| Better times?
Sometimes people yearn for "simpler" times and refer the past as a good time to have lived. But as this and other movies show, all time periods have their issues or their problems humans had to endure and to live with. This has a high criminality in the center of the story but also corruption, so it is tough to recognize good and bad sometimes.

Yes gray areas are common and it is not a bad thing to show them. Especially when you show something (even in a heightened film form) that happened. The movie does feel like one of the US films that portrayed that particular time in history and you would be excused if you thought it was about that. Production design is really high and the actors are really good. And it doesn't shy away from violence either - not for the faint hearted and not easy to watch for sure - but very well made

Did You Know?


During the 19th century after when Madrid's power was weakened by the city of Barcelona the inhabitants of the city demolished its medieval wall and the fortress of Ribeira was converted into a public park.


Due to stringent gun control laws, movie prop departments in Spain face extraordinary difficulties obtaining period-appropriate weapons. In the first scene, in which a train is attacked in Barcelona in 1921, the firearms displayed by both sides are implausible and/or wildly anachronistic:

  • M1 Garand rifle. Designed in 1936.
  • M1 carbine. Designed in 1941.
  • Sten sub-machine gun. Designed in 1941.
  • MP 40 sub-machine gun. Designed in 1938.
  • Lee Enfield rifle. While they existed in 1921, they were never in service in any Spanish law enforcement agency or the military, who were issued the ubiquitous Mauser bolt rifles and carbines.
  • Thompson sub-machine gun. While they existed in 1921 (having been designed in 1918), they would have been unheard of in Spain, as they entered production that year and were sold in small quantities to some federal and Law enforcement agencies in the US, the Marines and some armies in Latin America.
Not only that, the defenders of the train, presumably military, display the above collection of firearms (except for the sub-machine guns, carried by the attackers), implausible for any uniformed body, who would have been issued the same model of rifle (in Spain, the Mauser family of rifles and carbines).
