Good Start ..Bad Finish

Great intentions take a wrong turn and the movie plummets! Writer & Director got lazy and it shows! This really could've been something great!

Unknown Origins

This Spanish film opens with a young policeman dying while trying to rescue people from a burning building. His father, Cosme who is also a policeman, is a day off retirement when his replacement, Inspector David Valentín calls. Together they attend a strange crime scene; a dead man is found; he is incredibly muscular and his skin is grey. Cosme's son Jorge, a comic fan, sees a crime photo and notes the similarity to the original version of 'The Incredible Hulk'. When a second body is found; this time resembling the first appearance 'Iron Man', Gorge is invited to act as a consultant. David isn't keen but his new boss Norma, who happens to be keen on cosplay, insists. Together the unlikely pair begin following clues that lead to the uncovering of other related crimes... it would appear that somebody sees themselves as a supervillain... will it take a superhero to stop them?

I really enjoyed this film; it started well with superhero-origin based murders that were as twisted as any of the killings in 'Seven'; a film this makes a clear reference to at one point. Somewhat unexpectedly there are also plenty of laugh out loud moments; the first sight of Norma, dressed in a sailor fuku and brightly coloured wig! The characters are a lot of fun; at first it seems to be mocking comic fan Gorge; when we first see him he is walking around the house in his underwear and eating toast his father had thrown in the bin, but as it progresses he is seen to be a rounded character. The cast did an impressive job making characters fairly believable even during more fanciful events. The film has a great look; suitably dark, with muted tones most of the time, contrasting with moments of bright colour in Gorge's comic store and Norma's cosplay costumes. Without going into details I thought the ending was really good; it wasn't how I thought things would go when I started watching. Overall I'd definitely recommend this to fans of serial killer films and fans of superheroes.

These comments are based on watching the film in Spanish with English subtitles.
