What have I seen on Netflix? Polar

Last Sunday I saw Polar on Netflix which is based on the graphic novel by Víctor Santos, which was very successful and has been taken to the screen to try to emulate the success of the comic. 
The film is fast-paced from beginning to end, with a main plot without nooks and crannies, which won't let you breathe until the end, with a lot of blood and a lot of violence. It reminded me of Tarantino's films, but Polar goes a step further. That's all I'm saying.
I've already said that the highlight of this film is the rhythm, but so is the photography, as if they had wanted to bring the comic to the screen and it's true that they've succeeded.
The weakest part, from my point of view, is the script because it is very predictable and you know, broadly speaking, what will happen in the film, but this circumstance does not detract from its interest and I assure you that you will spend the 118 minutes that the tape lasts with your eyes glued to the screen.
Polar is not a film that will go down in history, that's for sure, but it is an entertaining film for lovers of Tarantine-style cinema.
