Way better than I expected! The trailer didn't look too good, to be honest, but it's actually a good movie.
I haven't read the comics so I don't know if it was faithful or not, but...
The plot is well constructed, with a little bit of action, a little bit of intrigue and a little bit of humor. The scenarios look fantastic and the actors did a great job. Maybe the part with SHIELD is a little... unnecessary? But the rest of it is great, flawless.
When it ended I could only think "More! MORE!". And I went bananas when I saw Hawkeye's cameo.
The end suggests that there will be a part 2. I hope they do film a sequel, because if it's half as good as this one, it will be worthy.
P.D.: It was funny seeing who stayed in the room when the movie had ended to see how many nerds were that knew there would be something else after it.
It's not bad. Not awesome, but it is not bad at all.
This is my last year in High School and we have just finished studying the Spanish Civil War (I'm from Spain), so I had no problem understanding the background, and I think that allowed me to enjoy the film more than if I hadn't studied it.
The first minutes are kind of boring because they spend too much time telling the story set in 1982. But once Escrivá becomes priest and the Civil War starts, it becomes better, way better.
I like how they showed that both sides did awful things and that both sides had really good people among them. There are no good or bad people, just people trying to survive during very hard times. It made me remember the stories my grandparents told me about those years.
The only thing I didn't quite like was the part that happens during 1982. I don't really care about it, to be honest. It is not completely bad, but I think they should have focused a little bit more on the war. But it's good overall.
And I have to admit that watching Rodrigo Santoro (and well, Wes Bentley and my fellow countryman Unax Ugalde) and his sexy face made it more interesting xP And Olga Kurylenko is always great.
WAY better than I had expected. After watching Twilight (the film was pure rubbish), I thought that this was going to be just as bad (I hate Catherine Hardwicke). But it was a pleasant surprise.
It's a teenage fantasy romance, so you know it's probably not going to be Oscar worthy, but it's much better than the average movie of that type.
The actors & actresses are good, at least they know how to act (coff coff Twilight). The story is interesting, the rythm is always the same throughout the film. I wouldn't have guessed who the wolf was in a million years, so extra point for that. The guys are hot and, let's face it, that's pretty important in a film like this.
If you're looking for a deep, horror or mistery film this is not the best choice, because it's superficial and the wolf is just an excuse to tell a love story.
If you're looking for a faithful adaptation of the story, this is not your film either, although it does follow the original story to some point.
But if you're looking for a teen fantasy story, then this is the best option.
