Whenever we speak about the "Worst movies ever made", we must include this gem; preposterous situations, laughable dialog, imbecile characters, a simply puerile conclusion and some of the worst acting I've seen; we're speaking of BAD acting, even for a Spanish movie. And when the only character you enjoy is a strabic psychopathic cop who shoots everything he sees, you know the filmmakers are in DEEP trouble. Jorge Sanz keeps mumbling as he has always been doing, Silke holds to her incompetence disguised as intended "feline" stoicism and Eusebio Poncela doesn't know what he's doing in each scene and in the movie altogether, and every female character, save for one, serves no other purpose than ending up as good-old sex & violence fodder. Most of this seems filmed and written by a teenager consumed with acne and strict dependence on cheap pornography: sexist, childish, and ultimately comical, especially when it pretends to be taken seriously. If they pretended the audience to burst with laughter, they achieved their goal; I'm just not sure that was their aim. And even if it were, the Art of film-making has somehow been outrageously offended all through the process.

That's the kind of trash this movie is.
