Nice try!
12 August 2011 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect before I went to the cinema today, usually Colombian movies are all about the same old story's (drugs, guerrilla, rich/poor struggle and love triangles) It's also normal for me as a Colombian to expect lack of decent technical performance due to low budget editing, poor sound, horrible make up /costume and terrible cinematographic "ambientation", this as I said before is the usual.

The prologue and the first minutes when the script talks about the "justice and peace" law that my country has been trying to initiate make me really eager to know how this will be approached.

As the minutes pass by, this movie tries to leave behind all the stereotypes that I early described, but it swings and fails BADLY… strike one!

First thing you might want to know, is that this movie has the financial support of "Caracol" a large company in Colombia that has enough resources to produce a film with a high budget, of course for a Latin-American film not comparable with Hollywood.

Even though this movie has all the intention to get outside the label of the "Colombian" movies by putting money into better technical specs and by investing in a superior cinematography environment has major "flow bumps" by trying too hard to get outside this "usual" box.

Dialogues are ambivalent either to be truthful or to be understandable, that tells us that filmmakers thought about selling it to others Hispanic country's that might not buy the whole stereotypical Colombian slang that most movies from my country use.

Visually I've got to admit that its better than most of its type, but its unable to reach the benchmark that the "new wave" of Latin movies had established such as "The Secret in Their Eyes" "City of God" or "Pan's Labyrinth". Visual effects are absurd and ridiculous! Sound effects also fails miserable and takes you out of context so quick that I catch myself looking at my watch twice in less than a minute, Strike two!! The storyline won't capture the audience and all attempts to create tension or the emotional stress of either the drama or the action scenes are a sad joke. Strike out!!!

I'm really sorry that this movie sucked so badly. This is the result of investing lots of money in everything but a really good screenwriter and a decent education in film school.

The main story if developed properly, could be a success but the ambition and the pretentious form that the filmmakers approached it is a great disappoint.

My humble advice: Don't waste your money on this one.
