The Zero Hour (2010)
Venezuelan hit man Parca the Reaper takes over a Caracas hospital in the middle of a medical strike, and holds the staff hostage in a desperate attempt to save his girlfriend's life. Meanwhile, as police surround the building and the media circus gets underway, Parca becomes a folk hero by agreeing to give up one hostage for each new patient admitted. But when tensions in the hospital spill out into the streets, a heroic gesture has unexpected consequences. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Zero Hour
In line with the 'urban gunslinger' iconography of Zapata's hip-hop roots, violence against the system is portrayed as a means to personal and social redemption and staged with a coolness that strives to make the brutality palatable.

The Zero Hour Quotes
- Dr. Cova:
- It's different when it hits close to home, isn't it?
- El Gringo:
- How cute. Now he thinks he's St. Delinquent.
- La Parca:
- When hospitals go on strike, it's poor people like them who pay the consequences. The wealthy are fine and dandy in their private clinics.
