The blackly humorous story of Perdita and Romeo, two wild lovers who travel to Mexico and kidnap a wealthy American couple. Setting out for Los Angeles with a package of illegal goods, the renegades are both robbers and seducers, with charm so overwhelming that their so-called victims don't want to leave.
- "If you want to go on a wild as f**k ride of pure, uncut cinematic lunacy then you absolutely must add Perdita Durango to your collection; it’s primal, violent, Satanic, and irresistible… a wickedly winning combo if ever there was one!"
- "Probably THE best Rosie Perez action flick EVER made."
- "In his English language debut, Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia has made one of the best films of the year. Perez finally has a part to unleash her primal energy, and she’s never been better. "
- "Perez is great here, seductive and appealing but dangerous and unpredictable. She’s a great choice for the part and she makes it her own. Bardem, however, is the real star of this show. The man commits like few before him, really throwing himself into the part and as charming as he is frequently terrifying."
