The Chosen by God
2 November 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The photographer of war Teo Arroyo (Diego Martín) returns to his hometown and meets his girlfriend Victoria (Goya Toledo) in a hotel. However, two men break in his room, one to kill him and the other to protect him and Victoria is also shot and dies. Before dying, his protector asks him to hide. When Teo goes to his home, he finds that his dog Zeus was also murdered.

Teo meets a young woman, Miryam (Ana Claudia Talancón), who helps him to hide from the police detectives and from the killers that are hunting him down. Teo finds that a sect is killing the thirty people that have been chosen by God to protect the world and he is the last chosen one alive. Will Teo escape from the religious organization?

"El Último Justo" is a religious thriller with a predictable and unoriginal story. There are no surprises in neither in the twists nor in the conclusion. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Último Guardião do Apocalipse" ("The Last Guardian of the Apocalypse")
