Script by director Rodrigo Grande is so full of holes that the viewer's suspension-of- disbelief capacity is used up in the first few minutes. The always reliable Leonardo Sbaraglia manages to make something out of his character Joaquín, a paraplegic with a disconcerting ability to do heavy digging and crawl in tunnels, but all the other characters are built of tired clichés such as the heavies played by Pablo Echarri and Federico Luppi and the temptress in charge of Clara Lago. The heist planned by Joaquín is surely one the most sure-to-fail in movie history.
Grande's direction is fluid, cinematography by Felix Monti is very good and the sets are atmospheric, but the movie is terminally weighted down by the script. A miss.
