Critic Reviews for El Misterio Galíndez (The Galíndez File)

All Critics (2)

What could have been a dynamic political thriller is, at best, a mildly interesting story that never gets beyond two dimensions.

There is no mystery -- everyone seems to pretty much know what happened to Galindez, yet they keep trying to find out.
