Goofs

When the children first enter the restaurant where Ana (Ana Torrent) is working, she promises Antoñito (Iván Chavero) two Euros. The Euro did not become legal tender in Spain before 1999 and notes and coins were not introduced before 2002. However the film is set in 1991, ten years before. Instead the Peseta was used, and she should have promised ESP 300-400. See more »

So much hype but so little action. Music is absolutely terrible and makes this feel outdated. Wrong kind of music for specific scenes. Only reason I give this a 6 is because the acting wasn't bad.
