Passable and bemusing comedy about a trio of unfortunate swindlers who kidnap a wrong person , a bishop
Acceptable and agreeable action comedy in which three cons chased by some mobsters compete for a surprising treasure . The film is utterly set in Tarazona , Zaragoza , during the ¨Tomatina¨ party , in fact there are several real scenes about this celebration . There two brothers , Los Fayos , (Gorka Aguinagalde , Jorge Asín) have a huge debt , being theatren by two hoodlums of a powerful and trickerer magnate (Carlos Sovera) . Then they attept to kidnap him , but they finish abducting Tarazona's bishop (Luis Varela) . Things go wrong when Los Fayos join forces with a corrupt lawyer (Enrique Villen) . A bit later on , the wealthy millionaire , the henchmen , the kidnappers , the tricky advocate , a beautiful TV reporter (Carmen Barrantes) , the bishop to be aware of a hidden silver treasure . All of them fighting strongly and only one will become the winner and owner of a hugely estimated fortune .
Entertaining and fun action movie full of humor , thrills , intrigue , sympathetic roles and funny dialogue . Fun and amusing comedy with an attractive premise , as two siblings kidnapping the wrong man and various roles looking for a treasure , fighting each other to win the valuable loot . Along the way take place a lot of pursuits , fights , secret caves , dark corridors , as well as twists and turns . This sympathetic action/comedy packs thrills , noisy action , humor with tongue-in-cheek and moving pursuits . This results in a nutty spiral, mayhem, confusion , crazy competitiveness and a surprising finale. Trio protagonists are pretty well : Gorka Aguinagalde , Jorge Asín , Luis Varela , all of them are fine comedians. Support cast is frankly fine . The TV presenter and secondary actor Carlos Sovera provides an enjoyable interpretation as the mean tycoon . Enrique Villen gives a very nice acting as the deceitful advocate at law . Luis Varela as the bishop replaced Álex Angulo after he died in an unfortunate car accident. In fact , the film is dedicated to this great actor Alex Angulo . And Juan Muñoz , member of the Spanish comic duo "Cruz y Raya", together with José Mota ,Juan made his debut as director with the film ¡Ja me maaten...! (2000), and José performed a little role as a beach watcher in the film Torrente 2: Misión en Marbella (2001) .
Being well produced by Raul Garcia Medrano , a notorious producer , including titles as : De tu ventana a la mia , la novia , Nuestros amantes . The motion picture was well written and directed by Gaizka Urresti . In Spain in 2015, at first, was only released in Aragón (Zaragoza/Huesca/Teruel) in 8 theaters , later, in 2016, the film had a widest-national released in 25 theaters . Gaizka Urresti is a good writer, producer and filmmaker. He has written/produced/directed and made films , shorts, documentary , such as : Buñuel en la memoria , Malicia en el país de las maravillas , Chomon el hombre que quiso ser Segundo , Chevrolet, Vida y color , among others . Rating : 5.5/10 . Decente and passable Spanish film
