User Reviews

It is weird, but good enough to get hooked!
17 June 2019 | by G3WireSee all my reviews

Very interesting plot in this one, why people here compare it to la casa de papel, I have no idea. Totally different style, plot, people, scenery...

I feel like almost all the characters did their job, acting was on point. I only had a problem with Linda and Jack, sometimes it just did not feel real enough for me to care about them. Dante and santito really made this up for me, especially santito with all his crazyness, well acted. The gangs, the rivarly, this a good "touch" on the series, made all of it more realistic.

I wish I knew Mexican, tho i only had eng subs and it was fine for me.

If I have to pull some negativity out from the series, its Dante's fighting skills, he is a ex-marine. I was kind of waiting for him to a bit more physically strong in fights but...

All in all, totally worth watching! :)
