      Brandon Judell indieWire A beautifully realized, fevered and smart retelling of an actual robbery that went very amiss back in sixties' Argentina.

      andy n It is not very clear why to make a film on this real robbery. The usual trivial robbery. The fact that two of the robbers are gay does not change the situation. The script's love line is extremely far-fetched. The behavior of the characters is infantile. Fate and plot are predictable. Although with all this the film was shot well, just do not understand why ?! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the only movies I was thoroughly entertained by the whole time. The ending is enough to watch this movie, as it's very climatic and absorbing. I like the characters, and the fact that this movie was based on a true story makes it more entertaining. Fun and has action easy to understand. Only reason this is not a five star is because sometimes I felt a little let down by the movie in regards to its sluggish middle. But overall great. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Amazing movie. Amazing direction. Amazing cast!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie didn't work for me. It simply couldn't work! It was so tiresome and it was really long, with long periods of no action. The acting was really good, both lead actors did an amazing job. They managed to show the despair that each of them was falling into, but in the end I never felt for them. The movie managed to enrage me and from that point on nothing could change my mind. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member The tension struck like a blade in the chest.
