It's an excellent Spanish action movie with other well aspects and amazing.
11 November 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

We are facing a splendid Spanish film. A film with the same quality as some other recent of Hollywood.. watching the trailer think of two big films like "Speed" (1994) directed by Jan de Bont with Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper and Sandra Bullock, and "Phone Booth" (2002) Joel Schumacher with Colin Farrell and Kiefer Sutherland. And after seeing this film Dani de la Torre are the two films as benchmarks.

The film has a masterful direction of actors. The plot could not be more realistic, and also increases as the film progresses. The actors perform great, especially Luis Tosar, her daughter in the movie who plays Paula del Rio and Javier Gutierrez. Supporting actors as Elvira Minguez and Goya Toledo also have their good performances on screen. Fortunately, the trailer does not spoil the film, it is very well assembled.

The film as a whole is very well assembled, with many scenes of drama, tension, emotion and action, all at equal parts. Music is also helping to keep tied to what happens to all the characters. It is one of those films that keep you attentive to the end, much like what happens to our hero Luis Tosar in a moment of inspiration. He's gorgeous, wonderful.
