It seems to be comedy, let's shalke it!
15 September 2004 | by joan-sanchezSee all my reviews

Not just a funny movie. In fact, after a short intro to meet the characters, it's all action. Nothing is what it seems to, even the most lesser detail comes into work to push the players to run, jump, shot and keep running to breathe one more minute. Not a buddy movie, just action with three top class comedy players and, well more funny that many archetipical shot-and-run productions.

Although Antonio Resines is not so known outside Spain, he's a great comedy actor, so he can provide the plot of that special moments that the average 'buddy-movie actor' cannot show to screen. In this film we can see him as a self-defeated man, without hope nor friends, that turns off managing for a few days a gang band to safe a lad and his girlfriend from a very very sadistic killers.

Jordi Vilches breaks into the movie with his unforgettable Catalan tone, and reveals himself as the worst enemy of his friends taking them from victory to victory until the final disaster... This player, who was skilled in a circus school rather than an acting class, is able to afford most-demanding scenes and to make them easy. Jordi is a gem to take care for, we will sure hear from him at the highest level.
