Gold fever
7 February 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This story is about literal gold diggers. And while I guess some may compare it to City of God for mining, it wouldn't be fair to the movie itself. Try to watch this as open minded as possible. The characters may make it tough to really enjoy it, because our heroes are not really likeable. But it does try to stay as real as possible while doing so.

It may not be everyones taste but it does fulfill what it sets out to do. If money or the prospect of it (no pun intended) makes people greedy and crazy, imagine what happens with Gold. There is nudity and there is a lot of violence too. So if you like watching movies that depict a certain time era or a certain feeling, this will be right up your alley. It's well done, but is not easy to like
