A good genre film
8 August 2000 | by daniel-242See all my reviews

I can say one thing about this movie: it's full of energy. And maybe looks like just another action movie, but the story has many chilean themes, like the orphan boy, the faceless police and the power of the media in a society with no other connection with the people's life. Very interesting, very good acted.
