We gave it a B

In this intricate Spanish sci-fi thriller, handsome young lothario Cesar (Noriega) gets mixed up with a mysterious vixen; their encounter leaves him horribly disfigured. Now he — and we — strain to discern whether his convoluted predicament is real or just a cryogenically induced illusion. While the toothsome young stars are indeed worth watching, the puzzle is ultimately so complex that it leaves the viewer rather perplexed. Reel Goodies (1:54) Cesar tests his conviction that life is but a dream by stepping off the edge of a skyscraper. The Last Detail Cruz will ride alongside Matt Damon in next year’s All the Pretty Horses. B
