Storyline

A group of thieves led by a man called El Uruguayo stalk a bank in Valencia to steal as many safety boxes as possible and later flee through a dug tunnel that communicates the building with an abandoned subway station. However, the press officer of the Prime Minister discovers what the thieves are actually after: they want to get their hands on box 314, property of Gonzalo Soriano, a former member of the government who slipped into a coma after a severe accident, left documents with compromising information. The gang's plans start to go awry when the tunnel is flooded by heavy rain, leaving them with no escape, plus to discover that the box really doesn't contains documents, but an external hard drive full of data about important names in all levels of the Spanish politic. At the same time, a fixer of the government receives the mission to assume the control of the negotiations, looking for recover at any cost the box 314 and the information before the robbers flee with it.

A good film that will probably go unnoticed
15 March 2016 | by cornesnaishSee all my reviews

I was excited to see the film because of Tosar in one of the main roles. Wasn't disappointed. Even when he isn't the main pivot point of the story (in this case, it was Rodrigo De la Serna), he manages to give an outstanding performance.

Onto the film though: I thought it was a solid, fast-paced drama flick with a hint of action and some occasional comedic touches, but don't get me wrong - it's thrilling right to the very end. My criticism with it is that I can divide the film into three sections: fast, slow, and fast. The middle part felt a little out of place, with excessive dialogue.

Nonetheless, the acting was superb from the main characters, the photography and color schemes were on point, the dialogue was quick and snappy, without clichés, and the lead roles are very well thought and portrayed. Magnificent acting by Rodrigo De la Serna and Luis Tosar. Solid 7.5 out of 10.
