      Dayi P Final inesperado, te mantiene pendiente cada segundo Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/07/23 Full Review JJJJJJ J Very average feeling. The environment and setting was very well done the problem was that the story was just not interesting enough. I wanted it to have more of a who done it feel then it did. The plot twist at the end was funny and entertaining but overall this movie was very bland. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I couldn't get into the movie, but it was exciting and I do not regret watching it. The thing that bugs me most is the fact that some of the cadres' only function is to demonstrate eery atmosphere, but in real life are impossible. For instance, constantly putting clues in front of the main character and not seeing anything nor the hand of the man who put it although he is watching in the same direction. It is best shown in the part in the bathroom. Also in that scene(spoiler alert) if the detective really did put the letter on the window, he should have gotten wet in the rain and there is no sign of that in the scene with him a minute later. Moreover, in the crash, where the girl in the backseat come through unharmed and Jaime didn't call the ambulance himself. Apart from that, I like the way the movie is getting more mysterious and more intriguing as the end is getting closer, which is not something you see in other thrillers about detectives, where the main plot is often discontinuous with short boring periods of solving the case. All in all, the movie I would recommend for laid back movie nights, without using too much mental energy or being into it 100% all the time. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Late R ‘The Body' gives away its mystery – who the killer is and how they did it –immediately and by doing so creates a problem where tension and suspense has to be found elsewhere. It doesn't fail to do that completely, but the reality is that lots of talking and a few flashbacks that are scarce on interesting details don't really suffice to captivate in the way it wants to. So why do things that way? As it turns out, it was all in service of keeping a secret: the big surprise ending that's supposed to be clever and catch you off guard (if you know of writer/director Oriol Paulo's other screenplays, then you know that he's fond of that sort of thing) and whilst it does accomplish its goals to a certain degree, it also feels unearned and a bit ridiculous once you stop to think about it. The ending was such a secret and we, the audience, were so uninvolved in it that it feels detached – that, for me, is the main problem. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/06/21 Full Review Audience Member TV, R2.12 どんでん返し系か。最後にいろんな理由をつけてくるタイプだが,それに対する好みとしてはそれはどうかという感じ。 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member muy buena,muy entretenida, gran vuelta de tuerca 7/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
