El guardián invisible (2017)
More like a TV movie
One dimensional characters and an anti-climatic, predictable conclusion.
I love crime thrillers so much that I'm generally really forgiving when it comes to characters and story lines but this one was just too cliché even for me, especially considering the abundance of really good murder-centered TV series out there these days. Either the murder itself has to be unique or the main characters need to be interesting or emotionally engaging...unfortunately, neither is true in this case.
One solid point, however, goes to the atmosphere. Dark, spooky, always raining. Small town, with a nearby forest. Wonderful Gothic overtones. I rarely get see Spain depicted like this in films.
And finally, a side note. This also reminded me a bit of The Bone Collector, where the main protagonist is a female detective trying to smoke out a serial killer and is guided by a black mentor who just injects little kernels of crucial info that helps her break open the case. The entire movie plays out like a color by numbers book. :(
