  1. The film's a swell way of torturing yourself for 108 minutes.
  2. 25
    A convoluted, pointless thriller that wastes the considerable talent of Max von Sydow.

    A film with tunning visuals and full of imagination and suspense. There are some scenes in this film that'll forever stick with you (and remain in your unconsciousness). You'll always be able to recall those "certain" moments. Full Review »

    Since the men and women in this bizarro world has luck on their side, "Intacto" could've been a thinking man's "X-Men", but these people are too self-absorbed; too passionate about the lucrative "silly-games-that-makes-paintball-look-cerebral" market. It's Samuel(Max Von Sydow), a concentration camp survivor turned evil(sound familiar?), which will remind some of the 20th Century Fox franchise, helmed in short order by Brian Singer(yay!) and Brett Ratner(boo!). Only Sara(Monica Lopez) fits the bill of being superhero-like. As a recently widowed cop, Sara is not in the game for herself, she's trying to bring a fugitive(Tomas, played by Leonardo Sbaraglia) to justice. Tomas(who has proven himself as seasoned in cheating death) could rush into burning buildings to save babies instead of being pimped around by Federico(Eusebio Poncela) on the "silly-games-that..."-circuit. "Intacto" isn't about good-versus-evil, but the matchup exists on the periphery(Sara(good) waits on the sidelines when Samuel(evil) dukes it out with Tomas). "Intacto" is a film about greed, extrapolated(there's a faint sci-fi element to this story), to highlight the anti-philanthropist ways of the super-rich, who'd rather indulge in the most trivial of pursuits than help other people.
