There's no warning for a shock.
4 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film just to see Ana de la Reguera. I'm prone to do that. I like someone and I watch everything I can find. This is one of those.

Leonardo (Jordi Mollà) and Carlos (Tony Dalton), along with Monica (the reason I'm watching) rob a bank. No flash - everything cool as ice. Later, Lese (Silverio Palacios) joins them in the escape.

Things got exciting later as money was supposed to be exchanged, and the gang got caught in a war between two rivals - The Texan (Celso Bugallo) and The Chief of Police (Oscar Alegre).

Double crosses and lots of shooting, with a sweet cross at the end.

A good action movie, but there was nothing special in it except Ana de la Reguera.
