Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Shot on location in Mexico and a very drab England, Rabbit on the Moon wants to be a challenging thriller about international political corruption. Unfortunately, the story of Mexican graphic designer Antonio (Bruno Bichir) and his British wife Julie (Lorraine Pilkington), who are framed for the assassination of a government minister, fails to deliver. Jorge Ramírez Suárez's film ticks all the expected boxes - criminal cops, political kidnappings, seedy Latin locales - yet rarely convinces. Threadbare production values don't do much to help the director's cause, nor does a showcase of face-pulling overacting from Bichir. As the kidnapped British national, Pilkington is forced to spend most of the proceedings locked in a dingy room, tormented by the wailing of her baby - who shows greater acting talent than anyone else in the film.
