So-so subtitled crime thriller has language, violence.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Nothing is as it seems. Motive alone does not make a murderer. Justice is for the living.

What's the Story?
INTUITION is a police procedural in which Juanez (Joaquin Furriel), a respected homicide detective, is suspected of committing a retaliatory murder, even though no evidence points in his direction. The DA (Rafael Ferro) secretly puts a rookie investigator named Pipa (Luisana Lopilato) on the case, but the evidence suggests the detective's innocence, a conclusion that doesn't please the DA. The investigation into Juanez does, however, expose corruption at the top of local law enforcement. At the same time, Juanez is investigating the murder of a young heiress whose family is exerting pressure for a quick arrest, putting further pressure on the DA.
Is It Any Good?
With a number of plot twists and turns, on paper Intuition sounds like it might be an absorbing take on the kind of all-too-familiar crime investigations widely available on television. But the marked lack of character development here makes this far less engaging than an average episode of Law & Order. The opening minutes are so confusing that the director cuts to a TV news report to explain the first 14 minutes of action. None of the characters ever come alive in the director's plodding devotion to getting from one ordinary moment to the next. Good performances by Furriel and Lopilato are the only assets that keeps this interesting.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about friendship issues. Does Intuition realistically depict how friends can drift apart when their economic situations are different? If so, how?
How do the police investigations depicted here differ from those seen on television shows? Does this differ enough to make the story seem worthy of a full-length movie? Why?
What are some of the ways the movie tells us who is a good guy and who is a bad guy?
