All Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • The film is sometimes a gift for the eyes, but in others, it tends to the imbalance. Yet, its proposal deserves to be well received. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • Drama about corruption in 1920s Spain; language, violence.

    Nov 6, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Especially memorable are the roles of Vicente Romero and Manolo Solo, two villains that their actors endow with a tragic and nuanced air. [Full review in Spanish]

  • De la Torre seeks an expression that may want to be artistic but is only technical, with a staging of spectacular appearance that hides a rehash of obvious references and nothing original. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • [Gun City] uses pure entertainment to match social and political issues (the trigger of Primo de Rivera's coup) that could even resonate today. [Full review in Spanish]
