Decent Spanish film with top-notch performances from main cast as well as secondary cast . This is an exciting film though relies heavily on the two protagonists and their affectionate relationship . Mario Casas gives an acceptable acting in similar style to ¨Kike Maillo's Toro¨ in which he also performed a revengeful role , as a previous con man must be back to his old habits to exact a merciless revenge along with his youngest brother and uncle . Nice film , though has a few gaps , but anyway, its is compensated with the enjoyable performances from Mario Casas. And Natalia Molina and remaining cast . Casas and Molina as accompanied by a good support cast , such as Ruth Díaz as the upright police woman , Carlos Bardem , Mariola Fuentes , Vicente Romero , among others.
It packs a colorful and brilliant cinematography by Pau Esteve Birba, though really night and dark , at times . Equally , moving and attractive musical score by Zeltia Montes , including several Andalucian songs . The motion picture was well directed by Paco Cabezas , being filmed in his usual formal and stylistic scholarship , without leaving a trace the thought-provoking issues , in terms of dramatic and narrative excitement . Being well made by Paco Cabezas whose first successful film was ¨Aparecidos¨ and it was nominee in Toulouse Festival 2011 to best director, and directing ¨Neon Flesh¨ to be loved by Nicolas Cage who hired him to make a Hollywood film, shhoting his first international pic : ¨Tokarev¨ .

Rating :6.5/10. Enjoyable Spanish film that will appeal to Mario Casas fans.
dark and surprisingly good
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
