The seduction and spark of Roger Moore’s Bond, Dirty Harry’s disregard for the lives of criminals, and Bruce Lee’s talent for martial arts. Imagine that explosive combination and add to it the tragic halo of having witnessed the death of his parents when he was a child. Or don’t imagine anything and just go meet Mandrill, the alias Antonio uses to hunt criminals in exchange for some juicy rewards, but mostly with the hope of finding the one-eyed man who turned him into an orphan. In that path Mandrill taints with the blood of his victims, he will inevitably come across a femme fatale: none other than the daughter of his worse enemy. As you can infer from the sacred trilogy mentioned above, Díaz and Zaror’s third work aims straight to the heart of 1970s action movies, and hits the target almost every time. But the love for that wild cinema is hardly monogamous: there’s an explicit homage to Vertigo and a fight sequence in some hotel hallways that could easily pass for the final level of Kung-Fu Master.
