Good intentions, bad results
25 July 2001 | by (Milano, Italy) – See all my reviews

Young director Angel Mora didn't have much luck with his first feature film. Shot in 16mm with ultra-low budget and premiered at Sitges (Barcelona), Selva Roja mixes the Death Wish series spirit with the plotless action TV movies we can see every day. Anyway, this movie has some points of interest: the characters are better developed in the script than usual in this kind of productions, and one can see the good intentions that lie beneath Mora's work.

The actors don't help very much. Only veteran Antonio Mayans makes his character believable as the villain, but neither Carlos Reig nor Marta Gil are good performers. Therefore, the results are bad, but the movie is worth seeing. Rating: 4 out of 10.
