Its a spanish film that does a take on drug kingpins, addicts, interdepartemental police corruption, decieft, blood feud, and a revenge factor that only a few other international movies can show the same quality.
its a revenge for a accidental kill of a child of a protruding and prominet crime family that ignites it all.
it has a very nice build up, the tension and the outcomes of the shootouts are invisible and unsurtain to smell before the battle, and the lines laid out in away that makes you surprised and bypassed by the twists of the plot. the setup and float in the action scenes are brilliant.
but its a film made by a weak financial power in the film business, so dont expect cgis et.al, but the acting are good and if you need a change of footprint of narcoaction then its a recommend from the grumpy old man
