Much better than expected.
15 May 2019 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

I'm generally not fond of drug-dealing films, but I must admit I really enjoyed this film. Mainly thanks to the vibrant, thumping music, and Richard Coyle as Frank. Man, he was good! The film so effectively shows how a 'simple' deal in the drug world is not that simple, and how quickly everything can spin out of control - always for the sake of money. Poor Frank - I felt so sorry for this character, who was just trying really hard.

The acting in general was very good and believable. The film also delivers a very prominent message: never get involved with drugs - not using it or dealing with it. Director Luis Prieto focuses a lot on facial expressions and it is highly effective!

The film sure leaves you hanging for the viewer to make up his own mind as to whats going to happen next. Very good.
