Starsky & Hutch or How to Destroy the Atomic Bomb
23 March 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Only from the credits at the end did I find out that this film was based on true events. Back in the late '80's, Spain seems to had been working on nuclear plans, and weren't for some coup d'etat and American intervention, Spain would've had the atomic bomb.

I know this might sound a bit like your average political thriller, but with 'Muertos Comunes' it wasn't the case. Throughout the film I couldn't help sneering, grinning, and even laughing out loud: it's a tongue-in-cheek cinematic experience, paying homage to both 70's B-series action flicks and to the politics-imbued American sci-fi's of the '5o's. We're dealing with Cold War here, so everything in this film must be and is cool: from the main character (an illiterate yet determinate mustache-wearing detective whose hobbies are cognac, comic books, and lame pick-up lines, who still stays at his mother's and refuses to marry his long-time girlfriend) to the whole setting: a sun-scorched traditional Catholic Spain dealing with new technologies such as pagers and the atomic bomb.

Very enjoyable for a political satire with policier and conspiracy theories undertones.

My vote: 7/10
