Just cruising ..
14 December 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Not just cruising, there is a lot more weight to this (pun intended). It does show that there is a really good genre scene in Spain. While you could argue that this is a mixture of different other (American) movies, it still keeps an original touch to it. Now the message on the other hand is a bit convoluted.

But let's keep it real: How many movies can really balance political or social statements and deliver on the thriller aspect the viewer is expecting? Not that many who are really exceptional. This is still pretty strong and good, even with a couple of plot holes and suspend your disbelief kind of stuff. If you're able to, the movie will be a somewhat enjoyable ride (pun not intended)
