Moving thriller filled with nail-biting action , cars , a love story and swiftly paced
24 February 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This exciting movie contains thrills , noisy action , intrigue , spectacular car race and a triangular love story . Stirring movie results to be an acceptable thriller filled with surprises , drama , twists , car pursuits and being efficiently realized . It deals with Navas (Albert Ammann) and Ari (Adriana Ugarte) , a couple of cunning thieves . While Ari seduces her victims , Navas and his colleague enter their houses, and they come in to steal from them . They eventually come across Mikel (Alex Gonzalez) , a wealthy young who works as a seller at a Jewellery and about to marry Julia (Maria Castro). As soon as they start their scheme on this objective to rob in the shop , they learn that Mikel was a famous race pilot with a dark past about an unfortunate accident . Then , Mikel and Ari fall in love and there takes place the classical loving triangle . Later on , Navas challenges an Argentinian contender for a cars race with unexpected consequences .

This is a thrilling narration of robbing and drifting auto racing with exceptionally fine camera work and great car chase sequences and crashes on the metropolitan streets . The picture mingles action-packed , drama , exciting cars pursuits , suspense , a little bit of violence and spectacular sequences though won't mean much on little screen TV . The picture turns out to be a crossover between ¨Tengo Ganas de Ti¨ by Fernardo Garcia Molina and ¨Fast and furious¨ series produced by Neal Moritz . The drivers, the cars and the races are the real stars of this movie . Pulse-quickening action movie but plenty of clichés and lots of dirty driving and heavier on crashes than coherency . All stunts were performed by authentic experts without people damage . The movie gives new meaning to the term ¨Tuning¨ and ¨Drifting¨ . Other chief excitements about the picture , will be in the intervention of a good plethora of Spanish young actors who realize professionally competent interpretations such as Alberto Ammann of ¨Cell 211¨ or ¨ Lope¨ , Alex Gonzalez of ¨Alacran Enamorado¨ or ¨X Men first class¨ and Adriana Dominguez of ¨Lo Mejor de Eva¨ or ¨Cabeza de Perro¨. Colorful and appropriate cinematography by Daniel Aranyó who has also worked in Hollywood as ¨Cheetah girls¨, ¨High School Musical¨ saga and formerly photographed ¨Invasor¨ and ¨Last days¨. The flick will like to adrenaline lovers and those young people looking for strong emotions . This is the kind of film in which the cars enthusiasts will enjoy immensely, it's a must see for cars fonds.

This is another superbly powerful thriller movie being compellingly directed Daniel Carlparsoro , the filmmaking is competent though the story eventually run out of gas . It was well realized by Calparsoro in similar vein to his previous film ¨Invasor¨ , another splendid thriller mostly set in Irak war . His best film was ¨Warriors¨ or ¨Guerreros¨ , another warlike film brilliantly made by Daniel and dealing with ¨Kosovo¨ war . Daniel was raised in Donostia , for that reason most films are set in Basque country . Daniel uses to work with his spouses , as his first wife , Najawa Nimri composes his scores and played in Salto a Vacio , Pasajes , Asfalto , A Ciegas ; and his second one , Patricia Vico , performed in La Ira . Calparsoro is an expert on action and violent dramas , such as : 2012 Invasor also starred by Albert Ammann , 2012 Invasor , 2005 Ausentes , 2000 Asfalto , 1997 A Ciegas ,1996 Pasajes , 1995 Salto a Vacío .
