This moving film co-produced by Mexico/Spain contains thrills , noisy action , intrigue and a spectacular and bloody conclusion .

Decent hold-up thriller filled with surprises , sneaky twists , and being efficiently realized . This is a tricky little thriller about a coordinated bank robbery that gets worse when they are doublé-crossed .

And that's in the first ten minutes ¡ . ¡ Getting the cash was the easy part; the actual challenge is living long enough to spend it ¡ .

Stirring heist thriller filled with intense set-pieces , nail-biting action , pursuits , car crashes , crosses and doublé-crosses and being swiftly paced . This is a thrilling narration of an exciting bank assault with exceptionally fine camera work , attractive sequences , moving escapes and ending confrontation .

Tony Dalton stars and writes in this thriller about a gang of thieves who steal $12 million from a Mexican bank . Jordi Molla delivers an excellent performance as the criminal-mind to execute the risked robbing . Along with the gorgeous Ana De la Reguera and the tough as well as intelligent Silverio Palacios . Celso Bugallo plays magnificently The Texan , one of the city's big racketeers and plot to launder the money in Argentina , as he gives them a very short period of grace to recover the money before he takes his vendetta .Other chief excitements about the picture , will be in the intervention of a good plethora of Mexican/Spanish/Argentinean actors who realize professionally competent interpretations .

There's no warning for a shock.

I watched this film just to see Ana de la Reguera. I'm prone to do that. I like someone and I watch everything I can find. This is one of those.

Leonardo (Jordi Mollà) and Carlos (Tony Dalton), along with Monica (the reason I'm watching) rob a bank. No flash - everything cool as ice. Later, Lese (Silverio Palacios) joins them in the escape.

Things got exciting later as money was supposed to be exchanged, and the gang got caught in a war between two rivals - The Texan (Celso Bugallo) and The Chief of Police (Oscar Alegre).

Double crosses and lots of shooting, with a sweet cross at the end.

A good action movie, but there was nothing special in it except Ana de la Reguera.

It wanted to be original but came out generic

That's the way I would describe this film...It is true that not many(none?)action films are done in Mexico but it isn't just about trying, if that were the case then everybody could do film-making. From the producers of Matando Cabos comes this (well intended?)action film that pretends to be original but in it's effort it results more generic than everything, first of all Tony Dalton's screenplay is way to thin to even sustain a film of 90 minutes, you can tell he wanted to have lots of surprise moments in his film but instead of feeling like smart twists the plot feels full of inconsistencies and as if the screenwriter thought "well what then" and suddenly a twist for the plot came to his mind. The use of music while adequate at some moments becomes excessive and the film relies way too much on it to create an atmosphere and I say create not enhance. One thing you can't say, and it is that the director didn't put style in the film, he uses every angle & shot he knows in the film whether it is to compensate for the lack of substance or just to show his "film skills" I don't know but I think is the latter.Now about the acting the only rescuable performance is Jordi Mollá's in his brief role, Dalton and De LaReguera are adequate but then again the screenplay doesn't help that much and Silverio Palacios as in Matando Cabos plays the cool guy.The action sequences don't stand for something new or groundbreaking and some are excessively long and some could've been just avoided but then again the had to fill time since the screenplay couldn't. A movie to watch just if there's nothing better to do, and if you wan't to check out Tony Dalton's work you better watch Matando Cabos which even when it thinks of itself as original but owes lots of films, still is way more fun and entertaining than Sultanes del Sur.
