Way too rigid and poorly written
15 July 2006 | by ricsosaSee all my reviews

The work by Jesus Ochoa is generally o.k. but this flick is terribly written. Characters are way too plain and their lines are absurd. Acting does not help one bit.

The script by Carolina Rivera is a major deception considering that she took part both in "Cilantro y perejil" (1995) and "Todo el poder" (1999). The latter directed by Fernando Sariñana as well.

Perhaps the key is that Rivera was co-writer of those two previous movies whilst she was given full responsibility for "El Segundo Aire". Not a smart move by the director/producers.

3 points in total: 2 for Ochoa and 1 for the high visual quality of this movie.
