Mortensen rocks. But that's it.
30 August 2012 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Being an Argentinian, of course I ran to the movies to see Viggo Mortensen in a local movie. I have to admit that I didn't even know what the plot was going to be about, so I was open to anything.

Although I use to hate the way argentinians act (it's like acting, here in Argentina, is not about performing fiction in a believable way but something else...), during the movie I found hilarious that Viggo, despite his slightly weird accent, was acting way more natural and believable than almost everyone else. Don't ask me why, I just feel proud of him. He rocks. Soledad Villamil and Daniel Fanego were OK, but Sofia Gala's performance was quite poor.

Besides the acting, I think the main ideas of the screenplay weren't well developed and got lost in a slow movie. It's a shame, because the storyline could have been something much much better, actually worthy of a decent cast and production.

So... I give it a six just because Viggo Mortensen's performance was amazing, but overall, it's a slow movie that could have been great, but just isn't, and that leaves you disappointed.
