A credit to Gibson, the cast is terrific.
In the role of the maraudersí vengeance-seeking leader Zero Wolf, Raoul Trujillo makes a tremendous physical impression on the screen.

Commonweal Magazine

The final sequence, the escape of the hero and his pursuit through the jungle by the vengeful warrior Zero Wolf (frighteningly embodied by a wonderful specimen named Raoul Trujillo) is at once the most conventional and most satisfying part of the movie.
