1h 43min · Documentary, Action, Drama · 15 July 2016
The high-flying documentary Lucha Mexico is a journey into the vibrant world of Lucha Libre, where masked warriors fight mythological battles in the squared circle. With access to all the major Lucha promotions, directors Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz take you deep inside the Mexican wrestling culture, documenting its rich traditions and passionate style. At the heart of the film is second-generation luchador Shocker, the self-proclaimed "1000% Guapo" superstar who suffers a serious injury and faces the reality of life without wrestling. Featuring a cast of fan favorites such as legendary Blue Demon, Jr. the tragic Hijo Del Perro Aguayo and lovable mascot Kemonito, Lucha Mexico is a hard-hitting spectacle of high spots and low blows, and goes behind the mask into the heart of Mexico.
