Goofs

Salvador Ortiz, the leader of the anarchist strikers, tells the boss Don Emilio that the strikes will end when the workers are no longer forced to work over 10 hours. The eight-hours-working day though was a result of the Huelga de La Canadiense, a strike lead by CNT, in 1919 in Barcelona and came into action by a government decree. The movie is set in 1921.

Not bad but not a gem.
3 March 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Since I live in Spain I've been watching more and more Spanish movies and there are some really good movies made here. La Sombra De La Ley falls just under that category. Luis Tosar is an actor I recognize now as he's been in a couple good movies. La Sombra De La Ley (I have no clue why they translate this as Gun City) is probably not the best movie where Luis Tosar plays in but it's worth watching. To me it was just a bit too long and sometimes a bit confusing as well so more than a six star rating it won't get from me. The acting, directing were all positive, the plot just not perfect.
