Ivana Baqueros second movie
, 26 Nov 2009
Ivana Baqueros second movie, but quite conroversial in the Ivana Baquero fan community (which I will discuss later on in this article).
However, I really enjoyed the movie and thought that it was quite well developed, though the production side lacked a little.
The film is in English and is a horror movie, so expect a few screams!
It is a duel. A man escaping from his past, pursued by the Beast that will haunt him and destroy those around him until he finally honors a lovers´ vow and confronts his destiny.
Imagine an adventurous young couple, teenagers escaping the world of consumerism and comfortable conformity by playing the game of infiltration, the practice of entering into dangerous situations in which you don´t belong. They do it just for the rush, the adrenaline rush, the pure passion for life, for love, as only the young can love. A love more important than life itself.
But infiltrating a boatload of immigrants who are washed up on a dangerous shore, a land ruled by the merciless iron fist of Colonel Kufard, takes the lovers beyond the dangers of the game and into a nightmare realm of violence and damnation. A new game with new rules played to the death.
A desperate fugitive, running from the past, pursued by ROTT, the beast that stops at nothing to carry out the order to kill. A rottweiler left for dead that comes back ever stronger, with fangs and jaws of steel and a single-minded bloodlust. Reinforced with modern technology and possessed of an ancient evil that will not die until it has devoured the heart and possessed the soul of its prey.
A chase across a landscape of terror where there is no friend, no refuge, no respite from relentless violence and cruelty,
there is only the hunter and the hunted.
Horror: 3 stars
To an unwary viewer, this will be found as an exceedingly scary movie, but to the accostommed eye, perhaps it might be a bit old-fashioned.
The horror takes the form of a tension throughout, which rarely gives way.
Storyline: 3 Stars
Theres a relatively good storline attached to the movie, whcih will be able to keep your attention through the duration of the movie!
Music: 2 Stars
Music is as could be expected from a small budget production, but its not iritating either.
Acting: 3 Stars
Apart from Ivana Baquero, the acting is fairly basic, nothing bad, but nthing special either
Ivana Baquero: 4 Stars
Ivanas role is a little longer than her previous role in Romasanta, and assumes more of a supportive possition. I think in total we have about 5-10 minutes screen-time with Ivana (worth the time taken watching the movie) an she has quite a few lines (in half broken english)
Ivana Baquero executes her part with the perfect balence of emotions and certainty in her role.
I thought the movie was well worth the watch if even if only to see Ivana for a few minutes!
This is perhaps the area in which the movie fails
A man (the main character) is stock-naked for a few minutes in the movie, and it appears that he is so when he meets Ivana Baqueros character.
There is an explicit sex scene. But the movie doesnt dwell on it for too long.
A quick word to Ivana fans: Theres enough of Ivana in non-sex scenes to be able to enjoy it, though that initial scene is quite shocking.
Apart from a few errors, the movie is well worth the watch if you want to see more of Ivana, and her role is quite a reasonable one.
So go ahead and enjoy!
