Love and terrorism collide in this sexy Molotov cocktail of raging adolescent hormones and righteous indignation. When three virile teenage boys escape from a detention center, their charismatic leader Xabi has more on his mind than good times and dodging cops. While his clueless friends blissfully hook up with girls, Xabi is making explosives and tracking down his lover Iñaki, the head of a Basque terrorist cell with whom he had a brief affair. Desperate to prove himself to the silver-haired extremist, Xabi plants bombs and robs unsuspecting johns. But when one of his tricks turns out to be a cop, his plans begin to crumble.

Adolescent NaiveteMay 15, 2009
By Jose Luis Guzman Jr.
Interestingly, there are three story lines in this movie. Each character representing a potential fleeting phase of growing up.
one is a free spirit, one is a don juan, one is confused soul looking to impress his first love. Two of the characters are straight one is gay; all test boundries, the law, and what they feel is passion.
Honestly many of the scenarios are a stretch of the imagination....the transition/link from one plot to the other is poorly demonstrated.

Delightfully quirky romantic comedyMay 11, 2012
By J. Martin
Thriller? Drama? No way! This is a quirky, totally unbelievable but totally charming little romantic comedy about an extremely dumb, naive but earnest gay kid who wants to impress his middle-aged terrorist ex-lover by blowing up a flagpole in Madrid, but he gets just about everything wrong.
If you watch this expecting a thriller, you'll be badly disappointed. If you take it seriously AT ALL, you'll be badly disappointed, especially at the end. But if you let Israel Rodriguez's devastatingly sexy and sweet and clueless Xavi get under your skin and work his magic on your imagination you'll have as good a time watching this delightful little movie as I did.
I had seen Rodriguez before only in a short called Doors Cut Down, when he was about 17; it was okay, but not great. Man, has he aged well! The long hair is incendiary, and he's turned from a cute kid into one of the sexiest men on earth. On top of that, he's smart and he's a great actor. Where are the American actors like him? Answer: There aren't any.

a bit slow for an action flickApr 15, 2010
By Darrin C. Smith
Competent acting/directing and movie making, however the film was a bit slow and definitely could have used a push and the ending was a bit melodramatic. I did Love Israel Rodriguez, he was very believable and was nice to look at.
it's okayApr 12, 2013
By Raul S. Kristian
the movie was not what I expected. It was rather boring and not interesting.
I will not consider it as a good movie
Entertaining if you like watching young guysMar 19, 2013
By Nero Wolfe
The sex is minimal and most of it is straight but if you like watching young guys you may like this. They are all troublemakers.
Worth a watch in my opinion.
