Quite a good movie, worth while
12 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have become a fan of Spanish movies, they seem to have what it takes. And so does this movie. It's a decent thriller, has a nice story with a few twists that keep you interested. Not very violent or scary type of thriller, but more of the action type. And I felt that it wasn't predictable. The basic idea is that of a mother and the things she would do, or get through, to save her kid. It's not exactly award-winning, but I enjoyed it very much. And so did my husband, and he is usually picky. The only scene I did not like is one that suggests animal violence, but don't worry, no animals do actually get hurt, and you can see that in the movie. So it is a nice movie that would please you and it definitely isn't a waste of time.
