres, cannibal alien hillbillies, and the obligatory love subplot, and you have a very entertaining film!
Overall, the feeling that you get watching the film is how HOT it must be - everything is always dusty, and all the actors are always covered in a sheen of sweat. The movie is very well directed and choreographed, especially the action sequences (the two main gunfights - one at a wedding and the end scene in an alien saloon especially). The actors are all pretty good, too - there isn't the amount of hamming that you often see in foreign films, or even in domestic genre films, for that matter.
It's been pretty hard to find in the US as anything other than a bootleg for a long time, so I was pretty glad to finally see it on DVD. The DVD isn't really anything spectacular, the transfer is pretty good, as is the sound. The English dubbed version is not very good - the actors doing the voiceovers sound very uninvolved, and there are plenty of times where you can almost SEE them reading their lines. The subtitles, however, are great, which is fine with me, as I prefer subtitles anyways. I would have liked more special features, too, especially some kind of commentary, but for now I'm just happy to have it on DVD at all. Happy watching!
