A missed oportunity.
31 July 2020 | by syldt1See all my reviews

Marta Etura must be the worst Spanish actress I've ever seen. Expressionless, dull, unable to elicit sympathy or at least, interest.. It doesn't help that her charachter is the most unlikable and bad-written one in the whole trilogy. I've never seen a movie where every single other character is more likable, interesting and worth watching than the protagonist. I haven't read the books, so I cannot say if the story is to blame, but judging the movie by itself, it is just a hollywood wannabe, plus horrible dialogue (Gosh, Etura butchering the English lines was painful to watch, and especially, to hear). Scenes stolen straight from American movies that just don't work. Over the top, farfetched plot, laughable drama and little subtlety make what could have been a decent noir into ridiculous borefest.
