    I agree with Dave P's comments and I am submitting my vote primarily to raise the score of this undervalued film.

    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 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.

    The most creative thriller I've seen since Memento.

    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.

    This is one of the best films I've seen in a while. Aside from the very original and brilliant story and excellent cinimatography, the spanish director put a nice touch on the film and differentiated it from the usual hollywood feature formula films that bore the hell out of me. Rent this movie, if nothing else it may cure you from wanting to go to casinos. Metascore 60 is total BS This is one of the best films I've seen in a while.

If you read the guys that brought the score down, they said convoluted, maybe to someone who isn't paying attention. Expand

    Mix of stylish action and meta-musings, provides plenty of confusing, satisfying surprises, though it could have used more tightness and punch.
  2. Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo creates the same world of devils and innocents that grounds so much of Spain's modern, seeped-in-Satanic-evil horror, recast in a secular cinematic vocabulary.
