Storyline

Adolfo, a thirty something security guard, is going through a bad patch. Not only his lifetime girlfriend has just to finished with him to be a guy with no ambition but, moreover, he becomes the target of a series of thugs led by Vázquez, a dangerous criminal who has just escaped from jail. Also he discovers that his father has a double identity. He is not a farmer engaged in the production of cold meat - as Adolfo has believed all his life, but Anacleto, a secret agent who is a bit down and the man who locked Vázquez up in jail thirty years ago. Adolfo will have to leave his comfort zone and work with his father, the person that Adolfo get on worse with in the world to survive the revenge of Vazquez and while, between shootouts and chases, trying to get his girlfriend back.

Anacleto's Legacy
4 November 2015 | by alfonmarsSee all my reviews

This should be the Spanish version of the most known spy in the world, the British James Bond. But in this case the film is focused on adapting the comic, which was before. Anacleto was a well known Spanish character created by Manuel Vázquez, a Spanish comic writer as important as Stan Lee would be in the United States, but less fantastic and much more ironic with the reality of his times.

It has taken a long time at the Spanish industry to give a good version of the comic, and looking more for a good movie than to a translation from the comic to the big screen, the movie gets many licenses to tell the story of this spy. But it has its original humour, and mixes perfectly humour with action, using a good strategy by presenting an old agent and his natural son/substitute. Both characters are played by two representative Spanish actors: Imanol Arias, best known by his 17 seasons TV series "Cuéntame cómo pasó", some kind of drama based on the Spanish history before and after Franco's death, and Quim Gutiérrez, part of a new generation of actors who are taking the lead to the old stars. Both have a perfect chemistry at the screen, giving the right doses of comic situations and action, showing an important effort to be at the level of the big budget American films, and giving us a funny film which who knows, maybe would become a franchise.
