Koblick - A Dark Mission That May or May not Be True
1 September 2018 | by krocheavSee all my reviews

With a scant script that resembles a simplistic Sergio Leone Spaghetti western - Koblic ambles along in a somewhat predictable fashion. Most characters are thinly sketched in a manipulative hit-on-the-audience way and not always convincing. There's the badder than bad, bad guys, the silent hero with a dark past, and of course, the beautiful young woman who lives with her nasty abusive uncle - she claims she does not want to have sex with him but chooses to sleep in the same bed (sorry, but that's more than a little odd) She then takes one look at the 'good' guy (who's twice her age!) and she's instantly in lust and ready to have sex with this complete stranger -seems in these small country towns no-one cares about getting-to-know-you or such things as aids, etc.

Performances are quite good and while it's not without some interesting dramatic situations - could have been more engaging with better script development. As is, it may have fared better as a 60min TV episode. The movie takes its time in letting us know what's going on via a few stylish but padded out camera shots and at times, one can watch some scenes in double speed --as people walk or ride from one place to another-- and miss little or nothing. Story wise, it seems the Argentinean Govt during the 70s-80s had devised a rather expensive and brutally shocking method to dispose of people who didn't agree with them. Lovers of the tough guy/revenge school i.e: Ventura, Bronson, Eastwood, Neeson, etc, should enjoy this but we've seen much of it before and maybe done a little better.
