Love letter to the Police
Between flight and drone flight the story of three foolish terrorists who do very bad things is narrated because besides being fools they are very very bad; and the good ones very very good. There are no grays of any kind, no characters, just cliches. Lack of dramatic crescendo, the action scenes without tension, ridiculous situations based on coincidence (with very bad editing) and only one good scene: the one of the truck running over people (terrific, amazing, but is only one minute in a show of five hours). The dialogues are very poors, the director honors himself no less than three times. Of course, the police congratulate each other on all the episodes and they don't stop repeating how good they are. The perfect love letter, promoved by one of the producers, Domingo Carral, from Movistar, for
his intimed friends in The Police.
And Nathalie Poza seems awkward with her character.
Dani de la Torre wants to be Tony Scott but he doesn't even get to Guy Ritchie. In other words, he knows about filming, but nothing about narrative,
his cinematic ignorance takes its toll on him. 'La unidad' is a luxurious product without personality, devoid of any rigor (continuous breaking the 180º rule, continuity failures, a non-stop of lens-flare...) which to top it off only copies what its director has seen in the movies he likes, that is, an insult to the profession of directing.
