Lost Chance to Make a Good Movie
31 January 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 2004, Spanish military doctors Pablo (Alberto Ammann) and Diego (Antonio de la Torre) are in humanitarian mission in Iraq. After a terrorist attack on the road, Pablo and Diego seek refugee in a house in a small village. Pablo is forced to kill a teenager and his father in self-defense and he faints seriously wounded. He awakes in a hospital in Spain and soon he goes home with amnesia to be with his wife Ángela (Inma Cuesta) and daughter Pilar. A man called Baza (Karra Elejalde) seeks Pablo out and gives a contract of confidentiality for him to sign; in return, his family and he would be financially supported by the Spanish army. However Pablo blames himself for the death of the Iraqi teenager and his father and he wants to recollect what happens. He meets Diego and finds the truth about the incident. What will be his attitude?

"Invasor" is a thriller with great beginning and development, but also with awful simplistic conclusion. Daniel Calparsoro lost the chance to make a good movie, but decided to include car chase and an incoherent conclusion that spoil the movie. Pablo releases the video to the press and then he is hunted down through the streets with car crashes; his friend dies; he knows the names of the conspirators; but the fake footage prevails and he goes to prison in a democratic country in a ridiculous and pointless ending that does not work. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Invasor" ("Invader")
