The main character does all kinds of mischief. He is a thug!

A naughty and manipulative character, of those who will do anything to achieve a goal. This guy is capable of selling his mother if it brings him any advantage. In addition to being bad, the film is the state of the art of the bad character who plays nice.

What a disappointment!!!

Very weak this movie, disappointing...And veeery predictable from start to finish!!!

Luis Tosar is okay, I have seen better from him, and that's the only positive.

The story is poorly edited and worse detailed, as in a hurry. The exciting moments are only a few,... it doesn't have to be action all the time, that's not what I mean,but there is nothing psychological or interesting here.

It turns into a love story very quickly and the ending is disappointing and bitter. The powerful always win, in Spain perhaps.??

.. I have a lot of hope that it won't be always like that, fight!

ANOTHER FEATHER IN LUIS TOSAR'S CAP

Código Emperador or Code name Emperor is a suspenseful detective story with surprises and twists. Maybe not of Hitchcock quality, but certainly worth watching.

Luis Tosar plays the central character and once again delivers. He has been awarded and nominated in Spain quite often and deserves all the accolades. He has great focus and embodies his characters to the t. As he is in almost every scene, the rest of the cast can only follow suit.

Tightly directed and scripted.

Available on Netflix.

Pathetic Ending

Those who deserved vengeance never received it. Basic script writing of a ba guy falling in love and drifting in th the end. My worst watch of the year so far.

Codename ... what?

Maybe I am too much of a fan of Luis Tosar. Maybe that is true more than anything (like me also being too nice to movies most of the time) - but maybe just maybe it is deserving ... considering the performance he is able to deliver ... once again. He is phenomenal - and if you think his character is one sided ... than you either have not seen the whole movie or didn't pay enough attention to it.

No offense, but even if you know or discover slowly what he is - there is more to him than meets the (private) eye! No pun intended. The thriller is predictable in at least certain areas - like the beginning. But it is important, because two major characters are being introduced. And because I had not seen any trailer or read anything, I was not able to know everything that would be going on. It kept me guessing for a second or two - is this going to happen next? Are they there, because .. someone else is there too? Questions will be answered - but as I already said, even more important is that we get to know the characters. Mainly the main male one - and how he ticks. Because he may be one thing mostly, but he also is a human. Which he shows later on, when he "helps" someone else with "girlfriend" problems! We need that scene to connect with him - no matter what is morally right or the fact that it may not be entirely morally right ... actually there is a lot wrong with what he is doing.

The thriller works on many levels - and yes our main character is flawed ... not just a little, but a lot. But he has to go through a journey ... he was one thing for a long time. You can't change entirely from one moment to the other. Will he be able to change? Will "they" let him change? Well watch to find out (no pun intended)
