Cinematic adaptation of the 12th-century knight-errant, assisted by his faithful friends , the cunning adolescent Crispín and the huge gourmandiser Goliath
5 April 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

The film begins in Holy Land , 1291 , during 3º crusade , and Acre siege , where occurs a battle between Richard Lionheart and Saladin . There happens an attack on a Muslim fortress , where are incarcerated Crispin (Lamana) and Goliath (Manuel Martínez) and Goliath , both of whom are freed by Capitan Trueno (Sergio Peris Mencheta). In the castle Trueno fights Sir Black (Gary Piquer) , his hoodlum (Ramon Langa) and meets his subsequent eternal dame , Sigrid of Thule (Natasha Yarovenko), an energetic Viking princess who takes part in many of the adventures of the trio . Trueno also meets an old prisoner , Juan de Ribera (Francisco Merino) , who gives him the holy grail . Later on , King Richard Lionheart (Luis Fernando Alvés) assigns him to return Spain with Sigrid and investigate strange events , including terrifying plagues and invasion by the Black Devils . In Spanish lands , Trueno , Crispin , Goliath along with the Arab Hassan (Asier Etxeandia) contend again their old enemy Sir Black supported by a nasty witch and other dark forces . At the end takes place a spectacular confrontation and surprising appearance by Morgano (Alejandro Jornet) and his flying balloon .

This medieval adventure packs noisy action , thrills , sword-cross and gorgeous outdoors . This is a homage based on popular Spanish comic books dealing with a 12th-century knight-errant who wanders the world fighting injustice and is accompanied by his faithful companions Crispin and Goliath . Capitán Trueno and his friends travel the whole world enforcing justice and freedom against bullies and tyrants, never using more violence than necessary . His eternal dame is Sigrid of Thule, a beautiful blonde Viking princess of Thule , Norway , she is Ragnar's daughter , an overthrown king . However , this picture doesn't follow faithfully the original canon , including several fantastic elements , witchery , demons and many other things that don't appear on the classical comic books .

Colorful and evocative cinematography filmed on location in Calzada De Calatrava, Ciudad Real, Lagunas de Ruidera, Ciudad Real, Castilla-La Mancha, Buñol, Yátova, Xeraco ,Valencia, Chulilla and Ciudad de la Luz, Alicante, Comunidad Valenciana . Atmospheric as well as thrilling musical score by Luis Ivars . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Antonio Hernandez . Antonio is a good craftsman , writer , producer and occasionally actor . Antonio Hernández -whose first film, 1979's F.E.N., is one of those never praised enough hidden masterpieces of Spanish cinema- is expert on all kind of genres , such as comedy : ¨Apaga y Vamonos¨ , ¨Como Levantar 1000 Kilos¨ , ¨Menor de Males¨ , Historical¨: ¨Los Borgia¨ , and Thriller : ¨Oculto¨ , ¨Lisboa¨ , ¨The city of no limits¨ in which Antonio proves to be a very courageous auteur . And he also directs TV series such as ¨Tarancon¨ , ¨Sofia¨ and ¨Dias sin Luz¨ .

El Capitán Trueno or "Captain Thunder" was the hero of a series of Spanish comic books, created in 1956 by the writer Víctor Mora and illustrated mainly by Miguel Ambrosio Zaragoza (Ambrós). The comics were published continuously between 1956 and 1968, eventually becoming the most popular Spanish hero comic of all times: at its height it sold more than 170,000 copies every week. The series was inspired by Hal Foster's Prince Valiant. The main cartoonists were the followings : Ambros , Fuentes Mann , Beaumont , Feliz Carrion , Jesus Blasco and Luis Bermejo . The series suffered some limited censorship during the dictatorship. Censors were concerned, for example, that Capitán Trueno and Sigrid were traveling around the world unburdened by matrimonial ties . Portions of the comic books have also been published in several Latin American countries, Italy , Greece, Portugal and France.
