El Justicero #

Released 4/13/1967

Description: A shockingly irreverent follow-up to the rural austerity of Barren Lives, dos Santos’ Godardian social satire owes more than a nod to the self-conscious antics of the French Fresh Wave. The pampered son of a general, El Justicero is a hipster playboy who fancies himself a James Bond/Jean Paul Sartre urban hero. “Archetypical” yet “full of contradictions,” he sees that justice is achieved for the disadvantaged while taking advantage of certain bourgeois perks. His exploits are closely followed and eventually directed by his biographer who decides a movie is not only more lucrative than a book, but it gives him the luxury of reviewing previous scenes. Unlike Bond, El Jus eventually experiences an awakening which threatens to compromise the entertainment value and glamour of his life story. - Harvard Movie Archive

Drillbit Taylor Reviews:

I recently went to see the sneak preview Tuesday, going in I thought it'll be so-so in the humor department. This isn't a smart create you think comedy, but it had heart in the right territories and it was very funny none the less. It has a several plot holes, but nothing too obvious to the viewer. I really enjoyed watching the characters, Owen Wilson is really nice at these types of comedies. In the end though I've got to tell that the children they casted really stole the show. They fit their roles perfectly.In the end all I can tell is that this film is redemption for geeky new meat everywhere.


I love IMDb.com. I just came here (after seeing the movie) and saw that John Hughes (using a pseudonym) was one of the writers of this movie. That makes sense, because the film covers the awkwardness, danger and constant potential for life-ruining humiliation that is freshman year high school. Being "skinny, afraid and lonely", as Drillbit Taylor puts it.One of the another writers is the nice Seth Rogen, co-writer & co-star of "Superbad" and co-star of "Knocked Up".Owen Wilson is funny, sexy and heartwarming in this role. The trio of geeky lads who hire Owen as their protector are all played by unbelievable young actors. The Apatow organization seems to have a genius for finding nice and funny teen actors. I was especially impressed by Alex Frost (he plays the bully) who I think has stardom in his future.The tiny roles of the movie are filled by standup comics and "The Everyday Show" alumni. Nice talent all around.The film is not perfect. It's front-loaded -- meaning the first half has so many laughs you can't hear all the lines for the laughter. Then it suddenly slows down in the second half. It's still interesting -- just not as funny. And when you receive to the violent fighting, that dries up the laughs.Overall though, any movie from the Apatow organization is going to be 6 times funnier and more inventive than the average film comedy out there. So go have some laughs.


It's been a while since I wrote one of these but thanks mainly to Owen Wilson for other hilarious (yes and interchangeable) role, this film was funny enough to receive motivated once again.The premise is obviously cute easy and has been done before in both bodyguard and teen films (Superbad and My Bodyguard come to mind...duh). The beauty of this film it combines the two categories with Owen Wilson's natural comedic talent and three capable younger actors resulting in a mostly funny comedy that is special from the rest.There was an interesting metaphor contained in one of the trailers showing Drillbit saying the children he's taking them under his wing. The reason I tell this is interesting is because this is how it mostly worked for the movie's humor. It took almost 15 mins for it to really receive started. Don't receive me wrong, there were some funny parts that didn't involve him like the bodyguard interviews (gotta love Frank Whaley's cameo), Ryan's rap off with the bully and the two hitting every another but the largest laughs for me were from Owen Wilson. To be fair though, Owen was at his greatest when the children were involved. I loved the method he approached this "job" with one part seriousness, one part B.S. and two parts hilarious. I was dying when he was holding up that kid's burning popsicle stick project up to the sprinklers and just the general training conversations just to illustrate that recipe.Overall, this story was nothing brilliant but as in You Me and Dupree, Owen Wilson manages to take something that should be rather mediocre turning it into an enjoyable and endearing comedy. True, he really didn't do it by himself as I'd test to create you believe. I mean the method the bullies were portrayed was a very convincing and effective factor that helped sell this one as well and who should forget the lovely Leslie Mann in an interesting and sometimes funny romantic subplot. To sum it all up, if you liked the trailers you're going to like this movie. And a scream to all the folks who replied in my thread that convinced me to go myself. You were right.
