      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It gives us a Cliff Notes history lesson on fraud and money laundering. Rated: C May 17, 2024 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine El Correo immerses us in a powerful action thriller, and functions as a mirror of reality, pointing out the personal and political vices that have marked Spain's recent history. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 7/10 May 13, 2024 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Slick, sex-uped and maddeningly-shallow Rated: 1/4 May 11, 2024 Full Review Pablo Vázquez Fotogramas I will not be the boomer critic who ruins the party by explaining that this entertaining, fast-paced, and grotesque offering, shot with half-hearted composure and zero involvement, is more of the same, but also isn't. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Jan 23, 2024 Full Review Javier Ocaña El Pais (Spain) But in the end, the movie, thick and heavy like an out-of-date ice cream, ends up being, in a way, a victim of itself and of what it wants to denounce.

      Jhosep G Sí, ¿y? Desde que empezó, esta película ya dejaba ver lo mala que iba a hacer. Una introducción horrible, una voz narrativa completamente innecesaria. Los personajes demasiado blandos, sin motivaciones claras más allá de la búsqueda cliché del dinero y el poder. Cada decisión del protagonista que se cree un nuevo Sherlock termina siendo lo más estúpido que pueda haber. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/16/24 Full Review acaba 1 An excellent film inspired by real events Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review Read all reviews
