"Flying From The Hawk" must be slang in Spain because the movie has nothing to do with a hawk. With that out of the way, this film pretty much has nothing to do with anything.
An estranged couple is vacationing in Spain with their son. The mother stays in their hotel room while the father and his son go out shopping. The boy, named Billy, is stated in the film to be 10 years old but both the video box and his appearance make him about 12. What is completely obnoxious is the fact that his voice is apparently dubbed by a woman. I don't know it for a fact but it sounds like it. His whiny, girlish voice is so distracting that it grates on the viewer's nerves. That, however, is only one of this film's problems.
For reasons completely unbeknownst to me, Billy runs out of a store that he and his father are in. He then proceeds to wander around town and purposely hides from his mildly concerned dad. He sneaks into another store and overhears a couple of men talking about a boy whom they kidnapped and murdered. As Billy runs out, one of the killers spots him and the chase is on...and on...and on!
Billy and the killers run around the streets for hours and hours. The kid briefly befriends a dog until one of the men stick a knife in the poor thing. The final twenty minutes show Billy, his dad, and the killers standing around in a ravine doing a whole lot of nothing. Why in the world this movie was ever made will probably go down as one of life's eternal mysteries. 1/10
