Ingin menonton film aksi gangster yang dipadu unsur beladiri berkelas? Xtreme dijamin adalah jawabnya. Xtreme adalah film aksi gangster produksi Spanyol garapan Daniel Benmayor keluaran Netflix. Film ini dibintangi Teo Garcia, Oscar Jaenada, Andrea Duro, serta Sergio Peris-Mencheta. Seberapa menghiburkan film ini?

Maximo (Farcia) bekerja dan loyal pada satu kelompok gangster besar di Barcelona. Satu ketika, sang putra gangster, Lucero bertindak di luar kontrol sang ayah untuk bisa mengambil tampuk pimpinan. Orang-orang yang loyal dengan sang ayah dihabisi seketika, tidak terkecuali Max. Dua tahun setelahnya, Max yang kehilangan putranya berusaha membalaskan dendam dengan dibantu oleh Maria, asisten ayah Lucero. Seorang pemuda bernama Leo, secara tak sengaja masuk di tengah-tengah situasi tersebut dan membuyarkan rencana Max dan Maria.

Sejak awal, film ini telah mengumbar adegan aksi brutal tembak menembak yang menariknya diselipi adegan bela diri yang lumayan apik. Plotnya sendiri berjalan ringan dan menarik, yang memang sudah puluhan kali kita lihat dalam film aksi gangster sejenis. Pembeda adalah tentu sosok Max. Sang aktor, Teo Garcia, rasanya belum pernah kita lihat sebelumnya. Garcia mampu bermain dingin serta kalem secara bersamaan. Karisma sang aktor dan kemampuan beladirinya amat mencuri perhatian sepanjang filmnya, walau aksinya tidak sesuperior macam Liam Neeson atau Steven Seagal. Aksi bela diri memang mendapat porsi yang dominan dengan tata kareografi yang mengesankan pula.

Xtreme adalah sebuah aksi “revenge” gangster berkelas dengan kisah solid yang didukung kuat para kastingnya. Naskahnya tidak melulu aksi dengan menyisipkan sedikit sisi drama, khususnya hubungan “ayah-anak” antara Max dan Leo. Keras, kasar, dan brutal, Xtreme jelas satu level dengan film-film aksi berkelas sejenis macam seri Equalizer atau Taken. Bagi penikmat genrenya jangan lewatkan film ini!
