Movie Info

Daniel Cebrian's gritty coming-of-age drama Segundo Asalto (AKA Round Two, 2006), concerns Angel, a twenty-year-old loner and an aspiring boxer with extremely poor career prospects. When Angel encounters Vidal, a career criminal who aggressively tries to persuade him to take "the easy route" by participating in a series of bank robberies, he is virtually torn in two directions - forced to choose between the familiar environment of the boxing ring, and the seemingly "easy" route to which Vidal beckons. As a result, Angel's sense of stability begins to crack and weaken under this external pressure, and he starts to lose his bearings. But ironically, by responding to Vidal's proposition, Angel can determine his core values and goals and the direction of his life, and thus gain the inner strength necessary to move forward. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Good Boy (Segundo asalto)

I've noted that the Spanish cinema is consistent in its production of great films like this one. 'The Good Boy' has a good story, a lively pace and a well-knit cast. Alex Gonzalez is very natural in his role as Angel as is Dario Grandinetti as Vidal. It's acting and directing like this that consistently puts American cinema to shame.
