CAT INDEX OVERVIEW
Medellin | Reviewed By Gaurav Dutta
Our lead character Rèda's (Ramzy Bedia) younger brother appears to have been kidnapped and is now in the dangerous hands of the Narcos of the Medelln cartel in this classic rescue mission. Rèda has a simple but insane strategy, set up a group and strike Colombia! It turns out that his brother wasn't really kidnapped, and now the trio has taken hostage the son of the most dangerous Nacho in Columbia. This team ends up consisting of three people, which is insane.
Things get even worse when this leads to the kidnapping of Brahim, the brother.The film features excellent performances from Franck Gastambide, Ramzy Bedia, Raymond Cruz, Anouar Toubali, and the legendary Mike Tyson.
Rèda has a ferocious personality, and neither he nor the guys benefit from his temper. Their polar opposite personalities, when combined with Stan (Gastambide), his lifelong friend, bring out the best and worst in each other.The fact that Rèda and El Diablo keep sending videos to each other and Face-Timing each other to show off how they're torturing and planning to hurt their captives made us laugh. While El Diablo appears to be a very scary threat, Stan, Rèda, and Chafix are suburban men. Their plans go wrong, and El Diablo's son is accidentally hurt when a shark bites off his legs.
Even though it tries to incorporate some sad scenes, this is not done well. It's difficult to feel really profound anytime on the grounds that it emerges from the blue.
Many of the plot points are out of place, and the narrative is weak. The majority of the sequence of events feels forced to advance the plot. Additionally, the depiction is far-fetched. For a group of people who aren't even trained for combat, the characters manage to get out of difficult situations far too easily. In the end, Medellin is unable to decide whether it is attempting to portray a genuine action movie or not taking itself seriously. Medellin is a fun ride that falls apart in the final act due to a series of mistakes. The carefree viewing is marred by the bungled conclusion, despite the fact that this film is not meant to be taken seriously.
