In Rio de Janeiro, the Argentinean truck driver Javier Labat (Pablo Echarri) gets in trouble while playing soccer with a group of Brazilian workers in the harbor. He fights against the guys and is helped by his compatriot Tony Corsini (Mariano Martínez); he escapes with his truck, but is chased by the guys; he has a serious accident in Rio-Niterói Bridge, falling down in Baía de Guanabara with his truck. Tony brings money and dry clothes to Javier, forges his passport and they travel to Buenos Aires. When Javier claims his handbag, he find 5 kg of cocaine inside it and together with X, they dump the drug in the toilet of the airport, where they meet the sexy Brazilian Mariana (Carol Castro). They kidnap her and are chase by two detectives. Javier meets his uncle, who tells him that the transport company of their family had partnership with drug dealers; when his father found a loading of drugs, he hide it and had an accident with his truck provoked by the criminals, where his younger brother died. Now the criminal organization is seeking the missing drugs. Javier is chased by the drug dealers and the corrupt detectives, and helped by Tony, Mariana and friends.

"Peligrosa Obsesión" is an ambitious and full of action Argentinean production, having well choreographed fights, car chases and other clichés of the genre. Unfortunately the screenplay is a complete mess, with a confused situation and characters. The story is difficult to be followed in spite of being an action movie, and the motives of the characters are never clear. I am not familiar with the lead cast, but the Brazilian Carol Castro is gorgeous and extremely sexy; however the director was afraid, maybe for moral reasons, to make a threesome among Mariana, Tony and Javier although her relationship with the men induces to such situation. Pablo Echarri has a weak performance and Mariano Martínez has better acting, but the lead trio shows a great chemistry and is charismatic. In the end, "Peligrosa Obsesión" is a different and Hollywoodian Argentinean movie and a reasonable entertainment. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Perigosa Obsessão" ("Dangerous Obsession")
