It's a pleasure to see a well-achieved Mexican production such as this one. This surprisingly effective thriller gives you a good insight into Mexican politics and justice, mixed up with a nice, tangled plot based on political murder which reminds us of the Ruiz Massieu affair, which unravels adequately at the end, and above all some excellently executed suspense moments. Acting is decent, perhaps the only performance worth mentioning is that of the Macedonio Ramírez character, a dead-on portrayal of a Mexican judicial agent in a position of power. Production values are adequate, perhaps owing to British involvement in the production, and there are some goofs and inconsistencies here and there, but overall the movie feels pretty solid and will please and thrill viewers from beginning to end.
