Sure - If you had looked down the page at the replies from people on how it was done, you would have found this:

1. Duplicate the original footage and place it above that layer.
2. Change the Blending option of the duplicate to "Overlay"
3. De-saturate the duplicate layer
4. Invert the duplicate (apply "invert" effect)
5. Add a Gaussian Blur to it
6. Duplicate the original again and place it above the first duplicate
7. Change the blending type of the 2nd duplicate layer to "Linear Light"
8. Lower the opacity of the 2nd duplicate until you get your desired result.

While this may only get you close, there are actually multiple ways it could have been done. There are plugins, such as Magic Bullet Looks, which can get you close. But all of these are dependent on a colorist, or After Effects artist, who knows what they're doing - it's not just a button you push...

I would add one more - make sure that the footage you use is at least 4:2:2 if not 4:4:4. You need all the color information you can get to be able to achieve good results.
If you have a DSLR or a HD camera that records to a 4:2:0 format, then use a HDMI output (or SDI if available) to record to an external device- such as a Atomos Ninja/Samurai in a 4:2:2 10bit format (ProRes or DnXHD)

I can't remember where I found this, duplicate your layer and change the transfer mode to linear light(sometimes I will duplicate twice and add an overlay transfer also), add this preset and it will get you most of the way to a High Pass look, maybe it will help you out.

Many thanks again John Cuevas! I did as you said, and used that preset and the look is very good! Just add and adjustment layer to ajust colours with levels and vibrance! That´s it! Impressive preset, it really makes magic!
