Warfare and thriller movie filled with suspense , drama , tension and rapidly paced
8 September 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Frenetic action , chases , car crashes , shootouts , explosions and thrills in Irak war and Galicia . This stirring as well as fast-moving movie deals with Pablo (Alberto Ammann) , he is a Spanish army doctor sent on a peace mission to Diwaniya , Iraq , where is the Spanish base during the 2004 war . In a routine out his convoy is attacked in the desert . He and his friend Diego (Antonio De La Torre) manage to take refuge in an empty house , but they are caught in a conflict that puts their lives in danger . Wounded Pablo then returns A Coruña , Spain , and finds his wife (Imma Cuesta) and son .

This exciting movie contains thrills , noisy action , intrigue , spectacular car pursuits , war and intense drama . Warfare movie along with splendid thriller filled with surprises and flashbacks and being compellingly realized . Other chief excitements about the picture , will be in the intervention of a good plethora of Spanish actors who realize professionally competent interpretations such as Alberto Ammann of ¨Cell 211¨ , ¨Antonio De La Torre of "A Sad Trumpet Ballad" , Imma Cuesta of ¨Red Eagle¨ and Karra Elejalde of "Timecrimes" . The moving story and exciting screenplay was well written by Javier Gullón and the same Daniel Calparsoro , being based on Fernando Marías' novel . Although clichés run through-out , the enjoyable tale is enhanced for interesting moments developed among main characters and especially on their intense relationship giving place the upsettings moments when the main protagonists are attacked , pursued and besieged in Irak . Thrilling musical score by Lucas Vidal , a magnificent young composer who has composed for Hollywood , such as ¨Fast and furious 6¨ , ¨Vanishing on 7th Street¨ and ¨The Raven¨. Colorful and evocative cinematography by Daniel Aranyó who has also worked in Hollywood as ¨High School Musical ¨ saga and subsequently photographed ¨Combustion¨ for Daniel Calparsoro . Gorgeous photography being filmed on location in A Coruña, Galicia, Madrid, and Irak scenes shot in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain .

This is another superbly powerful Warfare/thriller movie being stunningly directed Daniel Carlparsoro . It was compellingly realized by Calparsoro in similar vein to ¨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 : 2013 Combustion also starred by Albert Ammann , 2012 Invasor , 2005 Ausentes , 2000 Asfalto , 1997 A Ciegas ,1996 Pasajes , 1995 Salto a Vacío .
