Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: El Chicano represents a step forward for representation in superhero cinema -- unfortunately, its clichéd story is nothing more than ordinary.

Common Sense Says
Earnest but uneven Latinx crime drama is very violent.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that El Chicano is a crime drama with an all-Latinx cast that centers on a masked vigilante who seeks justice/revenge. It's very violent, with guns and shooting, lots of blood (spurts, stains, etc.), fighting, kicking, punching, stabbing, fires, explosions, car crashes, and more. A woman whips a child, and people dangle from nooses. Language is also extremely strong, with tons of uses of "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," the "N" word, and more. Some female characters are scantily clad, and there's flirting, kissing, and innuendo. Characters are described as drug dealers, and some cigarette smoking is shown. Despite its good intentions, the movie is convoluted and choppy and falls a little flat, but some mature viewers may enjoy it anyway.
