don't be misled... it's not that good
2 June 2006 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

If you like to watch (in the end) overtly sentimental dramas with average acting (pace other reviews) and with a storyline that doesn't exactly require a genius to compound, you will have a great time watching this movie. The plot is somewhat dull and way too familiar from other crime/heist flicks, except for one sole twist in it, while the music is totally conventional (by American standards), at points reminding of second-class thrillers without any real chance of creating suspense (and in fact this is more a drama-cum-crime flick than anything else). At the end sequence it really felt like watching a watered-down Brazilian soap-opera episode (i.e. it really wasn't as sentimental as it could have been). On the positive side, Um Tiro... has real smooth, Hollywood-style camera-work, but, even here, you will not find nothing out of the ordinary. And routine visuals cannot make up for what the film lacks in depth and imagination.
