Promising and Intriguing Storyline, but Messy and Deceptive Screenplay and Execution
8 May 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The orphan Adrián Vega has the ability of foreseeing the future and is adopted by the bookseller Samuel (Héctor Alterio). He joins Samuel's group of clairvoyants called Utopia that protects people that will make a difference and Samuel teaches him how to control his power. Years later, Adrián (Leonardo Sbaraglia) fails in stopping a deranged Utopia member from exploding a car bomb and the wife and daughter of the police inspector Hervé (Tchéky Karyo) are murdered and Hervé is blinded by the glass window.

Adrián decides to leave the group, but Samuel convinces him to participate in his last assignment, saving the life of the school teacher Ángela (Najwa Nimri) that has joined an evil sect. Meanwhile Hervé is hired by Ángela's mother to brainwash her daughter and bring her back home.

"Utopia" is an unknown thriller with a promising and intriguing storyline about a group of clairvoyants, but with messy and deceptive screenplay and execution. The director Maria Ripoll does build neither tension nor romance, and there is no chemistry between Ángela and Adrián. My vote is five.
