Miss Bala Miss Bala is a reworking of a Mexican film. Although the movies may share the same name, they have different agendas. The re-interpretation is a less harsh brew with many of the least palatable elements either scrubbed out or softened for adolescent consumption. The PG rating is an indication of how much the material has been neutered. And, although the lead character's arc remains troubled and conflicted, the ending makes her seem more like a superhero than the material warrants. The basic framework will be familiar to American audiences.
