El espinazo del diablo (2001)
This is being wildly overrated by other reviewers
I'm not going to bore you every little thing that bothered me with this film and will keep it short. This movie is always held up as a horror or at least listed in the genre and it shouldn't be. This is more of a drama with a somewhat haunting story. The biggest problem with this movie though is that it is very slowly and boring and it doesn't deliver in the end. You are left with a lot of questions and I was disappointed that I wasted the time and money I did on this movie. It's a one time watch movie at best. The only reason I am writing this is to give people fair warning that this movie will be a waste of time for you if you go into it thinking it is a horror movie. The only reason some of these are so high is because its Guillermo del Toro's movie. He does decent work, but this rating is way off.
Don't believe the fake ratings! Waste of time.
There isn't anything in this movie that is believable in the slightest. The acting was really bad. I can get past that because these are basically b or c list actors, but the script was just terrible. None of the characters are convincing and you don't really care about them either way. The action was sub par for a war movie. The music didn't really fit either and the effects were really bad too. This movie is just all over the place. It has a nice message and could have been decent, not great though, if properly written and directed. That being said I rarely watch a movie where at the end I feel angry or at least cheated out of my time. This is one of those times though. Skip it. You won't regret it.
