Marcianos vs. Mexicanos (in English: Martians vs. Mexicans) is a 2018 Mexican adult animated science-fiction comedy film produced, written, and directed by Gabriel Riva Palacio Alatriste and Rodolfo Riva Palacio Alatriste. The film features the voices of Adal Ramones, Martha Higareda, Omar Chaparro, Angélica Vale, Eduardo Manzano, and Jaime Maussan. Produced by Huevocartoon Producciones (best known for the Huevos franchise), it is the company's first original project as it features an entirely human cast and original story.


A Mexican family was chosen by NASA to head to Mars to stop the Martian King's army from conquering Earth.

Por qué es una basura (Why It Sucks)

  1. To start in, the title sounds generic and forced, as obviously tells that it's an typical "Human VS Aliens movie".
  2. Some character designs look very generic, especially from The Martians who are just generic pink gelatin blobs with 3 eyes, as they are also copies of the Minions from Despicable Me without charisma.
  3. It has racist stereotyping for Mexico himself, mainly because in one of the scenes a scientist says that Mexican people are lazy and have cholesterol, as half the time the jokes tries to be offensive for the sake of being offensive.
    • There is one scene when they insults the US president, Donald Trump.
  4. All the main characters are cliched and stereotypical:
    • El Chacas is the dumb happy-go-lucky guy.
    • La Zafiro is like those neurotic housewives.
    • El Chino & El Cubano are the token minorities.
    • La Niña is the intelligent nerd.
    • El Frijol & Arroz are the troublemaking twins
    • Tlacoyito is the stereotypical maid.
    • Cumbias is the drunk guy.
  5. The ending is pretty weird with El Chacas marrying The Martians while he is an Human and also has a wife'
    • By the way, the film also ended on a cliffhanger: in the post-credits scene, the Martian King escapes from Mars so he plans to take over Saturn and ends right here.
  6. While the animation itself is smooth, it looks unfitting intro a Latin American cartoon and should be fit more into an Eastern European cartoon instead, but also some parts of the movie (especially inside the martian palace) has too many dark lights that you can't even make out what you're meant to be looking at!
  7. The story feels very rushed sometimes, mainly because the film uses many categories like Sci-Fi, Comedy or Musical at the same time that fails at being connected to the concept in the right place.
  8. The action scenes look overuse of toilet humor, for example, one scene involving the humans fighting the Martians with farts...
  9. The INTRO itself....seems similar to Star Wars, WHICH THEY CAN HAVE A LAWSUIT FOR THAT!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Passable soundtrack, especially the "Mexico Lindo y Querido" song.
  2. Like mentioned before, the animation is very smooth, despite not fitting well into Mexican animation standards.
  3. The Martian King is a very entertaining villain.
  4. Decent voice acting.

Critical Response

Marcianos vs. Mexicanos has received negative reviews from critics and became a box-office disappointment, with the criticism be the film's plot and humor, while the animation and voice acting was praised as some people called this one of the worst Mexican animated films ever made.
