Critic Reviews for Gun City (La sombra de la ley)

All Critics (6)

Peaky Blinders fans may be drawn to the film's period detail and violence, but its character-driven story and methodical pacing may not suit everyone. However, patient viewers may be rewarded.

The film is sometimes a gift for the eyes, but in others, it tends to the imbalance. Yet, its proposal deserves to be well received. [Full Review in Spanish]

Drama about corruption in 1920s Spain; language, violence.

Especially memorable are the roles of Vicente Romero and Manolo Solo, two villains that their actors endow with a tragic and nuanced air. [Full review in Spanish]

De la Torre seeks an expression that may want to be artistic but is only technical, with a staging of spectacular appearance that hides a rehash of obvious references and nothing original. [Full Review in Spanish]

[Gun City] uses pure entertainment to match social and political issues (the trigger of Primo de Rivera's coup) that could even resonate today. [Full review in Spanish]
