Powerful performance from the leading lady
17 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not extreme, not as clever as it seems to think it is and not as funny either but it is certainly very different and tries very hard. One of the main problems is the CGI effects which overwhelm the slight, if effective, storyline. It is very Spanish and is bound to upset many with it's seeming misogyny and quite unnecessary grubby remarks by the police officers. This may all be part of showing how out of touch the Spanish police are but it grates a little today and reminds one of a 70's Hong Kong flick. Powerful performance from the leading lady but that's about it really. Has to be seen but it's only just above average, unfortunately.
