Verdict on Amor Bandido
Amor Bandido is an erotic thriller following a forbidden romance between two lovers. It seems like everything is going to plan for the lovers until the truth comes out and the young man finds himself in a battle to survive.
While unfolding in a different manner, the movie seems to get some inspiration from ‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’. Whereas somebody is taken to a remote location and used in a bigger game for money. The story does seem to fly by a little too fast, not letting the linger of doubt and insecurity about everything hold for more threat.
The performances in the film are strong, with the two leads, Romina Ricci and Renato Quattordio getting to shine together throughout the film.
Final Thoughts – Amor Bandido is a twist-filled erotic thriller.
