Trivia

Lead star Carloto Cotta said that to play a soccer superstar (loosely inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo), he did not take additional soccer lessons but instead worked with a personal trainer to develop highly-defined six pack abs - something Ronaldo is famous for. Cotta worked out for months in advance following a strict training regime and diet that had him eating almost no carbs. He noted, "It is very hard to get abs like that." But the training paid off and the film-makers complimented Cotta for achieving the shredded physique of a soccer star. In the film, Cotta constantly appears shirtless and shows off his abs, much like the soccer star he is based on. See more »

A big pile of steaming Sh t!
7 September 2019 | by interferenciasSee all my reviews

I will use the same vulgar and careless language as the movie.

What the f ck did i just watch? I like genre cinema, be it sci-fi, horror, surrealism, fantasy, a.o, but this is a big pile of steaming sh t. There are some good ideas, but the directing is atrocious, with lots of shaky camera to hide the clumsiness of the directors, and absurd frameworks that not even the great Jess Franco would use (but the spanish director knew what he was doing, there is a big difference). And, let's talk about the cast ... the fewer skills and the more over-the-top you can be ... the better. It's a shame because Carloto Cotta is an above average actor and is being underused in this abysmal sh t. Despite having some good ideas (I liked the fuzzy dogs) and some interesting sequences, this fails roundly. I don't think I will ever give the benefit of the doubt to these directors. This is, speaking in pure, hard and raw terms, a beautiful sh t in 3 acts.
