No, Matando Cabos isn't the name of a dangerous Mexican dish, but it is a deliciously dark comedy from south of the border. The intricate plot involves two office buds who find themselves in a heckuva spicy pickle. When volatile tycoon Pedro Armend´┐Żriz is accidentally knocked unconscious, the guys kidnap and lock him in their trunk till they can figure out what to do.
They enlist the help of a retired--but loco!--wrestling star and his pint-size, razor-toothed pal named Tony the Cannibal. Things go even more horribly, hysterically awry when two other kidnappers get involved. This well-paced flick skillfully balances all the violence and wackiness, which includes switched bodies, failed ransom attempts, a car chase through a baseball stadium and a little romance. Even Tony the Cannibal gets some. Hot!
