Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

One of the better crime dramas to come out of Mexico at this time, El Hombre de la Ametralladora features David Silva and Rafael Bertrand as a murderous villain and his evil sidekick. The two carry out a kidnapping, turning a woman (Silvia Fournier) and two children (Rocio Rosales and Lucero Taboada) into hostages. There is no doubt that the hostages' lives are at stake if ransom demands are not met. A tough, wily policeman (Fernando Casanova) starts to track down the kidnappers with every intent of foiling their plot. But as he gets closer and is most in need of back-up, it looks like any rescue is going to lie solely in his hands.
