A supernatural and religious thriller with noisy action , chills , suspense and violence . The premise is the following : two old armies have been secretly battling since the beginning of time . As 36 people have been chosen by God to maintain the equilibrium of world as we know it . But many of these chosen ones have been methodicaly chased and eliminated along the history , step by step they have been exterminated . Nowadays , it is time to take down the last of the chosen ones . What would you do if the world was going to end when the saviours disappear? . Present day , after years of fighting , there only one Just man left , Theo : Diego Martin, as he is suddenly involved into an ancient battle , being helped by a strange young woman : Ana Claudia Talancon, against an army of evil villains , led by Federico Luppi as the puzzle man , and his hoodlums : Brian Thompson , who want to destroy the human races in order to regenerate them. .

Decent spiritual thriller with thrills , chills and the action moments are fast moving and compactly realized , including functional special effects . This is an effective and interesting mystery thriller with graphic violence and action filled that will enjoy the action buffs . It results to be exciting because of its rich analysis about the evil and goodness represented by the guardians of the Apocalypse , The Just , including a final judgement to depend on their survival . Starred by Diego Martin as a war photographer who suffers a hot pursuit in which he is both the cause and the objective. And a nice support cast such as Ana Claudia Talancon , Federico Luppi , Brian Thompson , Raul Nuñez , Antonio Dechent as an stubborn police inspector and a brief role by Goya Toledo .

It displays a colorful and dark cinematography by Javier Salmones , a professional cameraman who has photographed notorious titles as Romasanta, Matar el tiempo, Martes Carnaval , Finisterre , Capitan Trueno y Santo Grial . And a frightening and moving musical score by Zacarias De Riva who has composed important and successful scores : Hierro , Machinist , Automata , Tadeo Jones , Bent and Black snow . Being competently produced by the Spanish prestigious "Filmax" production ,expert on terror/ Mystery movies : Carlos Fernandez , Julio Fernandez and Sandra Fernandez . This Spanish/Mexican coproduction was well written and directed by Manuel Carballo , though it has a few gaps . He has directed shorts , documentary and TV movies such as : Returned , Possession of Emma Evans , 13 Miedos and Reinas Tv series . Rating : 6/10 . Acceptable and passable mysterious movie . Well worth watching .
