User Reviews

A must see film, not for kids or adolescents
8 January 2019 | by ioannespSee all my reviews

If it weren't a real incident series of scenes, I would think that it was a brutal weird series of a sick mind. On the other hand, beyond the brutal scenes which come with the real incidents, it is a well made film, with good casting, humor and something you don't meet in the western films, no shooting! The enforcement of the law comes with no shooting and something that I still find it difficult to believe by arresting all the criminals alive as a primal target for the leading actor. Either life give us lessons or this is director's potential values for his audience. It is also quite enjoyable and keeps your interest in watching it in high levels.
