Great
13 July 2015 | by andres-hrovatSee all my reviews

Great movie. You can feel the 1970-1980 life. And a good guy-bad guy battle, with the comparisons, is not bad actually. The selection of actors is very good to. This non static movie remind me to the earlier movie "The French Connection", with a similitude, but this movie is recorded with the Hollywood modern way. The faces of the actors remind me to that era to. I only miss a revenge to a judge's family, but never happens. This Movie is a great deal for Action-Triller lovers. Love the colors and this sepia effects in some frames. If you love action films of earlier eras, this is a movie for you. Beautiful story, good actors and great landscapes. Recomendable
