Storyline

After the robbery of a bomb and the death of several secret agents who tried recovered it, Minister Boyero recruits five agents from some Spanish local police agencies to preserve the existence of Cuerpo de Élite (Elite Corp.), a secret team created in the 70's during the Spanish Transition. The new agents are Santi (Madrid's Mobility Agent), Lola (Andalusia's Civil Guard), Pep (Catalonia's Mosso d'Esquadra), Gorka (Basque Country's Ertzaina) and Byron (an Ecuatorian immigrant who claims born in Cuenca, member of Spanish Legion). The new Cuerpo de Élite is called to conclude the unfinished mission of the previous team: recover an atomic bomb from Palomares's Broken Arrow (an infamous accident where four atomic bombs fell in Spain's coast in 1966) before it be exploded. But the bad connivance between them will endanger to fulfill the mission, in addition of a woman who tries to alert Santi about the hidden truth behind of Cuerpo de Élite. Written by Chockys

Easy watch
29 October 2017 | by melizSee all my reviews

I found this one on Netflix and was in a "whatever works" mood. So I decided..porque no..Watch this one. It is a silly movie and overall I actually enjoyed it. I did not know what to expect, because I rarely watch Spanish movies. It is not the world's greatest comedy/nor acting, but I still think they managed to make it enjoyable. So - if you are in the same mood as me or just want to watch something easy going, this might be a good option. It is somewhat a low budget movie, but that also makes it silly. What I do like about movies (lets say from Spain), is that the actors are unknown for me (even if they are well known from TV etc in their own country)..and thats a good thing. I cant even tell you how fed up I am with the same overused actors in movies. No names mentioned, no names forgotten.

Try it and you might find yourself enjoying yourself for 1.5 hour=)
