bad, sadly bad
3 February 2009 | by (Swansea) – See all my reviews

My theory is that they tried for a good Portuguese film and ended up doing a bad American one. Not even the nudity can save it. The rhythm is awful, I heard people snoring on the cinema, the acting is unnaturally forced and the plot tries so hard to resemble an American action film (with scenes in Afganisthan hahah)that it becomes laughable on scenes it wasn't supposed to be funny at all. And all the cars are Skodas!! What sort of hit-man drives a Skoda?! But José Wallenstein is very good as a drag queen and Nicolau Breyner does the job as an actor, no surprises there! I understand this film should be seen as a fantasy, the director's fantasy of making an "action movie", but it doesn't deliver anything worth the 5 euros you pay to see it!
