The Zero Hour is a gritty, fast-paced heist film. Set in Caracas during the 24 hours of a controversial medical strike, the film tells the story of Parca (The Reaper) a feared hit man that is forced to take an elite hospital hostage in an attempt to save his wounded girlfriend. The police don't take long to arrive, and with them, a circus of media and onlookers. Parca soon becomes an unlikely hero, a "champion for the poor," until his stunt begins to divide the entire nation and violence begins to spread within the hospital and throughout the city, putting everything, including his girlfriend and her child, in dire jeopardy. A love story told in the midst of chaos, The Zero Hour is a timely and universal story about the mythic rise to power and the inevitable fall from grace. Written by Luis Auvert

A movie that will challenge your cleverness!
9 December 2011 | by alshwenbear1See all my reviews

The action, I have seen it, the clichés, the same… the STORY, you get thrown into a movie where you think that you know what is going on and what will happen next, well it's nothing like this! The story evolves in the perfect and non-predictable twists, making the climax of the movie unreasonable at first, but like a well created puzzle, everything falls into place, and believe this, the last fifteen minutes you will want to watch it again and enjoy the cleverness of it! It was a movie I waited months and months to see, and my expectations for this movie were satisfied. If you are thirsty for a good movie you must watch, "La Hora Cero"!
