¨Countdown¨is an action-filled series about tough cops who face off nasty delinquents and heinous killers
This exciting series packs a moving atmosphere by means of shaky camera and videotape . It stars various Police Inpectors of a special unit against crime that take down scum and low-life criminals , these are the followings : the main star called Corso (Dani Martín) along with Mario (Álex González) , Leo (Bárbara Lennie) , Rocío (Teresa Hurtado de Ory) and Molina (José Ángel Egido) . They take on several dangers and risked assignments , confronting unsettling junkies , violent muggers , avaricious robbers , malevolent panderers , bank attackers , extremely villain mobsters , women traffickers , heinous druggies , kidnappers , ominous murderers ... . Meantime , it happens various loving affairs among them , including nudism , strong sexual relations and intercourses . In the several episodes there are different and twisted cases dealing with kidnappings , skyjacked , a grisly murder for racism and vengeance or when Corso's father is accused for killing , or when kiddies from an elementary school are abducted by a suspect boys abuser , among others .
The series formed by 29 episodes develop his own peculiar style , full of action , twists and turns . It is with plenty of suspense , restless movements , violence , and in documentary style with the camera over the shoulders . The action moments are compactly made and fast moving . The robbing , kidnappings , heists , and attacks deliver the goods filled with non-stop action , shocks , intrigue and suspenseful . It packs tension , plot twists , thrills , chills and strong love scenes for television , too . Series itself takes place from point of sight from cameraman and in a really dynamic style . The main starring , the leader singer from ¨Canto Del Loco¨ , Dani Martin , gives a mediocre acting , he is better singer than actor . He plays a two-fisted but unpleasant cop . The best acting is given by the veteran José Angel Egido as an intelligent and resourceful Inspector . Support cast is pretty good , there appears as guest stars , a lot of notorious secondary players , such as : Manuel Tejada , Fernando Cayo , Luis Callejo , Jesús Guzmán , David Janer , Vicente Romero , Juán Gea , Juán Fernández , María León , Jorge Bosch , Craig Stevenson , Luis Bermejo , Nadia Santiago , and special mention for Ramón Barea as Corso's father and Ana Wagener as Corso's mother . The series being efficiently written as well as produced by Pablo Barrera , Manuel Valdivia and Chus Vallejo . And this thrilling series was compellingly directed by Pablo Barrera , Sandra Gallego and Guillermo Fernández Groizard .
