it is not chance to be more than nice. historical entertainment, old clichés, impressive landscapes, David against Goliath and the desire of national freedom. so, at the first sigh, nothing special. except, maybe, the manner to build his role of Juan Jose Ballesta who gives to Bruc seductive traits, good humor and realistic courage.adaptation of a well known legend, it is far to propose surprises. only a decent translation in image of fight scenes, memories about other heroic drummers, Vincent Perez as a French officer who rediscover his values and mountains as scene of great events. the great virtue of Bruc, the Manhunt - to be the perfect answer to the public expectation. nothing original. nothing out of classic recipes of the genre. and, sure, an useful introduction to one of Spanish modern history episode.
