Storyline

Scorpion in Love is an urban fable that tells us the story of Julián, a young man who with his best friend Luis participates actively in a group of violent neonazis leaded by a fanatic man called Solís. Julian begins to train in a boxing gym and slowly sees how the discipline of this sport and the goodness of his trainer start changing him. But when he falls in love with Alyssa and his redemption is near, Luis and the rest of the pack will return to stop him from leaving behind his nazi past. Written by Morena Films

Quotes

Julián 'Alacrán' López: There's no need to be afraid to do something we're called to do. To fight our opponent. To win. It doesn't matter how many punches we take. It doesn't matter how many times we get knocked down, but how many times we get up and keep fighting. Nothing can defeat us but our own decisions. There's no need to be afraid of living.

One way out
22 May 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

How can you escape the circle of violence once you've entered it? With more violence? Or let's say "controlled" violence. Possible, but will our main character here be able to do so? You have to watch the movie to see that. It's a decent one, but not a great one. What seemed surprising at first, was the fact Javier Bardem was playing in it too ... might have to do with the fact another Bardem is on the cast list.

Whatever the case, the main actor is doing an OK job, portraying his dilemma. The tagged on love story (with added "color", no pun intended, but "story"/character serving) feels a bit off and put on, but it's overall believable (mostly). There is some nice advice to the boxing people, but I guess nothing someone already in the business wouldn't already know.
