Very quick. Rrrrrrapidamente!
19 October 2013 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Comodines... What to say. If you are in the search for some police noir, or some drama, yo may not pick this one. Comodines is something else, It is the type of movie that will make you laugh, sometimes intentionally but most of the time as a result of very bizarre scenarios and strange acting. The Plot is about two undercover cops, Lorenzi (Calvo) and Parodi (Suar) who start working together as result of an unexpected situation and will have to discover the identity of a traitor working for the drug business. Nothing new under the sun... However the acting is unique, specially the role of Lizarraga (Victor Laplace) and Perez (Raul Rizzo), there is very good music, mainly 90's Argentinian Rock, neat photography, and well done FX S. Plenty of action in the movie, and forced situations that will make you feel watching a Simpson's episode mixed with the last Rambo film. Take my word. Highly Recommended!.
