Manhunt among participants of a paintball game , including moving atmosphere by means of shaky camera
24 February 2017 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This exciting film contains stunning fights scenes and chases that illuminate the full-blown struggles with a plethora of engaging set pieces on the combats in which the action runs here and there . Exciting manhunt set against spectacular scenery in which a bunch of young urban workaholics sign up for a weekend of paintballing to have some adventure and to the adrenaline begins to flow . The team (Brendan Mackey , Jennifer Matter , Patrick Regis , Neil Maskell , Iaione Perez , Claudia Bassols) is split into two groups , each player is equipped with supplies to last the weekend , a paintball weapon , paint bullets and maps . The winners will be the team that wipes out their opponents and completes the circuit . As the snipers pin them down in a hail of paint . But the adrenaline-filled entertainment soon turns into a merciless chase , in which they become the prey and the hunter shoots live ammunition not paint . It is no longer a game ; but then commands the strongest law , and when rules have changed it turns into a lethal pursuit . Later on , the battle-hardened participants take on each other , including deadly traps , being ambushed , and killed one by one . Hunted down like prey in a deadly game , the teams face a desperate struggle for survival . There's nothing like a brush with death to make you feel alive .

Bloody and violently flick with overwhelming fights and nice production values set in deep forest , ravines , caves and obstacle-ridden trekking paths . It is reasonably well paced and turns out to be a long roller-coaster pursuit and relentless hunt . It is packed with noisy action , gritty adventure , thrills , violent shootouts and spectacular outdoors . The strong confrontation in which only rules the law of the jungle , is set against strong environment , mountains and hazardous trails . The movie has great action sequences well staged with stylish and vitality , thrills , and results to be entertaining but repetitive . Cameraman photographs a stirring atmosphere by means of shaky camera over shoulder and videotape . Several action scenes are outstanding with spectacular action images and thrilling fights . It also results to be surprisingly gory , including , stabbing , slitting , writhing in agony , along with a handful of extremely violent and breathtakingly gory scenes . It's a thunder stuff with an unknown cast , they spend most of it running through the forests , hills , mountains , being tracked , chased and escaped . Unfortunately, on small house screens much of the splendor will be lost , to be seen on big screen.

Colorful cinematography by Juán Azpiroz , reflecting splendidly impressive landscapes filmed in mountains of Castellterçol , Marganell , Collbató , Aiguamúrcia, Barcelona, Arnes , Tarragona, Catalonia , where the filmmaker also shot ¨El Bruc¨ . Furthermore , it displays an atmospheric and thrilling musical score by Xavier Capellas . The flick was finely produced by the chairman of Filmax Productions , Julio Fernandez along with his brother Carlos Fernandez as executive producer , they're two successful producers and experts on terror genre , producing a lot of hits , such as ¨The machinist¨, ¨Rec ¨1¨, 2¨ and ¨3¨ , ¨Fragiles¨, ¨Darkness¨, ¨El perfume¨ , ¨The nun¨ . The motion picture was professionally directed by Daniel Benmayor , though has some flaws and gaps . He is a good professional , a nice filmmaker who has directed a few films as ¨Bruc , El Desafío¨ (2010) and has been hired by Hollywood , where he has realized ¨Tracers¨ with Taylor Lautner and Marie Avgeropoulos . This ¨¨Paintball¨ is rated 5.5/10 , passable .
