Ugh I just saw another person complaining about the spanish in Drop Zone, and as a person who not only learned Spanish as their first langauge, but also studied it in school not out of laziness but for a better understanding of the language, I can assure you that it wasn't half as bad as some people are trying to make it to be.

There were some strange phrasing, but that like you said that's perfectly explained by there being tons of different dialects of the spanish language.
As for the accents not being perfect, I could be wrong but I assumed that for the members of Kobra spanish wasn't their first language.

Yes! Thank you!

Bane's supposed to be a Spanish-first-language speaker and so is his one henchman (who has one line). But the Kobra Cultist was an Anglo, who spoke Spanish (at least well enough to be understood by Bane).

Again, I'm not saying we didn't screw this up. I really have no way of knowing. But I know we tried very hard to get it right, and I'll admit to being a little stunned at the notion that we got it SO wrong.

So I appreciate the support.
