Gritty, but not that engaging
15 May 2014 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Gritty, but not that engaging.

Had the makings of a good Scarface-like crime-drama, but ultimately was disappointing. Story just wasn't that enthralling, or engaging. Is pretty much a join-the-dots blow-by-blow account of a crime lord's life. Little depth to the characters.

Has some good action scenes and is quite gritty, but the movie lacks substance.

Decent performances, however. Kim Rossi Stuart is great in the lead role. Supporting cast are solid too. Moritz Bleibtrau and Paz Vega will be familiar names to many viewers.
