Alix Turner Ready Steady Cut A Shakespearean-quality drama of revenge and family conflict from a quality Spanish pedigree. Rated: 4/5 Feb 9, 2021 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation A simple, taut Spanish thriller that rarely blinks. Rated: 3/4 Jan 16, 2020 Full Review John Serba Decider Uneven but enjoyable, Eye for an Eye is just preposterous enough to be entertaining, but no so preposterous that it fails to suspend our disbelief. Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Ignacio Navarro El antepenúltimo mohicano Sketched out with raw realism. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Sep 3, 2019 Full Review Fausto Fernandez Fotogramas The film truly subverts expectations.

Riviu R Good, just good. Not really special like an amazing thriller about "revenge-esque" movie. But the shocking ending was unpredicted. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/01/23 Full Review T T Very slow, boring, and with a predictable ending. Also, while the story is interesting, the plot is full of holes. Overall, it's a dark and depressing movie that is well below average in quality. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/23 Full Review Gianmarco R Really interesting film with dark implications, very entertaining and easy to follow. It has some small forcing of the texture and some holes, but still it is very nice so you don't give it much weight Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/27/21 Full Review chris k A simple yet powerful thriller that could certainly enchant some viewers with its raw realism. Still, I found it underwhelming. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Quando nos pegamos nervosas pq estamos a torcer para o vilão, ou melhor o protagonista antagônico, vigador, adorável, porque "Quem com ferro fere..." Título mais propício não há. E que desfecho, icônico e irônico, trágico, o sangue escorrendo pelo seio, é de uma genialidade, ótima produção trina (faltou a França), roteiro, atuações, desenvolvimento, tudo muito bem temperadinho, num prato servido de modo impecável, e perfeito de ser degustado… Adorável… Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Simple but mostly effective only served by its slow burn script but finally saved by a no compromise ending and an always on-line performance from Luis Tosar. An entertaining thriller not going through the usual suspects. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
