Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie's main problem is that the protagonist -- the dead head -- is a bore."
‑ Nora Sayre, New York Times
"Intense gruesome crime melodrama that's set in modern Mexico."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Em seu filme mais pessoal, Peckinpah cria um anti-herói trágico que, através de cotidiano repleto de crueza e miséria, alcança uma improvável redenção através de suas ações e intenções tortuosas."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Oates' antihero is among the loneliest men in the cinema, and one of its greatest performances."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A profound existential adventure, twistedly comic and openly bitter, brought to life by those two maniacs: Peckinpah and Oates."
‑ Louis Black, Austin Chronicle
"The movie is some kind of bizarre masterpiece. It's probably not a movie that most people would like, but violence, with Peckinpah, sometimes becomes a psychic ballet."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"For Peckinpah, nothing is so ennobling as to face death in Mexico for the right reason."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"It stands as one of Peckinpah's more daring films."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Here's your head's up: Trashy and savagely comic, Alfredo Garcia is a voyage into the twisted head of one of Hollywood's most uncompromising directors."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"It plays like a pulp noir thriller by way of a road movie of the damned, marinated in mescal and left to rot in the desert sun."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"Fermented in a tragic romanticism placed firmly in a no-man's land between liberation and capitalism, Sam Peckinpah's 1974 thriller is a film that sticks in your mind's eye like a lingering sun spot."
‑ Cole Smithey, Daily Radar
"Fermented in a tragic romanticism placed firmly in a no-man's land between liberation and capitalism, Sam Peckinpah's 1974 thriller is a film that sticks in your mind's eye like a lingering sun spot."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"For something so bleak, so purposely revolting and unsentimental, there are reservoirs of profound poetry in Alfredo Garcia, the only film that Peckinpah ever considered completely his own."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
